Tai chi in a park

Hi, my husband practices and teaches tai chi and qi gong. He'll be relocating to join me in a few weeks. What rules and/or permits are needed to :
(1) practice his own personal tai chi in public parks in Zurich, or
(2) invite uk based tai chi students to practice their tai chi in a public park - say a gathering of around 10-15 people at a time?

Also if people were to approach him for private lessons, would that be frowned upon?

Re: Tai chi in a park

i can't say for zurich- but here in lausanne i often have yoga classes in the park, and i know of a tai chi class that does the same. so far (knock on wood!) no issues and i suppose it depends on the park but it has been quite nice as people see others practicing they often ask and then join in the next time. if he is looking to make it a business, i'm not sure how that would work. i offer classes outside of the park so it is a bit unrelated, but if they were to simply practice as a group, i couldn't see a problem with it. i would say (but, again, i am not speaking from anything but my experience here- in lausanne) to go for it and enjoy the space and if something arises you can deal with it

otherwise, i tend to choose my space in the park that is a bit secluded as it gives a bit more privacy for those practicing.

Re: Tai chi in a park

As he'll get the same permit as you, as a EU national dependent he's fine to work or set up his own business.

I would think he'd need permission to use the park, but you'd need to check that with the city authorities.

Main problem may be communicating with new students if he doesn't speak German. And what would he offer for the UK based student? A holiday type thing complete with accommodation and flights?

Re: Tai chi in a park

ah! i didn't understand that he'd be interested in doing a retreat-type thing. that's really something else, more of a business than a group of people practicing together or private lessons.

Re: Tai chi in a park

a) No problem but you can expect curious kids staring.
b) Nope.
