Flexible Attendance:

Students can attend classes on different days if unable to make the same time every week due to individual circumstances. Missed classes can be made up anytime within the 6 week block but cannot be carried over into a new block.

Students wishing to attend additional classes per week can book a second block for a reduced price (£30/25) or drop in to additional classes on individual basis (£8/6).

What to bring to class:

Tai Chi can be practised in any comfortable clothing that you can move freely in. You can practise with or without shoes – flat soled shoes are generally better, as they help you feel the connection with the ground – please bring suitable indoor footwear if intending to practice with shoes on. You may also like to bring some water to drink during breaks.
