Frequently Asked Questions

Joining a Class

When you book a class, you will receive an email with login details for the Fully Alive Academy. When you log in you will be able to access the class Zoom link, recordings and other class information.

If you don't see an email, please first check your junk and promotions folders, and add our email address to your contacts.

If you need any help feel free to contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.


Will I have Permanent Access to the Class Recordings?

Yes, you will be able to access any course you buy for as long as the technology is available.

We are currently planning to make the weekly class recordings available online for a year.


What if I Can't Make the Time of a Live Class?

If you can't make a class or course live, you can take it in your own time using the recording and check in with your progress by email as you need to. Feedback from people who have taken courses and classes from recordings is that they get as much out of them as they do from a live class.

"I just wanted to share my experience of participating in the first session of the Art of Cotton Palm course by video after the event. I felt encouraged from the beginning as you reminded us how transmission can work via recording. I then had a very direct experience of transmission during the session.
When listening to your explanation at the start I still had a lingering doubt: if the instructor does not know even who will be in the session, let alone their state at the time of participating, can that person really successfully receive a transmission? My direct experience seemed to answer that question."

What if I'm a New Beginner?

Most of our weekly classes are suitable for complete beginners, as well as for those who have more experience. You start from where you are and progress from there.

If you are new to Qigong, you might like to try our Level One beginners course. You can find out more about Levels 1-4 here.

If you would like some advice as to which class or course might be most suitable for you, please get in touch using the contact form below.


What if I have Physical Restrictions?

If you have physical restrictions or limitations, the exercises can be adapted to suit you. All the exercises can be done sitting down, and you will come from a place of gentleness and listening to your body.


Do I need any Special Equipment?

No, just a computer with access to Zoom, and a room with a bit of space. Around 2 square metres is enough.


What Happens when I Book a Pre-Recorded Course?

The pre-recorded courses are recordings of courses that were originally taught live over a number of weeks.

You will be able to access the whole course through the Fully Alive Academy. You will have permanent access, so you can take the course at your own pace and review the classes at any time.

We suggest that you take a week in between each class to practice and consolidate the learning for that week before moving on to the next class.

If you have questions about anything, you can email and Tim will get back to you. We also encourage you to keep in touch and share your progress by email.


Support Inside and Outside the Class

You are encouraged to share and ask questions within classes, and to email us with anything that comes up for you during your own practice.

If you need extra support, you can book a one-to-one session with Tim.

Are there Discounts?

Yes, there are discounts available if you book more than one class, or if you book a class for three months at a time. Check out all the booking options in the shop.


Can I Change Classes?

Yes, if you join a class and want to switch to a different one after a few weeks, that's fine.


Is it a Recurring Subscription?

No. You pay for classes either every month, every three months or annually, depending on which type of membership you choose. You will receive a payment reminder beforehand, and payment won't be taken automatically.


How long can I access the class recordings for?

We are currently planning to make the weekly class recordings available online for a year. You will be able to access them through the Fully Alive Academy during that time, even if you are no longer joining the live class.
