Online Tai Chi Qigong

Online Tai Chi Qigong

Colleagues talk to each other on the computer screen. Conference video call, working from home.

Join us for our live Zoom sessions online.

This online session will be run alternately by Gina and Jane and is still free to join, but we now ask you to consider making a minimum £7 contribution via the web site or directly to us via BACS. If you have not attended before please register via the website or contact us and we will send you the Zoom link. If you would like to register with us, please complete our form here (mention you wish to register for our Zoom sessions).

Each session is 45 mins - you can also join 15 mins before to setup your camera etc.  

Once registered, you will be invited to join a recurring Zoom session (see details), which you can diary for every week. You can attend as much or little of the session as you wish.

This class led by Jane Launchbury or Gina Davenport.

Voluntary Contributions:

Whilst we will still not be charging for access to any of our online material, we ask that if you can afford to contribute to our costs, you now do so, based on a minimum rate of GB£7 per session. If you can only contribute a little, please feel free to do so as very little appreciation helps.

To make a contribution please visit our Stay Connected! page.

About the Exercises

This class is based on 'Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi', which means 18 movements. With their roots in Tai Chi, these calming and enjoyable movements are very much simpler to follow than the traditional forms but still offer many of the benefits. The flowing movements are usually done to relaxing music, are simple to copy and are repeated with the instructor, so you don't have to remember a lot of instructions and sequence. The movements can help improve balance, flexibility, memory and general well-being through releasing stress and tension.

Using Zoom Meetings

Zoom is free to use - when you receive a meeting invitation by email, you can easily sign in for the session by clicking on the 'Join' link, up to 15 minutes before the lesson start time. You can join a meeting by using any browser, but we recommend you install the app when prompted, as it is more reliable. If you are joining directly from the app or browser, enter in the meeting number and password you were sent, and the email it was sent to. Once connected, you can join in with the class, see all your classmates, ask questions, chat with others as well as us, and many other great features which we can start to use as we get more used to using the new medium.

Tips for video meetings

  • If at all possible always use the meetings app on your computer or device - it’s much more reliable than a browser. 
  • Check your background - try to avoid having strong light behind you. 
  • If you want to be seen clearly (e.g. so we can correct you) use contrasting clothing to your background.
