This is where to find out about our classes at beautiful Coughton Court, home of the Throckmorton family since 1409, and gifted by them to the National Trust in 1946.

Our Classes at Coughton Court

This year's summer programme of classes are shared between Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Suitable for beginners and also those with some experience, the classes give beginners an introduction to Tai Chi and the chance to learn a simple and beautiful Tai Chi sequence, while offering more practice and more depth for those with more experience. Classes are taught by a variety of different Instructors from our extensive team, to give you different insights and experiences.

The one hour classes are at 6.30 p.m. on Thursdays, with exclusive access after the public has left, and 11 a.m. on Saturdays, when if you like you can combine your Tai Chi with a visit to the house and gardens, or a stop at the cafe and shop. Take note that the classes are outdoors. We are looking forward, of course, to some glorious summer weather, but don't forget to bring dress accordingly.

Please note that the Coughton Court classes are NOT included in our subscription scheme, which allows our members to attend all our other public Tai Chi classes without any extra charge. There are, however, discounts for LCTKD Teaching Team members from Teaching Assistant up. Check below for details.
