To learn more, you need to look deeper.

You have taken the first step.

Tai Chi and Qi Gong are like this.

😐 Learning the movements is the first step.

😮 Understanding the movements and the transfer of weight is the next step.

;) Hopefully you are then able to feel and control the flow of Chi (Life Energy) through your body.

If you have a group of people ( 😀 😮 😉 😛 😐 🙂 ), Teresa is more than happy to host a one day, or a series of workshops at a venue of your choosing, Community Centre, Life Style Village, Parish Centre, or even in the garden if the weather is kind.

Teresa’s most fortunate Tai Chi and Qi Gong journey with Master Jacquie Walther


After forty years, I still own and run (part time) Teresa’s Academy of Dressmaking and Tuition. Designing, making and teaching students to make made to measure creations for special occasions and every day wear. As a result of all those years, my joints and muscles had become accustomed to sitting and sewing. Luckily my mother inlaw’s Doctor suggested she do Tai Chi for her Diabetes.


My fortunate Tai Chi journey was about to begin. I gladly enrolled both of us in a Tai Chi and Qi Gong Exercise Medicine class because deep down I knew this would be good for me. My mother inlaw insisted the slow movements could not possibly help. With encouragement from Master Jacquie Walther and the group we soon able to do the free flowing movements without pain or being puffed.


Within a few years Jacquie had me instructing the Mulan Qi Gong session. Jacquie was asked to conduct another class. She simply did not have the time. So, if I would be so kind as to do this for her, Jacquie assured me, I was ready, I knew and understood enough of the Tai Chi routine to instruct the beginners class. While Jacquie was able to instruct, I continued to learn so much from her, until sadly she had to retire. Thank you very much Jacquie.


Thankfully Jacquie also suggested I enrol in the Dr Paul Lam’s Tai Chi for Health Progams at the Arthritis and Osteoporosis Foundation of WA


Dr Paul Lam

The slow, relaxed, low impact, targeted movements over time cultivates Qi (Life Energy) to improve the circulation to the organs and throughout the whole body while gently stretching, stabilising and strengthening the muscles. The muscles are then better able to support the targeted joints. The flow and weight transfer of each specific movement and transition to the next movement has been designed to be safe and effective by Master Dr Paul Lam. Dr Lam in conjunction with Tai Chi associates and a team of medical experts considered the available medical evidence, both orthodox and traditional Chinese medicine, for each and every Tai Chi for Health Program. Fitness and mental health improve balance which helps prevent falls.


To be a Certified Instructor a Master Trainer needed to visit Perth.

was composed using Dr Lam’s deep understanding of Tai Chi principles, he carefully combined the complementary internal energy of two seemingly contrasting styles of Tai Chi to bring you greater synergy.
😮 Chen style Tai Chi is vigorous and sophisticated, containing fast and slow movements along with the powerful spiral force (Chan Suu Jing).
;) Sun style Qi Gong combines controlled breathing with slow, agile steps to control the flow of Qi (Life Energy).
