St Marks Hall, Guildford Rd East, (North Camp) Farnborough GU14 6PX
Tai Chi 24 Form for Beginners
Foundation exercises, principles and techniques of Tai Chi and Qigong, building week by week.
Finding our venue (Taken from St Mark's website)
St. Mark's Church Hall can be found in Guildford Road East at its junction with Alexandra Road, opposite the Church on the other side of the roundabout.
TO FIND THE CHURCH HALL:
If using a satnav use postcode GU14 6PX - this is the postcode for the nearest house (57 Guildford Rd East). When you reach the Alexandra Road roundabout mentioned above you will see that Guildford Road East is blocked by a "No Entry" sign. So, turn into Reading Road, keeping the church building on your right-hand-side as you go past it. Shortly, turn left into Oxford Road, then at its end, another left into Church Circle, and immediately another left into Guildford Road East. The Hall is at the far end, on the right-hand-side. To exit back onto Alexandra Road (the main road), you can re-join the roundabout with ease as the "No Entry" does not apply from this direction.
The hall is light, airy and spacious with a tranquil feel, perfect for learning Tai Chi.

Thursdays 12.30 - 1.30pm from 9th September 2021
Canal Visitors' Centre function room, Mytchett GU16 6DD
Seated Qigong Exercise, Mindfulness and Meditation for All
The entrance to the Canal Visitors Centre is opposite Potters Lodges on Mytchett Place Rd. Keep left as you drive in and the lar park will be ahead of you.
We are in the long low building straight ahead of you, enter via the first door (toilets/ showers) on the left side of the building, facing the canal, and then take the very first door on the left again.
This class will cover Health Qigong and Shaolin Yoga exercises seated on a chair. Occasionally we practice a little acupressure self massage. We finish with about 15 minutes of guided Meditation / visualisation. No equipment needed but you may wish to bring a cushion and/ or a wrap for cooler days. Chairs are provided.
There is more information about the class on the Meditation Class page

Invincible Rd, GU14 7QU.
If you're travelling from the B&Q / Morrisons roundabout direction you'll find us on the right about half way down Invincible road, just after Toolstation. There's a small Yoga pavement sign outside.

In the past a lot of people asked us to save them a place and then just didn't bother to turn up. This resulted in us running half empty classes,. For this reason we no longer offer pay on the day classes and payment is 'a month in advance' .
To confirm your spot in the class payment for the first month / part month (if applicable) must be paid up front. We may offer to provisionally reserve a place for you before payment is made, giving you 3 days to confirm the place by making payment. If payment isn't received after 3 days then the place will be released to the next enquirer.
If you change your mind about attending our classes BEFORE your first block of classes starts AND you give us at least 14 days notice, we will refund you in full. If you give less than 14 days notice but at least 7 days, we will refund 50% of the fee you paid. Cancellations with less than 7 days notice are non refundable. This is because, at the time you booked we allocated that place for you and it was no longer available for anyone else to book. If you change your mind and leave mid-month then no refund of fees is applicable.
The place you have in the class is yours for as long as you wish to continue, provided you continue to pay the class fee for each month within the allocated time (usually by the penultimate week of the current month) We will send you an email with a payment link giving you one full week to 'checkout'. If you don't re-book by that time then your place is released to others who may want to join the class. If you don't want to continue then please let us know.
We stop classes for all local council school holidays. You can also take one month of the year as a month off (for a holiday for example) and we will keep your place in the class provided you have pre-paid for the month following your return. The terms applying to 'reserving a place' above apply in this instance.
If you need time off following surgery / prolonged illness then, provided you let us know at that time, your class credits will be frozen until your return.
The place you have in the class is yours and yours alone, so when you take days off here and there the fee for that class is still applicable. Therefore please prioritise your tai Chi class and arrange other events around it. If possible (if another suitable class is available) we will offer you a different day that week so you don't miss out, but this isn't guaranteed. Please ask us if you'd like this option if you know you have to miss a class.
