In-studio classes classes resume after a holiday break on Monday, January 3, 2022.
The school continues to offer in-studio classes at limited capacity, with all participants required to wear masks — as of January 2022, students are required to wear N95 or KN95 masks, due to the Omicron-driven surge in COVID cases. 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, Winter 2022
You must apply via an online form for the in-studio classes in which you wish to participate. The application period begins on Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 8:00 am (the form will begin accepting responses at that time, but not before). Applications for places in Winter Session classes will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to applications received in the first week of the application period; applicants submitting the form after Thursday December 16, 2021 @ 8:00am PST will be registered for classes in which places remain open after the first week’s applications have been processed.
NO WALK-IN CLASSES are offered at this time; 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.
Advanced students: Please note that 3 of the Winter Session’s Saturday classes will be held on Zoom, not in the studio: January 29, February 26, and March 26, 2022; 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.
