On this page you will find a number of links to the websites of people or groups who I personally respect and support.
I am a great believer in giving credit where credit is due, and the fact that I choose to put these links on my website is purely because I endorse the character of the individuals concerned, and the work they do.
Having the good fortune to know good people who are passionate, grounded, humble and very good at what they do is something which I am extremely thankful for, so please do take a look at the links below and find out for yourselves.

Through first hand experience, Taru knows the importance of being able to retain one’s energy and mental clarity in a competitive and often stressful work environment. Personal experience has demonstrated to her the potency of the right diet, exercise and mental hygiene in providing not only the capacity to reach personal goals, but thriving whilst doing so. A desire to pass this knowledge on to others is what Thrive London is based upon.

Please check out the above link to my teacher’s website, Tai Chi Corner. Although I had been training for approximately 23 years before being introduced to Sifu Nathan’s work, I was searching over many years for a teacher who I could genuinely commit to as their student, thankfully I have found him.
The influence of Sifu Nathan’s teaching has had, and continues to have a profound effect on everything I do. Before I was introduced by my dear friend and teacher Paul Andrews (Sifu Nathan’s U.K. representative) I had no idea what it meant to ‘soften the body’, or how much unconscious habitual tension I carried in my body. So, I highly recommend that you check out Sifu Nathan’s website by clicking on the above link.
Richard is not only a wonderful cinematographer and video editor, but also a very experienced and knowledgeable Taiji, Qigong and Bagua practitioner. He has filmed and edited (beautifully I might add!) more than 95% of the videos on my website, and has a genuine understanding of not only what I do, but of how best to convey a visually soothing and peaceful feeling to the viewers.
Richard is also a dear friend who I wholeheartedly endorse, and who’s website link above contains a collection of all the free Qigong videos, which will be added to in the near future with a selection of very compatible instructional videos of his own. He also is responsible for starting the wonderful Simple Qigong Exercises Facebook group, which you can find here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/224080307615310/
