Plans to restart classes in spring 2021:
After the current lockdown ends and as tiers allow / immunisations are rolled out, we hope to run a new timetable which will include:
The two Tuesday and two Wednesday classes at The Mytchett Centre, for the same people who were previously attending these classes in the autumn / run up to Christmas.
As restrictions are lifted further and it is safe to increase the number of people in the class back up towards the pre-covid numbers, then people who left some time ago due to Covid concerns will also be offered their places back
A new pay-monthly Thursday morning Mytchett Centre class from 10-11am which will be suitable for people who previously attended any of our classes, and for new joiners alike. Focusing on Tai Chi Qigong sets for Health
A new pay monthly Monday lunchtime Tai Chi QIGONG class 12.30-1.30pm at Blackwater and Hawley Memorial Hall (already fully subscribed on paper, just waiting the go ahead following Lockdown / Tier restrictions)
A second NEW pay monthly Hawley Tai Chi QIGONG class on MONDAYS from 11.30-12.30 mainly for people who attended any Monday or Friday class at Hawley in the past - some people told me that they would like to return once they have the immunisation, so I will contact you first when we can restart to see if you are ready to restart.
Any remaining places in Hawley classes or Thursday Mytchett class will be offered to new joiners, so please send in an enquiry and we will keep you on our mailing list to be informed of when we can start.
At present, because of small venue sizes for our evening classes and social distancing requirements, there are no plans to restart these classes at the present time.
The cost of our classes is currently £7 per class, payable one month in advance, excluding school holidays. We are no longer offering pay when you attend classes as limited class numbers due to social distancing regulations means that every available place must return a profit in order for us to operate, sorry!
Learning options during lockdown / Tier restrictions are:
1. Pre-Recorded, any-time Video Learning
£15* per month - Unlimited viewing
and / or
2. Live, interactive scheduled internet classes via 'Zoom'
£20* per month - Unlimited classes
*(Optional, combined Classes + Video and Zoom + Video subscriptions are available offering a £5 saving on your Video subscription )
It's important, for the good of our emotional and mental health, to feel a part of something . If you're one of many who don't feel safe meeting in a group class just yet, we can still connect with another through our online community
Through your Tai Chi & Qigong practice, you'll tap into your natural ability to stay well Your practice will strengthen your immune system and soothe your mind, promoting a sense of joyful well being and contentment
Online Learning Options:
Option 1: Unlimited, Anytime, Pre-recorded Video learning
A Video subscription costs £15 for a full month / pro-rata for less than a month with no rolling contract.
It gives you access to 220+ (and growing) teaching videos at any time of day or night and as many times as you want, during your subscription period
Subscribe one month at a time for £15, if you don't attend our Classes or Zooms.
If you book to attend our 'in person' classes or Zooms you can buy a joint 'Zoom plus Videos' or 'Classes plus Videos' subscription and save month around 30% on the Video subscription
Everything you'll learn via the videos is supported by and is transferable to, our physical classes
Option 2: Unlimited, Live, Interactive, Timetabled Zoom classes
Prefer a scheduled live class where there's a bit of real-time interaction between us? That's where ZOOM comes in! Zoom is a type of group video calling platform which revolutionised the teaching and learning of all manner of things during Lockdown.
The benefit: I can see & hear you and you can see & hear me!
Just like the classes at our venues, we have a regular weekly Zoom timetable
We offer a month's UNLIMITED access to all of our Zoom classes
for £20 per month (or less if our classes take a break, eg school holidays)
You'll learn best if you Zoom into the same class(es) each week, for continuous progress, but you can Zoom into any additional classes you like, with the exception of Tuesday morning Beijing 24 class which is only for students who have made a bit of progress on that form already.
And when Covid measures are relaxed further and we can re-open more venues we'll provide daytime & evening classes at various levels starting from complete beginner in
Farnham / Aldershot / Farnborough / Mytchett / Hawley / Frimley areas
No Contracts, No joining fees
