The interest in Taiji and Qi Gong started when I was 21 and has continued to be central since. I came to Scotland in 1993 to study at Glasgow School of Art, where I got a degree in Photography. I have lived, studied and worked in Scotland since. In 1997 I finished my apprentice training with Rising Dragon Tai Chi. At the same time, I also qualified as a Kairos therapist. Ever since I have continued learning and developing Taiji and Qi Gong forms, with various teachers. I have been a Mitra with Triratna since 2013 and have been on various retreats. I am interested in the importance of ‘embodiment’ or how body work can help us to be more present and alive. I am also very interested in working with energy and healing, as an aid for change.
