Before moving to Australia, I worked as a High School Teacher in China. Once I arrived in Australia, I pursued a double degree in Business and Accountancy from Griffith University and spent over six years working in the financial industry. While I am grateful for the knowledge and experience gained from these pursuits, I realized they did not align with my passion.
Interestingly, I did not learn Tai Chi until I moved to Australia, despite it being a national sport in China. My first teacher, Master Chen, was a remarkable individual and my grandfather’s best friend. He taught Tai Chi at New Farm Park until he passed away at the age of 93. As I practiced Tai Chi and learned about its numerous health benefits, I became eager to share this with others and make a positive impact on the world.
I was frustrated to find that some people had difficulty learning traditional Tai Chi sets, until I discovered Dr. Paul Lam’s Tai Chi for Health Institute. The institute had created modified programs that were easy to learn, making Tai Chi accessible to people of all abilities. Through the institute, I became a Certified Tai Chi Instructor and Leader for both Tai Chi for Arthritis and Tai Chi for Diabetes programs.
I am also a qualified Personal Trainer and have helped many individuals improve their physical and mental health. Additionally, I achieved a black belt in Taekwondo in Australia, learning from two different masters. For two years, I assisted my husband in teaching Taekwondo.
