In 1990, searching for holistic ways to deal with a four years old HIV infection, I started learning and practicing Yang Style Taiji. I joined the Dong school in 1996 and started teaching in 1997 to share the benefits of Taiji with other people living with Aids. My classes soon extended to the general public. I held classes in London until I moved to Mallorca (Spain) in 2010 where I started my own school in the north of the Island.

I regularly participate in Taiji Intensive Training Camps held by Master Alex Dong across the world. It gives me the opportunity to further my understanding of the principals required to develop this holistic art. Living with HIV and Aids since 1986, I strongly believe that Taiji is an intrinsic part of my survival, both physical and mental.
