A certiﬁed instructor delivers classes, demos, private tuition and workshops. They are open to any suitable person, provided they are medically ﬁt, are independently mobile and can participate without assistance in the class. Any participant who has any doubt whether they are medically ﬁt to attend the given event(s) is required to have medical clearance from their doctor before commencing. In terms of physical exertion, the tai chi or qigong exercises in this program would be similar to walking.
Classes usually last for one hour. Participants are encouraged to have a rest in between if needed, and always work within their comfort zone. Participants are required to do a gentle warm-up exercise at the beginning of class and cool-down exercise at the end. I understand I must wear suitable trainer-like shoes to practice Tai Chi & Qi Gong.
