"This is traditional Tai Chi training as I learned it in China's Wudang Mountains. The Wudang Clan emphasise basic skills training as a way to reach the highest levels of this healing art. Our teaching style uses clear, detailed tuition and repetition to sink into exercises that are designed to soften and strengthen the body as well as focus the mind. As the body opens and the mind calms you can work with your qi, and over time can go on to create the Tai Chi Powers - the main martial principles of Tai Chi. From there, the physical, mental and spiritual evolution that this process brings is yours to discover." Shifu Lucia/袁微容

Instructor

Lucia Ring-Watkins

Lucia is a 16th Generation Wudang Lineage holder who has been training Tai Chi since 2002; her clan name is Yuan Wei Rong (袁微容). She learned Mandarin to communicate with her teacher, a Taoist monk called Yuan Li Min (袁理敏), and has spent over 2 years training Tai Chi full time in China's Wudang Mountains. Lucia is an ambassador for the Wudang Pai style of Tai Chi in the UK, and set up the first school in London teaching that style in 2010. During the Coronavirus pandemic Lucia switched to teaching online and has enjoyed having students from all over the world at her classes. This online course is the next step on that path.
