Tai Chi Chuan is normally learned in groups and I teach classes in Hebden Bridge, Bacup and Burnley (see right).  Individual lessons can also be arranged in Bacup on request.

I am fully insured as an instructor member of the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain.

A typical lesson includes specific warm-up exercises designed to improve balance and co-ordination and provide a foundation for learning the Cheng Man Ching solo form. A set of Qigong (internal energy exercises) are also included to promote relaxation, better breathing and circulation.

The solo form is learned slowly and steadily, posture by posture, with the emphasis on relaxation and correct body alignment.  Martial understanding and applications are also learned in a safe environment with emphasis on relaxation and on one’s own alignment and balance.

Sword forms and Two-Person forms of Tai Chi are also offered to those wishing to learn.


“The purpose of today's training is to defeat
yesterday's understanding”

16th CENTURY SWORDSMAN


Tai Chi is an art which can be practised and polished for the whole of a student’s life, so there is no great pressure to learn it all before it’s too late!   This understanding, in turn, results in a reduction of stress and tension which actually enables the student to learn faster.

My aim is to help all students to feel the benefit of learning to relax and to ‘do less’, and in so doing, enjoy the beautifully balanced, graceful movements of Tai Chi that promote greater awareness of the self and improve our well-being.
