I have been notified that classes can re-start in the Shefford Community Hall starting May 17th  at 2.30 – there will then be no class on Thursday 20th but I am teaching at the Swiss Garden @ 10.00 ( please book with them ) – there will be a class on Sunday 23 at 6.30 then we can continue with regular weekly classes on Monday 2.30, Thursday 2.30 and Sunday 6.30pm

I look forward to seeing old friends!

All my best regards


Tai Chi class at the Swiss Garden

I am delighted to be teaching again in the Swiss Garden at Shuttleworth this summer – please see their website for further information and for bookings.

Shefford group Tai Chi

Given our “Road Map” out of Covid it seems possible, probably/maybe! to run our annual Belsey Bridge Tai Chi residential weekend this year. Fortunately, I have carried over our booking from last year covering Friday 10th to Sunday 12th September and would like to invite bookings, subject to Covid restrictions of course.

The format will be the same loose arrangement as previously with a basic program for everyone and specialist sessions to meet individual needs.

Cost as previously will be £320 pp for teaching over the weekend with full board and en-suite accommodation.

Please let me know if you would like to come.

Given the recent news of Covid restriction changes to come into effect on March 29 ( which do not seem to be conditioned at this point), I am planning, albeit tentatively, to restart group classes in the park at the STMA from Monday 29th as follows:

Monday at 10.00 am

Thursday at 10.00 am

Sunday at 10.00am

As before these will be free of charge, at least initially, to get us started back into group practice, although this may change.

The “Rule of Six” will of course apply until the government changes it and will be managed on a “first come, first served” basis.
