Tai Chi Works

This website aims to share with you some of the pleasures and benefits of Tai Chi (TaiJi) and the related disciplines of Qi Gong (Taijiwuxigong),  Buqi and Meditation - and my work as a teacher and practitioner of these arts.


Tai Chi has been described as 'Everything'.  This may sound a bit grand but the practice of Tai Chi can have a far reaching positive effect on many areas of life.  It does this by working with all the different parts of a person: the physical, mental, energetic and spiritual.  Regular practice can help life get smoother and increases your awareness of yourself and your environment in many new and exciting ways.


My goal  is to share the benefits of Tai Chi.  I specialise in adapting Tai Chi so that it can be safely practised by everyone - no matter their age or health.

Ten years ago, on the 26th October,  my teacher Dr Shen Hongxun died.  It was a big loss to me and to all his students.  Last week we gathered to remember him and to practise together.  We were joined on zoom by groups in Brighton, Devon and Oslo and individuals from throughout Europe AND his daughter Master Shen Jin .  

It was lovely.


"Karen's online classes have been such a delight during the restrictions imposed by the Covid pandemic. A chance to forget daily stresses and focus our minds and bodies on the new tai chi movements we have been learning. And then the times we were able to move outdoors into the fresh air added a further sense of awareness. Her sessions definitely refresh the parts that other exercise classes cannot reach! " JK
