Class Timetable

Current Classes Postponed (COVID19)

Unfortunately, I’ve had to postpone the Tai Chi & Qigong classes for the time being given the current social distancing guidelines. 

I am running a limited number of online zoom classes for regular and new students (see main page for details).

I will assess the situation of the coming weeks, and will likely return to a mixture of ‘real’ and online classes in September. 

In the meantime, stay safe and well.

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 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 want to bring some water to drink during breaks.
