When I started to teach tai chi and qi gong, I wanted to share my passion for these ancient health systems. When I chose my “business name” I wanted to find something that would define my dream. I chose house of movement because my dream was to create a community of like-minded people (around a house/studio) who would share a passion for movement. When I talk about movement, I mean external / physical movement, but also internal /psychological movement and spiritual movement. With the practice of tai chi and qi gong, you start a journey with physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions. My own journey brought me to leave my previous career as a translator and interpreter and start a new path into accompanying others into their own journeys, through teaching tai chi and qi gong and as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
Now, my journey is bringing me to the UK, where I will teach tai chi in Devon. I will bring my dream with me, hoping that I will be able to build on the successes that my students and I have enjoyed in Dublin, with lots of enthusiastic faces in my classes. I hope that one day I will be able to create a real house of movement with my tai chi friends in Devon. I will be affiliated to Master Nick Taylor of the Devon Tai Chi Centre. Master Taylor, disciple of Grandmaster Liming Yue, has been teaching tai chi in Devon for over 12 years.

From September I will discontinue my regular tai chi and qi gong classes in Dublin, and I will only come to teach workshops every now and then. From September I will be running tai chi courses in different areas of Devon. I am in the process of arranging venues and I will publish more information about my September tai chi courses in Devon soon. I am also planning to continue running qi gong classes, so my tai chi courses in Devon will be complemented by my qi gong and meditation classes.
