I am Phil Wright, an Advanced Instructor of Tai Chi Chuan and QiGong with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain. I think Tai Chi is vital to good health. I have been practising Tai Chi and QiGong for thirty years and run Tai Chi classes based in Launceston, Cornwall as well as private one to one lessons and bespoke group work. I also coach children locally in Cornwall and Devon in schools. I can provide bespoke training and classes for different needs, such as sitting QiGong and Tai Chi for Care Homes as well as Corporate chill out. I have worked closely with the Parkinson’s society and run workshops at the Eden Project. I also work at festivals in the Summer – running Family Tai Chi workshops. Please check out my pages on the site for more information on my practice; class details and Tai Chi for Schools. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like further information – details on the contact page.

I personally practice Chen Man Ching and Dr Chi Chiang Short Forms, Yang Long form, Push Hands (better called Sensing Hands), Da Lui, San Shou (partner form or “the dance”) and Sword form and fencing. I also practice White Crane QiGong and Eight silk Brocade QiGong (Ba Duan Jin) as well as various sets of respected warm up exercises including the original British Tai Chi Chuan Association set and Master Huang loosening exercises.

I try to facilitate how to deeply relax to experience the Chi or energy at the heart of true vitality which si the wellspring for health as well as self defence. My approach is one based on my own experience and realisation that Tai Chi is an internal art. The external form and movements are secondary to an understanding of what happens on the inside with energetic movements and developments. The external movements are an expression of what we are inside. I practice and teach according to the principles laid down in the Classic writings of Tai Chi. Tai Chi is within us – we simply have to allow it to emerge.

Stepping into the Tai Chi journey is an awesome thing to do and brings great benefits – it’s a step towards more vitality, health and wellbeing. I have always found that the practice of Tai Chi changes oneself and our lives positively, bringing us into more harmony.
