ep 12,Trey Crispin: Emotional Embodiment and Taiji

Trey Crispin speaks about emotional embodiment, Taiji, and Qi Gong.

He has has lived in Asheville NC for the last 15 years. He started teaching Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong 12 years ago. Presently he is a Certified First level instructor for Shaolin Tai Chi Chuan and holds a third level (out of 4) certification from the American Tai Chi and Qigong Association. His professional teaching practice and sphere has been primarily working with people in recovery from substance addictions and those in Mental Health programs both in treatment and afterward. He has been part of the Volunteer Staff at the Asheville VA since 2003 where he worked with the Substance Addiction ward, the Pain Management groups, and the PTSD support groups.

The core component of these classes that is shared by each is the awareness of Posture, Breath, and Intention. By refitting the battle ready mind-body connection and awareness to the non combat real life situations a person can learn to manage then flourish as a highly sensitive human. This practice can take the at times debilitating sensitivity that person has lived with and through and transmute that into a persons Super Power. This essentially is Trey Crispin’s path. He strives to remind people of this knowledge and watch them flourish once they own it and live it.

After multiple requests over the last 2 years Trey has just opened his practice to the general public. He will start working with private clients and small (3 person max) classes who wish to explore using Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong to help manage PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression. Class schedule is yet to be determined and will follow interest. Cost will be sliding scale ($45 to $135 per hour). Any community member who wishes to meet with him for a hour and see what he is offering and how he teaches is welcome to do so for free.
