Kate Dixon - Okehampton area, Devon Region: South & West

Tuesdays - Church House, South Tawton, EX20 2LQ
Wednesdays - Fairplace Church, Okehampton, EX20 1DN

These classes will include qigong exercises and learning the Tai Chi form, with emphasis on 5 basic principles of freeing, aligning, focusing, sensing and being, developed by Living Movement. Everyone is welcome to the classes.

I started practicing Tai Chi in February 2010. I started by learning the Qigong exercises and the Cheng Man Ching style short form. I now also practice the long form, san shou, sword form and pushing hands. I trained and am still training with Living Movement.

Since qualifying in January 2014, I have been teaching qigong to mental health in patients at Wonford hospital and also providing cover for classes and workshops run by other teachers. I am now starting my own classes - see above.

My past career has also involved teaching. I have 25 years experience teaching nature awareness, forest school, and survival skills/personal healing as a Countryside Ranger and wilderness camp leader.

I am interested in practicing Tai Chi in natural places, particularly on the moors, in forests and beside rivers where I live and through this practice, exploring ways of becoming more connected with myself, other people and with nature. I plan to offer events to share this learning with others. I am also involved in a project to offer Tai Chi in schools.

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.

Karen White - Brighton Region: London/S.East

I teach qi gong and tai chi classes at Hanover Community Centre Brighton BN2 9UD on Wednesday evenings 7.15-8.15 pm
I teach qi gong on Thursdays evenings at Brighton Natural Health Centre Brighton BN1 1UL
I also teach 1:1 and small groups
I have practised Tai Chi and Qi Gong since 1989. I started with Yang Style Tai Chi and was later introduced to the Wu Style Short Form through my teacher in Brighton - Brian Cooper. I am a qualified instructor in the Dragon and Tiger Level 1 and Opening the Energy Gate of the Body Level 1 Qi Gong sets and Short Form Wu style Tai Chi Level 2 in the Energy Arts system.
Through teaching Qi Gong and Tai Chi my aim is to get people connected to their bodies and drop their energy from their heads and enable them to relax and develop better energy flows. This is done in a relaxed and gentle way - the movements are aimed to build strength, endurance and co-ordination. Practices that through relaxed movement create more stamina, reducing tension which eats stamina. My classes are suitable for all people with different levels of physical ability, above the age of 16 years.
