Timetable & Bookings
NEWS: IN VENUE and ONLINE CLASSES Starting back on 3 DECEMBER
Our London classes start back in venue, at St Paul’s in Camden Square and the Islington Chinese Association, with live Zoom online according to the timetable/schedule below, on 3 December.
Please book and pay for all your weekly Tai Ji Circle classes with Shifu Liu and Chris below, with an online or in venue option, as a TJC member or non-member, (non-members are limited to 8 classes in Venue and 15 classes Online).
We can no longer accept cash or drop-ins at our venues, and as numbers are limited all classes must be pre-booked here.
Membership is £40 for Term Three, from 6 September to 18 December 2020, and makes a big saving on classes and workshop costs. Then pay as a Member when booking, either by Single Class or with Class Pass credits option to save on costs (when selected it will deduct classes booked automatically).
On the Schedule timetable classes are listed as ‘In Venue’ or ‘Online’. With either payment you can also use your Pass credits to book ‘Online’ or ‘In Venue’ classes.
Class Passes (8, 15 or 30 credits) you can book in all the classes you may want to take, or just a few at a time, and the system will know when you have used them up automatically. If you cannot make a class you can transfer it to another time or date, only before the class takes place.
When booking it will be best to set up an account with an email and a password to make class bookings, so that you can sign-in later to see your booking confirmation, classes and payments. Your email address is used to identify you when booking with a pass. With Online Class booking click on the class online link to add it to your calendar and see the joining class Zoom link. An email reminder is sent out for your classes with the online link to join Zoom. (Please email Chris if any problems)
Ticket fees for ‘In Venue’ or ‘Online’ classes are listed by Member or Non-Member. All ticket/pass payments are processed through Paypal and you don’t have to have a PayPal account, you can pay by credit card. When you have paid you will receive an email with class details and a separate PayPal email receipt for your records.
First click/highlight the class you want to attend and then you will see the class details and price options, click on the Single payment option or Passes to select credits for cheaper class fees. When buying a Pass you must book at least one class at the same time.
NHS workers, carers can attend ‘online’ classes for free, please contact Chris for links. Overseas students can have a discount and book ‘Online’ classes paying the Members fee, or Shifu Liu’s morning classes for free.
Chen Taiji Beginner students who wish to pay for the Foundation Course Classes should buy an 8 class non-members pass, and email Chris your intended start date. Those people valid for a concessionary rate can buy their pass at the Members rate (see the Beginners Course page for all details). We will send you information and the online links.
