COVID19 - Government Lockdowns Again

Posted on March 5, 2021 at 3:55 PM

After over a year of delays and postponement due to the restrictions imposed on society because of a virus, we have been trying to recover the classes and renew the opportunity for people to learn Tai Chi this year. Unfortunely, the recent 5 day lockdown has ultimately resulted in us having to cancel all listed classes.

Tai Chi (and many other activities/ businesses effected by this) is specifically designed to boost your immune system among many other things, so it is clearly counter productive and illogical for authorities to impose restriction that result in the prevention of beneficial activities. Or is it?

If you wish to learn Tai Chi, Chi Gung or Ba Gua, please contact us and we will let you know where you can join us, or our network of friends. Keep an eye out here also as we will now transition to a NFP endeavour, embracing change.


Posted on February 6, 2021 at 3:50 PM

The Tai Toa Foundation is pleased to advise that negotiaions and paperwork have been completed with the respective councils.

Tai Chi Classes are now up and running in Orford (at the Orford Hall - Tuesday and Thursday evenings 06:30pm - 07:30pm) and Avondale Heights (at the Nancye Kirchner Community Centre - Saturdays mornings 07:30am - 08:30am) and will continue at these locations and times.

Classes are $15 pay on day, and 1st lesson is offered free of charge. 

All welcome, bring a friend and see you there!
