Classes - Online & In-Person



UPDATE JUNE 2021


We will be resuming our weekly daytime class at The North London Buddhist Centre this month, details below.  We are continuing to offer some classes online via Zoom and are consulting with regular participants to develop a mixed offering in the months ahead.




Schedule



Monday in-person morning class:

Yang-style Taijiquan for beginners

Times: 8-9 am

Cost: £12 per class by monthly block (via Paypal: paypal.me/RichardQigong or contact for bank transfer details)

Venue: Highbury Fields (Top/north end, within five minutes walk of Highbury & Islington Underground/Overground station - contact us for fuller directions if you want to come along for this one)


You may have seen T'ai Chi being performed and wondered what it is like to actually do.  You may have tried a class, but felt a bit lost when confronted with a long set of movements to learn.  This class may be for you.  We will be looking at the basics and working with a very short form.  The Yang style 10 Form takes its name from the number of postures involved – just ten!  Nevertheless, it includes some of the signature postures of the Yang style, such as Part the Wild Horse's Mane and Cloud Hands.  It is incredibly compact, too, perfectly suitable for practising at home.  We will go slowly, building up the sequence gradually.  Why not give it a go?  A great way to start your day and week.

All online classes are delivered via Zoom.  This software is free and is straightforward to install and use, so don't let it put you off.  After following the link to the class you will be prompted to download and install Zoom if you don't already have it.  It is best to allow time to do this before the class, or even do it at some point in advance.


A few disclaimers, notes on etiquette, etc. for online classes:


- We will aim to open the class ten minutes before the time shown to allow you to get set up and settled

- You are taking part in these classes remotely - please take responsibility for your own health and well-being

- Wear loose and comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely

- Make sure you have an appropriate amount of clear space around you

- Do not do anything that doesn't feel right for you, and go gently

- Keep some water to hand if your room is warm

- Be aware of what is "in shot" in regards of your own privacy and to avoid causing offence to others

- Your mic will be muted on arrival.  There will be an opportunity to talk at the end of class (and possibly before)
