We meet at Lloyd Park every Sunday, in the spring/summer (April to October) outdoors on Aveling Fields near the green gym area, weather permitting, 10am – 11am.
During the autumn/winter (October to March) we move indoors in the Forest Community Theatre Hall, 59 Guildford Road
Walthamstow E17 4EA (map) The hall has parking and is on bus routes 212, W16 and 275. If on foot, there’s a ramp by the mini roundabout where Hale End Road meets Wadham Road. The hall is slightly hidden as is lower than the road at that point. Driving – enter by Cobham Road along Hale End Road (look for a corner shop) and then turn into Guildford Road.
The cost is £25 per month, which gives access to all classes, or £7 drop-in. For full details, please see join Dao Lu.
Clothing – flexible and weather-appropriate. Our uniform is a Dao Lu T-shirt (white or red) and black jogging trousers (or similar), if possible. This is also required for performance or grading.
Footwear – plimsolls or lightweight trainers.
Here’s a couple of videos of us doing “first form” (once in lines, once as a circle):
This class was originally “Senior Tai Chi Corner” – for persons of 50 years and above, of all abilities. This community project was the winner of Waltham Forest Physical Activity and Health Project Award 2013. You can read more about the award here.
