Indoor and Zoom Classes

*** Beginners welcome ***

Indoor classes

Indoor classes have restarted in the Parish Hall, 20A Church Path, Emsworth, Hampshire, PO10 7DP

The Parish Hall is a large, pleasant and well-ventilated (plenty of open windows) venue.   (See Covid-19 precautions at the bottom of the page.)  

Beginners are welcome.  All classes are well-attended.  There are spare places, but with classes starting up again indoors they are filling up.  Contact me if you are interested in joining one of the classes.

_____________________________

You will be joining an established group who are keen and friendly with a good grounding in Qigong and Tai Chi, run by an experienced Advanced Instructor Member of the Tai Chi & Qigong Union for Great Britain.

We all know what it is like to be a newcomer to the group and we will help you settle in. You will quickly pick it up, join in and start to gain the health benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong practice.  And you will enjoy the experience!

Contact me at emsworthtaichi@gmail.com if you are interested in joining.

Wear loose-fitting clothes and either go barefoot or wear flat shoes such as plimsolls, pumps or light trainers.

Covid-19

The Parish Hall is run to strict Covid-19 regulations.

With certain exceptions face masks must be worn.  Select a mask which is light and easy to breathe through.

There is excellent ventilation in the hall with plenty of open windows.  When the weather is cold the heating will be on, but with the windows wide open it is best to wear layers to keep warm.

In this Covid-19 nightmare ensuring social distancing is my personal priority and I take whatever precautions are necessary to keep the social distance.  I will ensure we can all apply social distancing absolutely in class although this will limit the range of exercises and forms taught in class.

If at any time the Parish Hall is temporarily closed due to changed Covid-19 regulations then classes will continue on-line using Zoom.  Both the Yang Tai Chi short form on the spot and Shibashi are ideal for Zoom classes, where participants have limited space in front of their computer.

Class fees

Classes cost £9 each, when you buy a block of 5 classes for £45.

There is no time limit for using the advanced payments so you aren’t disadvantaged if you miss the occasional session due to illness or holiday.

If you have already attended an indoor class in the week then the class fee is halved if you want to also attend the Shibashi 1 and Shipashi 2 (Zoom class).

Alternatively you can pay-on-the day where the cost of each class is £10, payable at the beginning of each class.
