Enrol for live online Term 4 classes

Hi Everyone,

As you are aware the Victorian Government has released the Roadmap that Victoria will follow over the next few months in easing restrictions to COVID-19. Based on the current situation, TCA has no choice but to continue our classes in Zoom for the rest of this year.

In the last two terms our Zoom classes have been well received and many TCA students and Beginners have joined me learning, revising and practicing Tai Chi and Health Qigong. This practice has helped everybody, physically and mentally to cope with the stress associated with the COVID19 lockdown.

However, those of you who have not been able to join me, I strongly recommend you access the internet and try the first week free of charge to see how you feel about Zooming with us. It is clear that there will be no face to face classes until Term 1 2021, and that is 4 months away. Whether we will be able to resume our face to face classes then, will be subject to further health advice. TCA hopes the situation will improve to that point.

We acknowledge many people are still unfamiliar with digital technology and we are happy to support you if you need it. Please contact us and we will help you.

Please note the followings:

  1. TCA Zoom class conditions and safety tips are at the end of this email. Please read, understand and accept these conditions before joining our Zoom classes.
  2. Please work within your own ability when performing exercises.
  3. Video recording of the class is not permitted without the explicit written permission of TCA.

We are isolated at home and it is imperative that your most precious assets, your health and wellbeing, are maintained and strengthened. TCA is committed to delivering high quality teaching and learning in the online environment.  We acknowledge that although teaching and learning will be different, every effort is being made to provide a program that will challenge all students whilst being positive and supported.

We will start Term 4 live on-line teaching using Zoom from next Monday 5 October, 2020.

For those of you who would like to continue in term 4 the fee will be the same, $160 (non-refundable) for the term ending Saturday 13 December. This fee can be transferred directly into TCA bank account as follows.

Bank Name:      CBA  
Branch:              Camberwell
BSB:                  063 113
A/C No:             1050 8289
A/C Name:        Tai Chi Australia Pty Ltd

Once you have enrolled for the term, you can access all classes each day to keep you fit and healthy. These revision classes are an excellent opportunity to revise Forms you have learned or to learn a Form in great detail from the Beginning again.

Before you join the classes, due to time limitation, I would like you all to do your own warm ups by yourselves for between 10 and 15 minutes as this will allow us to mainly focus on the form at each particular time slot.


Below is the online schedule for the classes for Term 4 starting Monday 5th October 2020 and ending Saturday 12th December 2020.

PLEASE NOTE for each link below you only need to register once for ALL sessions of that form. Then you need to select all the days you will attend that form. If you are unsure select all the dates available, if you have any concerns please email us at and we will do everything we can to assist.

You will receive ONE email for each form you register for – the details in that email will work for ALL sessions of that form.

TCA Zoom class conditions and safety tips

Enjoy our online programs safely with these tips

  • Seek medical advice from your doctor to ensure it is safe for you to undertake new or different exercises.
  • Start off slowly and go at your own pace.
  • Create your safe space; this should be free of hazards which may cause you to trip or fall.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and supportive footwear.
  • Take regular breaks when you need, to avoid overdoing it.
  • Have a sturdy chair close by for help with balance and stability.
  • Stay hydrated, drink plenty of water.
  • Give yourself plenty of rest between classes and enjoy a range of exercises.

By participating in our Zoom classes, you acknowledge:

  • There are inherent risks associated with exercise and you participate at your own risk.
  • Tai Chi Australia (including instructors, agents, employees, contractors and volunteers) is not liable for any injury, loss, damage or death caused to you or your property whether by negligence, omission or any other way.
  • During a Zoom class the instructor is unable to watch you individually and you take responsibility for knowing your own limitations and ability.
  • You will discuss health related concerns with your GP and seek medical clearance or advice in advance of undertaking physical exercise.

If you have chronic illnesses (such as severe arthritis, osteoporosis or advanced cardiovascular disease) it is best to consult closely with your doctor, physiotherapist or healthcare professional to determine the safest exercises for you.
