Authentic Taiji teachings handed down in an unbroken chain.


Deep Body -  Deep Emotions - Deep Mind

Inner Development starts via the the deep body intelligence 

  • Deep breathing -  oxygenates the body and brain

  • Waves of movement  - massage the lymphatic system

  • Energizing the nervous system - increases neuromuscular control

Escape the internal chatter & stress stimulated by the outer roughness of the world

Plunge the fire of the mind into the waters of the body to

create a balance in Body, Emotions & Mind.


Each class we begin by closing down the everyday 'chattering' mind and

then awaken the deeper mind by listening into the deep body sensations

using the 5 inner senses
