Students will be required to have memorised the previous form sections, before progressing through each new section of the form. Class recordings will be provided for home practice of each new section.

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. You may want to have some water to drink during breaks.
