My passion is to inspire people and give them tools to create their own wellness, and for me to discover and learn new ways to help people do this. My tai chi & qigong journey began in 1999 for health reasons. My personal journey to wellness inspired me to want to learn, share and help others.
I am an international Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI) Master Trainer authorised to train and qualify TCHI instructors for the following programmes: Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention (including TCA Part 2), Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis; Tai Chi for Rehabilitation, Tai Chi for Diabetes, Tai Chi for Life, Qigong for Health and Tai Chi for Energy.
Tai Chi for Health programs are different from other tai chi, as they are scientifically proven to be effective for health and well-being and endorsed by the CDC.
I also teach 13 community tai chi classes in Franklin District south of Auckland.
I’m on the Executive Committee for two non-profit organisations; national Tai Chi for Health Community NZ Inc. and Franklin Health Group Inc.
