I began my Tai Chi studies in 1984 with Dr. John Kells of the British T'ai Chi Ch'uan Association. 

I have practised ever since and began teaching professionally in 1989. 

SanSou Practice

I have taught at, trained and provided teachers for various fitness and leisure centres, corporate clients and other organisations. Whilst studying Acupuncture at the

  College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading in 1994,

  I met Dr. Shen Hongxun, founder of the Buqi Institute

an organisation dedicated to bringing eastern knowledge to the west.

Born in Shanghai in 1939, Dr. Shen began his Taiji study aged 9, and was the epitome of authentic Taijiquan, a living conduit to a past age, possessed of skills, knowledge and abilities far beyond the abilities of the modern generation of self styled famous teachers and "masters".

I subsequently left Acupuncture college to study his teachings in Taijiquan, Taijiwuxigong, Wuxi Meditation and Buqi, a Taiji based Energetic Healing system of which I have been a qualified practitioner for several years.

At his request we formed the HeavenMountain Taijiquan College in 1996. Despite his passing I continue to study, develop and teach Taiji, TaijiWuxiGong, Meditation, Qigong and Buqi Healing.

I am currently enjoying my 36th year of practising Taiji. 

Classes run throughout the year and there is a substantial programme of classes, courses, workshops and seminars both in this country and abroad in association with the Buqi Institute
