Welcome to our studio!

Cate leads a segment of a class

Several classes are available

These are classes in traditional qi gong and t’ai chi taught in a relaxed and casual manner.  All of the moves are taught in detail and at a pace all can follow.  Classes are kept to the enrollment that will allow comfortable space for each student as well as to allow for individual attention.  Sets of moves are taught so that the student will have a series of moves to perform at home for practice and to “keep” and use forever to improve health.

 

 

In the studio, policies, amenities, a few logistics

Please remove your shoes upon entering

We have newly refurbished this space, and have added comfortable padded carpet.  Practicing t’ai chi on carpet requires slightly better balance than on a hard floor, so greater leg strength and balance coordination is developed.  Softer surfaces are easier on the knees and spine, and provide us with the opportunity to practice barefooted, or in stocking feet, which also helps develop the muscles in the legs, feet and ankles.  In order to keep this surface fresh and clean for all of us, we have implemented a “no street shoes” policy in the studio. There is a shoe rack directly inside the studio door, and you are requested to remove your shoes at that point.  Feel free to wear socks, go barefooted, or bring “studio shoes” of your choosing, which should have a smooth sole for easy movement on the carpet.  These shoes can be of any type, but just worn in the studio and not on the street.

If you wear orthotic or corrective shoes or have certain footwear needs, you are, of course, exempt from this request.

 

Have some tea…

We provide teas for your enjoyment before and during class, and we have installed a “drinks shelf” along the studio walls.   You are also welcome to bring any drinks with you.  We request that there be no food in the studio, except for specific dietary needs, such as for those of diabetics.

 

Arrival times…

We will be at the studio approximately 10-15 minutes before class starts.  Feel free to come and settle in, ask questions, have some tea.  Please try to arrive on time for classes, as we will begin at the designated times, but do not fret about being late on occasion; still come to class, and relax.

 

Where to park,  a few details on our location. Driving directions are linked below.

We are located at the corner of Euclid and Austin Avenues in Inman Park/Little 5 Points, address above. We are located just downstairs from the Horizon Theatre.
