I feel that there are many 'ways in' to understanding
Tai Chi; physically,energetically, mentally or
emotionally. This accessibility of the path is
something that inspires me in my teaching.
I really enjoy being able to explore the practice and
the principles with my students; to facilitate an
environment and an experience where they have an
opportunity to soften and relax and to learn to listen
to the wisdom of their own bodies.
It inspires me that the way students are able to
connect the practice to their lives is because it is
their own felt experiences that show them Tai Chi-
that their understanding arises from within. When we
are able to soften and listen truth becomes available
The play of this relationship and my awareness of it,
as an individual, and in relation to the world around
me, gives life to my teaching.
