1. Students Terms & Conditions: When you first attend a class with us, you will be given a

full list of terms & conditions with a safety guide before taking part. It is your responsibility to read this, abide by the terms and keep the sheet for future reference.

If you are attending at a leisure or community centre, where you pay the centre for the class, you will need to give your full contact details to the centre and abide by their terms and conditions. In the event of an accident or complaint, this is where you need to go first to register the information with them.

We accept no responsibility for the place allocation or booking systems of our clients. We recommend clarifying the system with the venue you attend. You are the client of the centre you attend and not of Lighthouse Tai Chi®.

Where Lighthouse Tai Chi® take bookings direct, the places are allocated on payment and there is no refund or transfer of fees for non-attendance. A registration form is required which will be given to you at your first class.

The limit on the number of spaces available at each session depends on the size of the room, our student to tutor ratio for safe instruction and the insurance regulations for instructors’ liability. This is also for your safety and the effective delivery of our teaching program.

Our register of names is an attendance record for our insurance purposes and does not means you will be guaranteed a place. We understand that you have registered your participation with the Centre you attend and have provided your name, address and contact phone number. Also, that you have made any required declaration regarding Covid-19 and vaccinations, as requested by the Centre under their terms and conditions.

You must be physically and mentally able to take responsibility for yourself or attend with a responsible carer.

Answer Yes or No to the Following Questions:

1. Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?

2. Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?

3. In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?

4. Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?

5. Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?

6. Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?

7. Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?

If You Answered Yes: If you answered yes to one or more questions, or are older than age 40 and have been inactive, or are concerned about your health, consult a physician before taking part in our classes. 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; it's important to know how this relates to your participation.

Lighthouse instructors cannot give you any medical advice or physiotherapy instruction.

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 our classes 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.
