Taiji / Tai Chi (9 wk course)

  • Tapestry Massage & Yoga and Wildwood Apothecary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Taiji (Tai Chi) is a very old and very effective exercise system that is characterized by slow, elegant, simple movements. The benefits of this contemplative and meditative exercise can include improved balance, flexibility, increased stamina, weight loss, and stress reduction. 

Radford Tapestry will be offering a nine-week Taiji course beginning April 2, 2018 and running through May 28, 2018.  This will be a course appropriate for the beginner and for the seasoned practitioner.  This nine-week course will introduce common themes and practices for Taiji in general, and the Yang Style 16 posture demonstration form will be taught.  Taiji practice does involve learning a series of movements.  Attendance for the whole course is recommended to achieve the maximum benefit and for ease of learning and retaining the form, although students are welcome to join in when they can. 

The instructor will be Beth Kelsey, a student of many styles and forms of Taiji hand forms and weapons forms (spear, saber, sword and fan) since the 1980’s.  She has trained with many skilled teachers from the U.S., Canada, China, and Taiwan including Grandmaster Yang Jun, official lineage holder of Yang Family Style Taiji. 

No special equipment or clothing is necessary other than supportive athletic footwear.

The Wild Woman Project New Moon Circle in Aries

Join Cassandra and women around the world as we focus on our new moon in Aries. 

$10.00 suggested donation.

More about The Wild Woman Project Circle: 
In this international network of circles, you can expect: A Sensuous Sacred Space held by a trained WWP Facilitator with Guided Meditation, Sharing, Intention Setting Ritual & more held on or near the New Moon.
These circles are not associated with a singular path or religion, but rather, an inclusive coming together with women from all paths. We all come from different spiritual/cultural backgrounds and gather around the ideas of: Sisterhood (having each others backs, empowering one another), a respect for the earth (wildness, turning to nature as a teacher) & co-creation (the understanding that just as we co-create our experience in circle, so do we co-create life on earth). We also tend to be a heart-centered bunch, lots of laughter & tears.
We unite under a common theme each New Moon & explore it in our own ways. Each Facilitator brings her own special magic & orientation based her own knowledge and passions.
These Circles are open to all who identify as women.

Qigong with Beth Kelsey

Qigong (Chi Kung) is a very old Chinese system of movement that can be used for health, longevity, and meditation.  Its benefits include increased flexibility, balance, range of motion in the joints of the body, regulation of breath and organ function, and can help mental awareness become calm, focused, clear, and mindful.  Qigong movements are very simple, comfortable and fun to learn.  They are appropriate for all experience and fitness levels.  The exercises are simple enough to remember, so practice at home is easy.   There is no special equipment or special clothing required for Qigong practice. 

Upcoming Dates: Monday, July 10
