Tai Chi

I have been teaching and practising the Chinese Arts of Tai Chi and qigong for more than 35 years. I am a qualified master grade instructor for the East-West Taoist Association (EWTA)

Tai chi is a soft martial art used to maintain and improve health and fitness. Its beautiful, flowing movements are a joy to watch and to practise. Modern research shows tai chi to be of benefit to many conditions including high blood pressure, insomnia, arthritis and type 2 diabetes.

Qigong encompasses a wide variety of breathing, and stretching exercises and meditation. In China qigong exercises are often prescribed to aid the patient's recovery to health.

Meditation Classes

Transform your stress into energy.

I run occasional classes in Taoist meditation which you can join as a one off or on a regular basis. This is non-religious meditation based on Chinese medicine principles. The techniques are ideal for emotional balance and self-healing. Small informal groups and lots of tea drinking!

Contact me for a programme of classes.
