Our end of term park lesson will be held on Sunday 1 December, 2019 at Central Park, Central Park Road, East Malvern from 10.00am to 12.00 midday.

Park Lesson

These park sessions are often the most rewarding lessons of the term as they are particularly designed for you to meet students from other classes who have the same interest in Tai Chi as you do.

All are very welcome to attend to enjoy 2 hours of Tai Chi and Health Qi Gong in a beautiful park setting. Please be sure to wear your TCA T-shirt!

If it is raining (i.e. pouring), please do not come and we will organise something else another day. Your Instructor will keep you informed.

Term 4 ends Saturday 14 December. Please check the TCA website for any unavoidable changes and details of forthcoming events.
