Dr. Dong Liu Barraclough - Liverpool Region: North

University of Liverpool

Dong was born in China and started practising Tai Chi in China in 1987 until 1995 when she went abroad to pursue her academic career. She has interest in research to identify effective prevention and treatment tools for age-related chronic diseases.
Sedentary lifestyles are increasingly believed to contribute to long term chronic diseases. Health Qigong/Tai Chi exercises consist of coordinated slow flowing body postures/movements, controlled deep breathing and calm mind. The routine movements are designed to improve body strength, flexibility and balance. This type of exercise is very safe and the movements are easy to learn and to practise. Importantly, the gentle, flexible nature of the exercises makes Qigong/Tai Chi particularly suitable for physically inactive individuals and older people. Furthermore, the exercises can be adapted easily for disabled/wheelchair individuals. Simplified health Qigong/Tai Chi exercises have become part of daily routine amongst millions of elderly men and women across China. It is time to introduce these exercises to the UK.
Dong has trained with the Deyin Taijiquan Institute and British Health Qigong Association. She is now qualified to teach Tai Chi and health Qigong.
If you are interested in learning / practising Tai Chi or health Qigong as a group or one-to-one private lessons, please contact Dong.

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.

Before looking for a teacher think about why you are attracted to tai chi, and what you hope to gain from it, are you just looking for the health aspects, working with soft exercises, meditation and relaxation techniques or are you interested in the full system including hard training, partner work, self defence and weapon forms.

Once you have decided what you want then you can email or telephone a few instructors close to you with your ideas, they’ll be pleased to advise you. Feel free to ask if you can visit a class to see how the class is run and whether the approach meets your expectations.

We have introduced a grading system as this gives people some indication of the level of experience of the teachers. Do not feel that you must train with a Senior Instructor as any of the teachers will have a better knowledge and understanding of the art than a beginner, and will be able to start you on the long road that is Tai Chi Chuan. So look for a local teacher who is providing the type of training you want!

Instructor Grades:

  • Senior Instructors (S)- normally will have at least 20 years experience of practising Chinese internal arts in depth
  • Advanced Instructors (A)- normally will have at least 8-10 years experience of practising Chinese internal arts in depth.
  • Intermediate Instructors (I)- practice Chinese internal arts to an acceptable level.
  • Basic Instructors (B)- are continuing their apprenticeship in Chinese internal arts and able to teach at a basic level; they will usually still be training on a regular basis with their own instructor.
