Classes Re Opening

Dear All

I am very happy to say that some classes will be re-starting from 14th September.

That is unless there is a change in our situation.

Due to Covid (and restricted class sizes) you are now advised to pre-book online.

You can do this on the website standinglikeatree.co.uk

Or to book multiple dates use this link

Please be careful making your choices. Check the class venue, time and date.

You can book more than one date or class at a time.

I suspect the places will fill quite quickly. If this is the case I will look to open further times. Please let me know if you cannot get a place and would like one.

You can still turn up and pay as you go if space is available.

9.30am -Standing Class Lam Form

Tuesdays and Wednesdays Evening Classes

These should reopen from 15/16 September in the new venue. As soon as this is confirmed booking will be available on the website.

New venue- First Floor 55-57 High St Portishead BS20 6AG


Due to small room size;

Monday's class in Clevedon Community Centre will move to the 1st Clevedon Scout Hut at the end of the carpark by the rugby field. Time remains 10.45am.


Wednesday's Searle Court classes are unlikely to reopen.

Other classes are still waiting for confirmation from the venues. If your class is not open yet please feel free to come to a different class.

From 14th September the Youtube classes will continue on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.


The last Wednesday and Thursday Zoom Classes will be 26/27 August.


All classes now have restricted numbers depending on room size. Unfortunately I must increase the cost to £8 per daytime class and £12.50 in the evenings/weekends.


I know some of you are itching to get back whereas others feel more cautious. I have gone through a thorough process to minimise risk for you allowing for the fact that some of you are in the most vulnerable categories. If you would like to see a copy of the Risk Assessment please ask. We will be wearing masks to begin with and see how it goes.

Please do not feel pressured to return unless you feel safe to do so. Our classes serve two important functions, physical and mental health. Tai Chi offers a chance to re-connect socially but at a safe distance.


Looking forward to seeing you all again.


Please pass this information on to other class members you know.

Warm Regards Tony Dove
