My name is Alex Gallifent.  I have been practicing Tai Chi on a daily basis for the last 9 years.  I am qualified to teach both the Yang and Sun styles of Tai Chi as well as Qigong and Daoyin exercises.

I received my Yang style instructor certification (Cheng Man Ching lineage) from Tai Chi Nation.  I passed their 18 month instructor training with a distinction.  

I received my level two Sun Style instructor certification from The Deyin Taijiquan Institute.  

I am a fully insured instructor member of the Tai Chi union of Great Britain.  

As well as Tai Chi I also qualified to teach the Cheng style of Baguazhang.  I received my Bagua instructor certification from the Earth and Ocean martial arts school having completed 384 lessons under lineage disciple Andrew Coles.

My personal practices include Wu style Tai Chi, Hsing-I Chuan,
I-Chuan and Taoist meditation.

When possible my teaching will be assisted by my wife Theresa.

Class times and locations are detailed under the home section of the site.

I am available for private tuition in Tai Chi or Bagua if requested.  

I am also available for introductory talks on Tai Chi at request.
