In-studio classes classes resumed in the school’s Fall Session without a break: Summer Session ended on Sunday Sept 26th; Fall Session began Monday Sept 27th, 2021.
The school continues to offer in-studio classes at limited capacity (modestly increased in the Fall), with all participants required to wear masks. All in-studio participants must be fully vaccinated (including the two-week waiting period after your final vaccine dose) BEFORE your first in-studio class.
All in-studio participants must be pre-registered for any classes they attend; the application process for limited places in the school’s in-studio classes is described below.
In-Studio Application Process, Fall 2021
UPDATE: As of November 1, 2021, enrollment is limited to returning students; new students are welcome to join the school in early January, at the start of Winter Session (details forthcoming in late November). For returning students, the Saturday Level IV/V class is nearly full; Monday’s Level IV/V class has a small number of places remaining; and there’s space available in the Level I, II, and III classes. Please write to TaiChiBerkeley@gmail.com if you are interested in rejoining mid-session.
You must apply via an online form for the in-studio classes in which you wish to participate.
NO WALK-IN CLASSES are offered for Fall Session; please do NOT attend in-studio classes unless your application has been accepted/confirmed. This process is necessary to assure that we keep classes consistent with public health guidelines regarding limited capacity in the Western Sky (8th St.) studio space.
Applications for places in Fall Session classes will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Note that 3 of the Fall Session’s Saturday classes will be held on Zoom, not in the studio: October 30, November 20, and December 18, 2021; all registered Saturday in-studio students will be provided the Zoom links for these sessions, there is no need to fill out the Zoom classes registration form unless you plan to take additional Zoom classes.
Should you need to withdraw your application, please e-mail TaiChiBerkeley@gmail.com ASAP, so your place can be offered to another student.
If you have questions about this process, please write to TaiChiBerkeley@gmail.com.
