Calm the Mind, Strengthen the Body, Polish the Spirit
Welcome to the Exeter School of Tai Chi Chuan
Chen style Tai Chi Chuan is a Chinese Martial Art that is famous around the world for the health and fitness benefits that it conveys. Since the year 2000 we have followed the teachings and training methods of the Head of the Chen Family, Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang. We now also follow his nephew and Chief Coach, Master Chen Ziqiang.
Classes offer a challenging mix of holistic exercises that enhance body and mind. The body will gain strength, flexibility, co-ordination, relaxation and balance. The mind is trained to become calm and focused.
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:
Mondays 10.30am-11.30am with Jessica
Tuesdays 12.00pm-1.15pm with Tom & Helen
Thursdays 10.30am-11.30am with Jessica
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
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.
We recommend that you consult your GP or Hospital Consultant regarding the applicability of any recommendations and follow all safety instructions before beginning any exercise program. When participating in any exercise or exercise program, there is the possibility of physical injury. If you engage in this exercise or exercise program, you agree that you do so at your own risk, are voluntarily participating in these activities, and that you assume all risk of injury to yourself.
