What to bring to class:

Tai Chi & Qigong can be practised in any comfortable clothing that you can move freely in, 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.
