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