I’ve worked in IT my whole life. But as a mum of a 4-year-old boy, I now work part-time.

I have always been interested in and have done different types of physical exercise; including eastern techniques  for harmonizing meridians, 5 tibetans exercise and latterly hatha yoga. Always amazed by martial arts, but never tried it.

My first experience of Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan came in 2015, when I watched Dagmar practising it. It was wonderful to watch. I was so excited to have a chance to join intensive course in Viterbo, Italy later that year.
It was very interesting but very intensive.
After that I continued to practise on my own, but my life went a different way for a while. I got pregnant and many things changed after that.

When I felt a strong need to come back to some type of exercise which suited me, I had a chance to join online lessons with sifu. I really enjoy practising, making progress, learning new movements and mainly realize how I feel while doing it.

For example, last lesson, doing “Once around the world”, I realized how much tension and blockage is present in my body, how the movements help to relax these parts, how my arms felt like being pumped up and full of energy. While moving, I relaxed my whole body as much as I could and let the energy flow. It is wonderful!!

  1. Subject: Today’s feedback

    I was very pleased to be the part of today’s meta-therapy session. Thru that I felt the cool flow in the whole left side of my body. Then I felt at the end of my backbone slightly warm slow regular energy circulation. As I can feel right now again, and stronger.

    Section 3 today reminded me of 2 things:
    1. How important it is to continue and always practise all that I have learnt (otherwise I lose it).
    2. How much I like Stances & Poses, it gives me a lot of improvement in the movements.

    Thank you.

    Today’s dance filled me with a lot of inner peace. I was feeling a little bit dizzy sometimes and especially these moments I realized the peaceful energy and feelings a lot. When finished, it was a lot of hidden processes going on. I wanted to stay as long as possible in the last pose and just be…enjoying what is happening. So thankful feelings.

    Thru practising the 108 styles I often recognize “the right” movement. It feels like peaceful flow without any thoughts.

  4. Subject: Last 2 lessons – feeling

    The movements I have learned today, last week and in the end today, when you showed us next part, those movements together make me feel like I know this and for me the feeling is connected to the martial arts. The movement feels very complex, disciplined, harmonic and powerful. Such interesting energy with hidden information.
