Update from 12th April 2021

April 12th sees more restrictions relaxed and a return to Tai Chi in the Park!

The Park is question will be Pinces Gardens in St Thomas (near the wisteria tunnel), EX2 9ED.

As “formally organised” sessions, the park classes are not subject to the Rule of 6 so are unlimited in the number that can attend.

However, is it really important that we are all sensible and continue to follow the rules and guidance still in place to keep everyone safe.  We do not know what underlying medical conditions everyone else has, we also do not know who has or has not been vaccinated.

We’ve written a detailed risk assessment (available on the link below) and it is important that everyone takes a look and follows the actions we’ve identified in order to reduce risk to everyone attending; particularly around congregating before and after classes, sharing transport and physical contact.

We will continue to offer a mix of Park and Zoom classes until we are able to hold indoor classes again.  All Park sessions are of course dependant on good weather.

Our schedule therefore from Monday 12th April will be:

Park sessions:

  • Mondays 10.30am-11.30am with Jessica
  • Tuesdays 12.00pm-1.15pm with Tom & Helen
  • Thursdays 10.30am-11.30am with Jessica

Zoom classes:

  • Mondays 6.00pm-7.30pm with Tom & Helen
  • Tuesdays 10.00am-11.15am with Tom & Helen
  • Tuesdays 6.00pm-7.30pm with Tom & Helen
  • Wednesdays 11.00am-11.45am Qi Gong with Tom
  • Wednesdays 5.00pm-6.00pm Beginners Tai Chi with Tom

Class Schedule from Monday 4th January 2021

Due to the new Tier 3 restrictions the majority of our classes will be returning to Zoom from Monday 4th January.

Jess however will be holding her Monday morning class in Pinces Gardens.  Please contact Jess direct for further details of her classes.

Our schedule therefore from Monday will be:

Indoor Classes restart from 5th October

We’re delighted to be restarting classes and workshops at the St Thomas Centre from 5th October.

Safeguards will be in place, which include observing social distance, providing hand sanitiser, ensuring doors and windows are open reducing the need to touch handles, minimal handling of cash and not giving any physical corrections.

Please ensure you dress appropriately (as it may be draughty) and bring a drink as the kitchen will be unavailable.

We look forward to seeing you in person again soon.
