Class update May 2022
Whilst the rules regarding gatherings have been eased. We can look forward to more classes. 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. In order to maintain quality and safety, there is a cap on the maximum of 10 students per class.
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2022 On Saturday 30th April, we will be hosting a free session at Dunorlan Park. Please follow this link.
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. Tai Chi is a very sophisticated art and it would be difficult to learn and digest 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. If you miss out on a few sessions, then you feel you're left behind. Also, you might want to ask yourself if a course provides value for money? At White Horse Tai Chi, we prefer a relaxed approach, where students come and learn at their own pace.
Hawkenbury United Reformed Church
This year, we'll be holding classes at Hawkenbury United Reformed Church all year round. Classes will be in the large hall and both classes are suitable for beginners to intermediate.
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 12 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.

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 Dunorlan 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.
