Brampton Abbotts class change

As of this week, due to my getting a new job, Brampton Abbotts class will now be held on a Tuesday morning from 10-11.

There are spaces in this class, contact me if you would like to join us.


Summer Fun

Classes have just about finished for the summer now so I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy and peaceful summer.

We start back with Woolaston on 27th August (starting a new form!), Brampton Abbotts on 28th and then Ross on 2nd September.

Keep practicing!


Big Blue Days

Once again we’ve celebrated World Ocean Day (8th June) and Marine Conservation Society’s Big Blue days at LotusLeaf Tai Chi by asking everyone to wear blue.  I then donated £1 of their fee.

Really pleased to say that we raised £37.50 this year which will be swimming it’s way to MCS tomorrow.

Thanks again to everyone who took part

A few reminders, clubs break up for the summer on 22nd, 23rd and 24th July and we are back starting again on 27th and 28th of August for Woolaston and Brampton Abbotts and 2nd September for Ross.

Woolaston and Brampton Abbotts clubs will be starting new forms when they come back; Woolaston will be starting the Chen Man Ch’ing 37 form, while Brampton will be starting the Yang Style 24 form.  New members are welcome, just get in touch.


Sad news for Joys Green club

I am really sorry to say that I am having to close down Joys Green club due to lack of numbers.  This is quite a blow as it was my longest running  but it leaves space for new clubs and new exciting developments.


New Club News!

So as most of my clubs close for the festivities (except Ross that has one more session on 17th to go) a NEW CLUB is born!!!
I shall be starting a beginners class up at Brampton Abbotts, nr Ross on Wye, on Wednesday mornings from 10-11, starting 9th January. We will be starting with a 10 week course which will include various Qigong sets and the Yang Style 6 form. The cost os £4 per student or pay for the whole 10 weeks in advance for £36 (no refunds for non-attendance). Evreyone welcome!
My other clubs will be starting back on 7th and 8th and, as always, are open to new members.


Autumn starting.

Well it’s 1st September which means it’ll soon be time to start classes again. Joys Green and Ross start this Monday (3rd) and Woolaston starts back on 4th.

Hope you’ve all had a great summer, see you in class!

Having a quick play in the Aberglaslyn Pass on our way home.


Big Blue Days

Thank you to everyone who came to sessions last week and helped support the Marine Conservation Society by wearing blue.  We raised a brilliant £45 for this great cause.

Diamond Jubilee Classes

There will not be a class at either Joys Green or Ross on Wye this Monday but there will be a class running at Woolaston on Tuesday.

Don’t forget to wear blue the week after (11th and 12th) and help raise a few pounds for the Marine Conservation Society!


Big Blue Day

In support of Marine Conservation Society’s Big Blue Day on 8th June and World Ocean’s day, if any student wears blue in the week after (11th and 12th June) then I will donate £1 of their class fees to MCS.  Of course any further donations are very welcome.
