Symphony of Sacred Sound is Baaaacckk!

If you missed this amazing event last time around we hope to see you this time! Please join us for a SYMPHONY OF SACRED SOUND! A Sound Bath of Crystals, Singing Bowls, Chimes, Bells, and Tuning Forks. Sound healing uses the power of sacred music to reharmonize the entire body to its most beneficial state. When one hears the sound frequencies, the cells become attuned to that frequency and cause perfect harmony within the body. The different frequencies played during the sound bath will quiet the mind, decrease stress and anxiety, improve sleep, release physical and emotional pain to restore the body, mind and spirit to a sense of balance, creating a deeper sense of peace and well-being.

Please bring your own yoga mat, sleeping bag, blanket and pillows as needed for comfort (the studio is not carpeted) as you will lie on the floor. Some chairs will be available for those who cannot use the floor position or you may bring your own fold-up chair. This is a very transformative experience. I look forward to meeting you and seeing you there.

Event hosted by Lorri Mathewson, RMT, LMT has been using sound in her massage therapy practice for 30 years. She is a certified Biofield Tuning Practicioner and uses tuning forks in her healing practice.

When: Saturday, October 30th from 7 – 7:45 pm

We’re baaaack… with a New Beginner Class!!

Tired of being cooped up in the house? Looking to get some of your flexibility and focus back? Would you like to begin to improve your balance and muscle strength?

You can start a Tai Chi practice no matter what your level of fitness or health because Tai Chi may be altered to fit the level of the student.

This class is great for someone who has never done Tai Chi before or someone who used to practice and would like a refresher class to help get back into the practice. Our studio is an open, bright and relaxing environment to learn in. We have friendly instructors and enthusiastic students who support people who are new to Tai Chi. All are welcome! You’ll find the specifics of the class below.

Tai Chi Revolution Classes Resuming in May!

Hello to everyone! We’ve made it through the terrible winter spike of COVID and are now looking at lower rates of infection and the opportunities that vaccination provides for people who are able to be vaccinated. We are really excited to finally be able to say that the studio will now be opening up again in May and, depending on weather conditions, some classes may also be held in the park as we move into the summer months.

The first class will be on Tuesday, May 4th from 6 – 7:30pm at the studio (see information below for indoor protocols). This weekly Tuesday night class will continue to be a beginner class with a focus on fundamentals and learning the basic movements of the set. We will start the month off with some review to get everyone back into thinking about form and focusing on our mindfulness in the moment.

Our other on-going classes will also be starting back up in May. Check back here for updates as we put our schedule together. You can also find us on Facebook; search for “Tai Chi Revolution” to find our page. Join our group to stay in the loop on new class offerings, what’s going on at the studio, and for some interesting reading about Tai Chi in general!

Memorizing Those Annoying Basics Is The Road To Mastery

Jump Start 2020 with a New Tai Chi Class!

Yikes!  It’s happening!  2019 is rapidly coming to a close and a new year is almost upon us.  For me, the start of a new year brings an opportunity to refocus on my own health and well-being and bringing balance back into my life.  That’s something that I often struggle with and Tai Chi has become an integral part of helping me maintain that mind – body balance.

Here at Tai Chi Revolution we’d like to invite you to join us for a new six week class (class details below).  This “beginner’s class” is designed to give students a foundation in Tai Chi movement principles, basic concepts and techniques, and the health benefits of regular practice. This class is for people who have no prior experience with Tai Chi or who have practiced Tai Chi but have been away from it and would like to get back into it.  This class is conducted in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment where everyone is welcome.

Our practice of Tai Chi is focused on the mind/body interaction and integrating slow, intentional movements to help strengthen, relax, coordinate and integrate the physical body and mind to improve overall health.  Regular practice of Tai chi can improve balance control, fitness, and flexibility, and may offer the benefits of reducing the risk of falls.  It is safe for people of all ages, as it does not put too much stress on the muscles and joints.   We hope to see you at our studio!
