When a class is called “drop-in” it usually means that people can just attend when they like or are able. That tends to mean that the content of the class has to be geared around possibly different people attending each week. Therefore, the content is usually more “general” with each class tending to “stand on its own” rather than being part of some kind of sequence/progression.
So, in that sense these classes aren’t what would generally be called “drop-in”. My aim is to provide a solid foundation in qigong as we progress into the term, and to do this each week builds on the previous week or at least follows the theme of the term.
That doesn’t mean if you miss a week(s) you won’t be able to catch up, but rather that over the course of weeks we are developing our practice and to do that requires continuity and a clear lesson/learning path, which is often not possible from a more obvious “drop-in” structure.
Ideally then, it’s good to commit to the term, in the same way that you would do if you did an evening class in a local college, for example.
But if you know in advance that you are only able to come to a certain amount of classes just let me know – don’t let that stand in the way of coming.
The fees for the classes also reflect these two different ways of attending.
Regular attendees pay in advance for the term and the fee for this is £8.00 per class. For those who just want to drop-in when they can then the fee is £10.00, payable on the night.
