Chinese Health Qigong and Tai Chi in Glasgow and the West of Scotland
I've been teaching Tai Chi Chuan and qigong in and around Glasgow for 5 years and practicing these arts for nearly 15. As well as being an instructor with the British Health Qigong Association and Practical Tai Chi Chuan International, I'm also a qualified PSI instructor and personal trainer.
In the past I've trained in China, taken part in competitions, arranged demonstrations and had all kinds of Tai Chi adventures all over the world. These travels have shown me the benefits these arts can bring to people of all ages.
Qigong (pronounced "chee-gong" and sometimes spelled Chi Gung) is the modern name for a range of Chinese health exercises which date back thousands of years. Combining gentle movements with relaxed breathing, qigong can help relieve stress, restore energy, improve flexibility, balance and mobility, all while promoting a sense of general wellbeing.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of qigong systems exist. Health Qigong is a series of these exercises researched and developed in Chinese universities since 2002, marrying ancient tradition with modern sports science to ensure positive results using safe methods. At Glasgow Health Qigong we have a "Safety First" mentality and our deliveries can be tailored to the needs of seated participants, standing participants, or a mixture of both.
We only teach exercises with a proven track record and millions of world-wide enthusiasts who enjoy the physiological and psychological benefits of regular qigong practice.

I've been practicing Chinese martial arts and various qigong systems for 25 years, studying with Tommy Carruthers (Jun Fan Gung Fu), Grandmaster Raymond Man (Shaolin Hung Fut) and the late greats Ronnie Robinson (Qigong) and Paul Smith (Wing Chun). For the past 14 years I've been learning Tai Chi Chuan and like Laura I'm qualified with the British Health Qigong Association and Practical Tai Chi Chuan International, though I'm always seeking to develop my skills and deepen my understanding.
My focus is on teaching the "internal arts" like tai chi and qigong to people who may otherwise have difficulty accessing exercise, and I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients across a range of settings.
