Tai Chi & Qigong in Glasgow


Current Classes Postponed (COVID19)

Unfortunately, I’ve had to postpone the Tai Chi classes due to current social distancing guidelines.

I am currently running a limited number of online classes for regular students and may offer some more online classes over the coming months.

I will assess the situation of the coming weeks, as the guidance develops. And hopefully can restart in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, stay safe and well.  Regards, Alan
