Having discovered Tai Chi as a student in 1985, I loved the unique combination of relaxation and energy development and went on to study with Gerda Geddes, Kinthissa and Tew Bunnag. In 1992 with increasing involvement in the world of commerce and London's dance culture I decided to take a break from Tai Chi. In 1998 I reconnected with Tai Chi and soon started attending training events with Master San Gee Tam. I found the Golden Flower curriculum to be highly effective for both personal development and cultivation of happy chi. I was inspired by Master San Gee Tam's teaching and by the strong sense of community that thrives in the school. In 2005 I qualified as a Golden Flower Instructor and am now teaching classes in Oxford. In all my classes I aim for students to experience both the fun and lightness of playing Tai Chi whilst also giving insight into the depth of experience and development that is available.

I was born in Germany and after training as a Physiotherapist I moved to England in 1991, to continue my career in the Health Service.
My Tai Chi Journey started in 1992, when I went to a class in Croydon to learn to relax. I got a lot more into the bargain - it helped me not only to be much more relaxed but to be more focused, centred and balanced in my whole being. As a qualified Physiotherapist I appreciate the amazing Health aspects of Tai Chi. After moving to Chichester in 1996 I came across the Golden Flower Tai Chi School, which added a whole new level to my practise.
From being a student I quickly turned to assisting and then qualified as a Golden Flower Tai Chi Instructor in 2005 and joined the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain as an Instructor member. To continually update and deepen my skills and practise I attend regular trainings with fellow Instructors, senior Instructors and of course the Master of the school San Gee Tam at Retreats and Trainings in Holland, Belgium and the US.
I am always inspired by Master San Gee Tam's teaching and the curriculum the school offers: personal development in all aspects of life and the cultivation of Happy Chi. I really enjoy the great sense of community and friendship in the school.
In my classes I reflect these aspects so that students can benefit from Tai Chi as much as I do; having fun and enjoyment, depth of experience and nurture personal development.
In 2006 I decided to complement the health aspects of Tai Chi with more "hands on" and trained as a Reflexologist. I qualified in December 2007 and I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists, updating and expanding my skills at regular training events. I am treating clients with a variety of conditions and enjoy the improvement and difference it makes to their health and lives.
My unique knowledge and experience through the combination of Physiotherapy, Tai Chi and Reflexology allows me to approach each student and client as an individual from a holistic point of view and support them as a whole being in their Health and their Self-development.
I live in Chichester, enjoying walks along the beaches and in the Downs and have two daughters.
