Health knowledge made personal
Linda has studied the arts of Tai Chi & Qigong for over 27 years. She has taught in community centres, hospitals, seniors centres and privately for the past 20 years. Her background is Yang Style as taught by David Lau in Toronto, Canada. In addition to teaching the traditional sets of Yang Style Tai Chi, Linda works with her students' Chi and helps them to improve their health with Qigong exercises and Easy Tai Chi moves. Although traditional style teaching has the student memorize the forms first and perfect them afterward, Linda prefers to let the student first achieve the correct principles and later, if they desire, memorize the forms. Some of Linda's students decide to just continue to practice the Easy Tai Chi exercises. Some go on to memorize the traditional forms and reap those benefits. She was granted a teaching certificate by her teacher David Lau and holds "Instructor's Black Sash in Forms and Tai Chi Sword" with the World Wide Federation of Martial Arts; recognized by the International Karate Federation. Linda achieved first and second place rankings in Tai Chi Sword in Ladies Black Belt Weapons Division Competition (2002). Linda brings knowledge and fun to learning this life enhancing skill with her warm relatable style.
