I’m Nanda and
I am a qualified ITCCA Tai Chi Chuan teacher of the original Yang Style since 2004. (ITCCA: International Tai Chi Chuan Association.)
My knowledge encompasses Tai Chi Chuan & Qi Gong, as well as Taoist relaxation exercises, somatic awareness meditation, Tao self (Qi) massage, Yin Yoga, and knowledge of the 5-elements (TCM) system and YinYang philosophy. This combined with my paramedic profession as a Kinetic Therapist (Mensendieck: specialist in posture and movement patterns) gives me a broad knowledge in the field of body and mind.. Which I trully love to share….
….if I believe in anything, it is that the body is so much wiser than the mind
(or at least how we use it)…….
Experience in a nutshell
Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Gong, Yin Yoga and Dao Yin are based on Taoism philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
