Meditation and tai chi classes

This page has information about local meditation and tai chi classes. Last updated 21st Jan 2017.

I strongly advise contacting the teacher before turning up for the first time in case the following information has changed. Teachers sometimes have to cancel the odd week here and there. There may also be changes which I don’t know about.
