UPDATED: November 17, 2023
First-time Drop-Ins are welcome anytime in our Qigong classes as no previous experience is necessary. These classes are perfect for Newbies as detailed instructions are always provided. Dropping in once is great to give you a sense of what is being taught and how it is being taught. It is always best to consider purchasing a 4 pack because then you’ll get a chance to really experience how each class is different and yet complementary.
Long-time students of Health Qigong, some with over 15 years of experience with our Community, tell us they love the variety practiced. That’s why they keep coming! You can check out our testimonials here: TESTIMONIALS
The following classes will be available for Health Qigong Drop-Ins in 2023 and 2024. Please click on the link for more details:
If you want to drop into a Tai Chi, it is always best to do so within the first month of classes of the start of the class. After that, then you might miss important “basics” that Newbies will find it important to learn. With that said, contact us as there are options for getting you up-to-speed on classes you have missed. We’ll help you get started!
Currently, most Tai Chi classes that started in September are now closed to new students. However, there is one currently available for you to join if you have experience in the 24 form.
It is our Thursday morning 9am class at St. Andrews St. Stephens Presbyterian Church (SASS). This class will take a December break after December 7th and will resume January 11th. It will finish January 25th. You can find out more information about that class here: SASS 24 form
There will remain a few Drop-In options starting in February 2024 for Newbies or Long-timers due to the fact that many of the tai chi classes from September – December 2023 are still on-going.
Drop-Ins for Newbies and Long-timers will be available starting February 1st, 2024. This will be updated soon. Stay Tuned!
