Tai Chi has been a major part of my life over the past twenty years, and once I discovered the benefits of a Tai Chi practice I was hooked. I began studying with Alan Peck at The Natural Way Tai Chi School in 1990 and within a year I was deeply involved in my practice and began teaching for the school.
This was an incredibly exciting time as I discovered new ideas, philosophies, and began to explore deeper levels of relaxation, I’m happy to say the journey for me is still in full swing and I’m ever more fascinated. I’ve been lucky enough to teach many Tai Chi classes over the years and to pass on the benefits I’ve discovered including relaxation, softness, vitality and inner strength.
I have also managed to study with various incredible Tai Chi Masters, such as Dr Shen Hongxun and Shen Jin as well as Wee Ki Jin and Chen Xiao Wang. I even got to embark on early morning Tai Chi sessions in the parks of Shanghai when I travelled to China to study Chinese Massage.
