Taster Workshops in Salisbury
Longwater teacher Jane Launchbury runs regular taster workshops for beginners at Neals Yard Remedies (www.nealsyardremedies.com) in Salisbury. The workshops are 2 hours long and only cost £20, designed to you a real flavour of how Tai Chi and Qigong works and can radically benefit your heath and wellbeing.
For more information visit our beginners page: http://www.longwatertaichi.co.uk/beginners (scroll down to bottom of page)
Cost £20 per workshop
Booking is essential as places are very limited.
Student Practice Sessions
Our students are so into their studies that they have origanised their own practice sessions, usually held every last Sunday of the month in the Downton Memorial Hall. A small contribution towards the rent is all that's asked for, and you are free to practise whichever discipline you choose. It is a chance to clarify those bits you are unsure of with other students, practise what you know, explore recently acquired skills and chat to Tai Chi friends over a cup of tea.
Current booked dates are:
Sun 31st May 10-12 Memorial Hall
Sun 31st May 12-1pm Memorial Hall (Circling Hands)
Sun 2nd July 10-12 Memorial Hall
