If You Answered Yes

If you answered yes to one or more questions, are older than age 40 and have been inactive or are concerned about your health, consult a physician before taking a fitness test or substantially increasing your physical activity. You should ask for a medical clearance along with information about specific exercise limitations you may have.

Get Your Doctor's Clearance:  If you have any injuries, illnesses or conditions, or are on any medications, talk to your doctor to make sure it's okay to exercise. Some medications may affect your heart rate, and it's important to know how that may relate to your participation.

Covid-19 Declaration & Waiver

To participate in classes with Lighthouse Tai Chi we require a signed and dated declaration and waiver in regard to Covid 19 / Corona Virus.

What to wear

Shoes: thin soled sports shoes without strong grip on the bottom; such as standard pumps or plimsolls that are clean and comfortable. Boots, outdoor shoes and shoes with heels are not allowed. Trainers and running shoes will affect your balance, foot sensitivity and create pull on the joints. We accept no liability for any injury caused by inappropriate footwear.

Clothing: Clothes should be clean and comfortable, that allow you to move freely without tangling your limbs or body. Due to the nature of the movements and the instructors needing to see your posture clearly, skirts and dresses are not appropriate. Trousers, leggings or shorts with a t-shirt or sweatshirt are recommended. We accept no liability for any injury or damage caused by inappropriate clothing.

Jewellery: Dangly necklaces, bracelets and earrings may catch in your clothes or interfere with your movement. We accept no liability for damage or loss to personal items.

Please avoid the use of strong fragrances and be aware of your personal hygiene.

Behaviour: students are responsible for their own behaviour. Disrupting the session or preventing others from learning or enjoying the session is anti-social behaviour and the student will be asked to leave. Students are expected to learn tai chi with people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and cultures.

It is never acceptable to make another student or the instructors feel uncomfortable or unwelcome. This will result in a ban from the classes, seminars and events.

Bans are also enforced if a student is intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, commits an illegal act whilst attending a class, behaves in an abusive, violent or threatening manner towards the tutor, other staff or any other student at any time; disrupts the classes or causes any injury to others or damage to the premises or equipment
