Class update August 2021
Since the last update, the Government has relaxed the rules on gatherings. However, students have advised that they prefer there to be social distancing. We feel that this is sensible and we shall continue like we have so far.
Do you teach courses?
This is a question I get asked a lot. The answer is, no I don't. From experience and from observations. Tai Chi and Qigong don't lend themselves well in a course setting. Everybody learns at a different rate and it is normal for have to revisit certain moves, techniques and theories. Tai Chi is a very sophisticated art and it would be difficult to learn and digest a lot of information. in a set amount of time. Then there is the question of your schedule and whether you can make time to commit to this course. How much do you wish to take from this course and weigh it against what you're actually going to achieve. If you miss out on a few sessions, then you feel you're behind. Also, you might want to ask yourself if a course provides value for money? You end up not being able to concentrate on what you want to do. If you feel restricted and under pressure to complete a course, then that's further from Daoism than you'd like it to be. At White Horse Tai Chi, we prefer a relaxed approach, where students come and learn at their own pace.
Hawkenbury United Reformed Church
From Wednesday 1st September, we'll be going back to Hawkenbury United Reformed Church for our evening class. Classes will be in the large hall and both classes are suitable for beginners to intermediate.
6.30 - 7.30pm - Spaces available
7.30 - 8.30pm - Spaces available
If you're interested in joining these classes, please let me which session you wish to attend. In order to give students enough space, there will be a maximum of 10 per class, . Due to issues of non-attendance, fees are required to be paid in advance. The fee is £20 for 4 lessons, or £7 for a single lesson*. I feel this would be fairer to those who do want to learn. I'm unsure as to what restriction may be in place in the near future and this class may close on short notice**.
There is parking nearby, if you're driving. Please be considerate, as this is a residential area.
Tai Chi in the Park @Dunorlan Park
Saturday classes at Dunorlan Park will continue until Christmas. This class is currently full. In order to maintain quality, I'm unable to take on new students.
Saturday 10.30 - 11.30am - Full
If you are interested in joining me, please feel free to contact me in advance. The fee is £5 per class. Payable on the day or in advance*. The group is currently for beginners and intermediate level students. I have set up a Facebook group page and updates regarding Tai Chi in the Park will be posted there. If it rains, we will meet in the space under the cafe.
I am usually in the park on weekends, so please feel free to come along for a chat.
A portion of the takings will be donated to the Dunorlan Park Seed Bank. This was something my late teacher did and I will carry on with this tradition.
I am looking to open more classes. Please follow my website, Facebook or Instagram for more details.
Thank for reading my update and I hope to see you soon.
