Spring 2021

Hello all,

Tai Chi classes have continued on Zoom through the winter on Wednesdays at 2pm with great success.

We look forward to Tai Chi outdoors when the weather gets warmer and we are able to meet in groups again. I will let you know when this happens if you have expressed interest in doing Tai Chi outdoors.

I hope that we will be able to move back to classes indoors at some point when it is safe to do so at our usual venues.

Meanwhile, stay fit and healthy and I look forward to seeing you before too long.


Summer News

Hello everyone, I hope that you are all keeping well and safe from the COVID-19 virus. I apologise for not updating my website for so long. However, we have been busy and I have kept in touch with Tai Chi students by email.

From Wednesday 20 May I have been teaching Tai Chi on Zoom every week at 2pm. This will continue for the foreseeable future.

From Tuesday 7 July I have been doing Tai Chi in Hatherley Park at 2pm or 6.30pm on alternate Tuesdays. This has been for six people. The first week of August was a rest week for me.

The above arrangements will continue for the month of August. Please contact me by email if you wish to take part. This is for continuing students only.

Best wishes for the rest of the summer. September information will be available later in the month.


Open a Rainbow Bridge !

Tuesday 17 March – I am sorry but I feel obliged to cancel all Tai Chi classes until further notice. There would have been 3 weeks including today until the end of term. After that a two week break for Easter will take place. I will think about restarting on the 21 April depending on the situtation regarding the COVID-19 virus. I will miss you all and our Tai Chi sessions together. Maybe you will remember to do some practice at home. Most of all keep moving and stretching! Stay safe and well. Gillian

COVID-19 & Church Piece Car Park Repairs

COVID-19 Sensible precautions

Regarding the spread of COVID-19 virus I trust you will all take appropriate precautions; for instance staying at home if you don’t feel well and isolating yourself for the appropriate length of time if you have been abroad to one of the countries where the virus has been spreading rapidly. I feel duty bound to mention this and trust you will take responsible and appropriate action.

Church Piece Car Park Charlton Kings

This is to let you know in advance that Church Piece Car Park, the nearest car park to the Stanton Hall, is to be closed for repairs and maintenance from 1st to 5th March. If you cannot find anywhere nearer you can park up Horsefair Street near the allotments and cemetery, off the road. There is some parking near the Scout Hut, I believe, if you can find it – down a track on the left as you look up Horsefair Street.

Extra December Classes

Extra classes on Tuesday 10 December and Wednesday 11 at the usual times. Stanton Hall Charlton Kings – £7.00; and Springbank Community Centre – usual price. These are aimed at my new students but the usual crowd are of course welcome.

Autumn is here

Our half term break is 22/23 October and we return on 29/30 October.

New students will start in January 2020. There are only a few places availble as I have had enquiries aready. Please contact me by phone or by email if you want to join our Tai Chi and Chi Kung classes in the new year.

New Term starts soon

Hi everyone, I hope you have had a good summer. The Summer School went very well, especially the outdoor sessions. I am looking forward to seeing you on 10/11 September to practise more Tai Chi and Chi Kung together. Keep in touch Tai Chi friends. Gillian.

Important News – Wednesday Class

I am sorry but I have to cancel the Charlton Kings class on Wednesday 6th March. There will be only 5 classes up to the Easter break at a cost of £32.50. All the other classes are as advertised on my web-site.

Summer School and Tai Chi in the Park

There will be three Summer School classes for all my students to be held at the Springbank Resource Centre during the summer holidays on Tusedays between 10.30 and 11.30.

The dates are: August 7, 14 & 21.

The cost of the classes £5.00, £3.50 (concs). The prices are low as the adminstrator for the classes is a charity: Hester’s Way Neighbourhood Project.

The Springbank summer classes were a great success last year and I hope will be again this year.

Tai Chi in the Park (outdoors) this year will be at Hatherley Park on the following dates and times:

Wednesday 8 August at 6.30 pm

Wednesday 15 August at 6.30 pm

Wednesday 22 August at 1.30 pm

As Tai Chi in the Park is outdoors it will be dependent on good weather.
