About Martin

 I am eternally grateful to have been introduced to Qigong (Chi Kung) & Taiji (Tai Chi) in 2003, by my first teacher Janice Scott. After years struggling with stress and anxiety, I was drawn by the grounding and calming effect that it had upon me. My  journey took me to Thailand to practice Shibashi in Lumpini Park, Bangkok. And two years later I to Asheville, NC, USA  to train with 'Chi Running ' author and 'injury free' Ultra Marathoner Danny Dreyer.   I then embarked upon a 2 year Qigong practitioner course and  teacher training with Clara Apollo, an inspirational teacher and graduate of the Elemental School of Chi Kung, London. I am now honoured to be able to share this accessible, down to earth and fascinating way of self healing -and a path towards discovering our true nature. In 2015 to satisfy my interest in the mind body connection; I completed BACP Levels 2 & 3 in Counselling Skills and Theory at Redlands Counselling Services, Bournemouth, UK. In June 2017 I was blessed to train with Professor Kenneth S. Cohen, a leading world authority and the author of 'The Way of Qigong, The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing'


"For me, Martin's Qigong class is like a little oasis of calm where I can let go of the outside world. He teaches in a gentle and focused way that I find easy to follow and helps me to remember the sequence of movements. At the end of the class, I always feel re-energised, peaceful and happy"  Liz B.   

"I have found attending classes with Martin both relaxing and instructive. He has been able to impart this Eastern philosophy in an easy and friendly manner. A great introduction to this way of being"  Steve Q.
