Class confirmation or cancellation
In case of (very) inclement weather, classes may be cancelled. This will be flagged by an amber sign at the top of this page saying “class cancelled”. If you see a green sign saying “class confirmed”, classes are confirmed even in bad weather.
The sign is updated as early as possible in case of a cancellation, but please check it before you leave to class.
Tea and Practice meetings
Please check the sign at the top of this page for the next date. Meetings are always from 5 to 7 pm, at the Tanglewood Hillsdale Community Association, at 30 Woodfield Drive, Nepean.
We usually meet on the fourth Friday of each month to practice 30 to 40 minutes, and then have some green tea and chat. This isn’t a class and there is no fee to attend, we just split the room rental. All my students and ex-students are invited, regardless of where and when we practiced together, and of knowledge. The goal is to get together and have a good time. Practice will be the first 15 postures of Laojia Yilu, up to the third Jing Gang Dao Dui. These postures are simple enough for anyone to follow.
I will bring green tea regularly, sometimes i’ll bake something too. You are welcome to bring whatever you’d like to share over tea time.
