Barbara Shields - Liverpool Region: North

Barbara Shields Tai Ji Qi Gong School

I am blessed to continue my personal training with the most exceptional of teachers Masters Faye and Tary Yip, the British Health Qi Gong Association and the Chinese health Qi Gong Association. I trust also that personal training and my trips to China inform my own teaching abilities directly benefiting my students. the last few years I have had the privilege of training under master Chen Xiao Wang on his annual visits to Liverpool, supported by Master Kam Lau. I am training primarily in the double dao form with Master Chen.
I am grade A instructor with the TCUGB and qualified instructor in 4 systems with the BHQA.

I teach Yang 24 Simplified Tai Chi Quan and Yang solo Fan Form
I also teach a broad range of Qi Gong: Shiba Shi, Yi Jin Jing, 12 Dao Yin Yang Shen Gong, Tai Ji Yang Sheng Zhang [stick form]
Ba Duan Jin and Shi Er Duan JIn. I am available to teach seated Qi Gong if required.
I am increasingly teaching standing, Zhang Zhong and meditation using mindfulness techniques.
My desire and intention in teaching is to show my students the way to take charge of their health and mental well being and of course to share my passion for martial arts and weapons training.
Most of my students come to me at first suffering stress and illness, I therefore use a lot of Qi Gong in my sessions to help individuals to restore their strength and flexibility. Then I emphasise the principles of Tai Ji Quan using the Beijing 24 form as the vehicle for practising the essential properties of Tai Chi.
I emphasise that my classes are for learning forms which I then hope my students will take to practise on a daily basis, this is the key to success!

I teach in various venues NWC, MDI, The Florrie, St Mary's, The Women's Organisation and retreats in N.Wales.
My regular classes are held at the National WIld Flower Centre in Court Hey Park a beautiful place to train with lots of outdoor practise and the Merseyside Dance Initiative in the centre of Liverpool, a beautiful dance studio.
I teach private groups and individuals and I am planning new events for the future, look out for my Summer school special workshops 2014.
