About Me

I have been teaching Tai Chi since1986. 
I studied with a Burmese teacher Khin Thitsa, also with Chungliang Al Huang and thereafter with Richard Farmer founder of RDTC School. I am a fully registered 'S' grade instructor with Tai Chi Union of Great Britain.

My inspiration is the profoundly useful benefit of living Tai Chi.  I am committed to exploration of the principles that invite balance and presence in each moment and enjoy the overall improved health of body, mind and spirit. My genuine love of this art is evident for all to see and to share, with my experienced teaching enabling all people to benefit and reach their potential, regardless of age.

Prior to training to teach Tai Chi in 1984,  I trained in Institutional Management, then worked in hospital administration and later spent time living in Asia and teaching school children.  Upon return to the UK I discovered Tai Chi whilst studying for my degree. During this period I was working as a social worker and house parent at an International school.   I brought up my two children whilst developing a Tai Chi Centre originally in Bridgend/Cowbridge and then in North Wales.  We moved to Monmouthshire in 1994 where I established the current Tai Chi Wisdom group classes and built my dedicated studio.

I teach Tai Chi and applied Tai Chi on a full time basis running regular weekly classes, workshops for organizations, one to one tuition and residential courses.

At other times you may find me enjoying walks in the surrounding hills and mountains. I hold a deep respect for the grace of our natural environment and find inspiration for my practice there.
