Here is a quick summary of all the classes available for New and Returning Students.
Click on the PINK link for additional information for each class. Options 1 through 7 are open to all student levels, including Newbies.
The videos are provided to help students review and practice the tai chi form(s) they are learning. In the case of the Qigong, it allows the student to practice throughout the week.
Why practice? It is important to practice throughout the week so that you gain the full benefits of Tai Chi and Health Preserving and Enhancing Qigong.
The best way is to sign up for the Videos at the time you fully register for your classes. If you forget to sign up for them, or realize you might want them after the first few classes, then you can do so at a later time by going to Autumn Add-Ons. You can sign on to receive the Video Add-Ons at any time. In most cases you will get the opportunity to view them for a week after which they expire.

IN-PERSON COVID POLICIES (as of April 2022)
North Shore Tai-Chi Spirit & Chinese Health Qigong wants to create a safe place for indoor tai chi and qigong group practice. Many of our classes are both In-Person and On-Zoom at the same time.
In accordance with the Provincial Health Authority wearing a mask will be a personal choice at this time. However, we will continue to require that all In-Person students practice social distancing.
If a shut-down to all In-Person classes is mandated by the Provincial Health Authority, then all classes will continue on Zoom. No credit will be given to students unless they do not have adequate access to the Internet.
IN-PERSON OPTIONS FOR ZOOM
Anyone signing up for In-Person classes will always have the option to be on Zoom where that option is available at that location. Some classes do not have the Zoom option.
Any In-Person registration means that you are guaranteed a spot in the class. When and if the need arises: if you are not feeling well , if you are out-of-town, or if you are running late; On-Zoom is an option for you.
