I am so glad you came for a visit, have you seen some of my free youtube videos? Tai Chi 5 minutes a day? Would you also like to practice with me live? Your fist step is to sign up to a 20 minute flow class to see how the whole system works. You will recieve a link on the welcome page that you must save somewhere for future use. You have a look at the times and see if there is a class in your time zone that will work for you. If your time zone isn't listed you will have to convert it with the world clock. 5 minutes before the class begins you can login to the virtual classroom and we can meet and practice together. In the flow class you will learn easy movements like in my videos but for 20 minutes and this way you can build strength by practicing for longer.
If you would like to learn about the correct postures and traditional Tai Chi, you can purchase 12 videos where I will teach you the basics of Wudang style Tai Chi. In these videos you will learn the how to maintain position your body so that the Chi can flow while you practice. You will also learn the basic 28 movement form that comes from Wudang China learn sequencews of movements from that form.
Achieve harmony and balance through movement.
Because I have a long background in figure skating and dance I was able to pick up Tai Chi easily. I have been practicing Yang style Tai Chi since 2006 when I started by learning a 64 movement form. I practiced with a teacher 3 times a week and then I practiced at home every other day because as an athlete I know that a personal practice is how you excel in any sport. It took me 2 years to learn that form well. Then I went to train intensively, for two years, in a Traditional Martial Arts Academy in Wudang China. Here I learned a whole new style of Tai Chi that I found enchanting and in the two years I trained there I learned a handful of Tai Chi forms, sword forms, Qigong forms and I even got so strong that I started to learn Kung fu forms. I have been certified to teach almost all of them by my Chinese Master Yuan Xiu Gang.
There has been a powerful transformation in my life because of my daily Qigong and Taiji practice and I would like to share these benefits with you. I offer you this website as a place to train and to embark on the journey of learning what Taiji has to teach us about ourselves, life, health, and the world around us. I look forward to seeing you in class.
“Thank you again for this morning. It was excellent. I came away from the session again feeling like I had achieved something worthwhile. I am enjoying them immensely. Will return next Friday. Regards ”
“I am thrilled to hear that you are planning to film more online courses. As a complete novice and a rather unfit middle aged person it is going to take me a while to progress however I am practising every day for 30 minutes to one hour. Your videos are very good for working on posture and the best that I have found in that regard. Also the gradual pace and the way you break things down makes it easy to follow and gain confidence day by day. I will book an online lesson as soon as I gain a little more coordination with the hand and leg movements.Keep up the great work. All the Best ”
"We love your videos and are working our way through them slowly. We found you on YouTube about 6 months ago and practice daily. Our success is measured in the improvement in balance and flexibility. My right foot is welded together in three spots so I was unable to balance on one foot when we began. I remember telling Gale that I would not be able to do the exercises. I can now do so and my flexibility has greatly improved."
