Group classes

UPDATE: As of May 2021 and continuing.

STUDIO CLASSES in Borough Market have resumed in line with Government lifting of C-19 restrictions, and some teaching is on-going in local outdoor settings, where suitable and by request.

As the website CONTACT page is currently unresponsive please email
TREASURE@TIMSTUDIO.CO.UK
to make further enquiries or to sign-up for the Newsletter.

Group classes run continuously throughout the year with appropriate short breaks taken around public holidays at Christmas and Easter. In order to sustain and commit to the group, classes are payable by the month in advance, except through August when students may pay as they come. Students may also take up to four weeks ‘out’, as holiday, without paying whilst maintaining their place. Classes are generally held in private studio space at London Bridge by Borough Market.
It should be noted that spaces in group classes are limited by availability.
The Saturday morning class is solely for those with experience and is by invitation only.

Please email TREASURE@TIMSTUDIO.CO.UK to ask for further details and directions.

Biscuits and teas are provided, also sitting cushions.

(only) Suggestions: That you refrain from alcohol in the preceding day. That you prepare for the day by being quiet as you get up and that you should have eaten lightly before we start. That you wear loose clothing (as for a regular Tai Chi class) and bring an additional warm sweater/shawl/socks to put on. That you take steps so as not to need to make (device) contact with those outside for the duration of the day (including during lunch & tea breaks), nor to read newspapers etc. That you are ready to observe silence for the greater part of the day.
(See below for fees/contributions and how to book etc.)
