About your instructor Sophie Fagan is a Tai Chi instructor from the UK now living in Amsterdam. She has studied Tai Chi for over ten years in a variety of settings. Having trained and taught at Tai Chi schools in Bristol UK as well as deepening her training at The Wudang Gong Fu Academy in China. This range of experience and inspiration has fuelled the enthusiasm and knowledge inherent in her teaching. A few words from Sophie on her Tai Chi journey so far - "I discovered Tai Chi at a very stressful time of my life, when work got on top of me and I was finding it very difficult to switch off and find any ‘me time’. Practising Tai Chi regularly has changed all of that, helping me control my stress levels and providing me with that vital space to let go and relax. In turn it has deepened the connection between my mind and body developing good core strength and finding beauty in the movements, which are created in the Tai Chi forms. I love nothing more than to share the teachings of Tai Chi with those around me and to witness their development and learning." "Tai Chi is accessible to all ages and abilities. It's a well-being practice which you can enjoy for all of your life, improving your practice and reaping the benefits as you get older. Some of the most inspirational practitioners I have trained with have been in their 80's! I love that!"
