The T’ai Chi forms are taught at a slow, gentle pace to improve balance and mental relaxation while increasing good concentration and right brain / left brain capabilities and overall good physical health and well-being. Come dressed comfortably and experience the beautiful, handsome movements of T’ai Chi and Qigong.
After teaching, performing and choreographing ballet and modern dance, Martha Gregory was introduced to the fluidity and gracefulness that is T'ai Chi.

She also provides demonstrations for the medical and educational communities
Basic/Restorative Yoga is for all ages and physical abilities. The key to basic yoga is learning to breathe with the body while strengthening muscles. Basic/Restorative encourages each individual to find their own point of strength and lengthening while working on the mat or chair. Yoga is about the union of the mind, body and spirit. My mission as a teacher is to release the yoga student's mind from expectations - allowing the teacher within each student to recognize their limitations and reject being competitive and lift the heart to joy.
Stemming from Hatha Yoga principles, these classes focus on linking breath with motion in order to help create a relaxing practice that leaves you with an overall sense of well-being. All levels are welcome to all classes. Modifications are offered in order to make each class accessible to all levels. Students are encouraged to develop their practice on their mats by recognizing what benefits their bodies. This helps to create an enjoyable practice that supports individual needs and growth. www.practiceofpeaceyoga.com
Appropriate for the beginner who wants to build a strong foundation of basic Yoga postures, relaxation, breathing techniques and to refine and master the fundamentals. Poses and sequences are practiced with alignment in mind offering the opportunity to gain confidence, strength and flexibility. Modifications are offered and the use of props are encouraged, making it suitable for all levels. Emphasis is placed on breath awareness and being mindful of the body’s alignment or limitations. This combination can help guide the mind to move toward a more meditative state.
3rd Friday of each month: Robbin’s yoga practice is joined by David Key, Therapeutic Sound, using wooden flutes, frame drum to create a deep meditative state and a place of healing.
