Testimonials

"The Best Performances workshop was such a unique and beneficial experience! The balance between the personal development and Tai Chi was excellent, and both concepts worked really well independently and together. Chris and Sue were wonderful speakers, and were able to illustrate importance of detailed communication and recognition in a club, as well as the importance of Tai Chi to energise us. A fantastic presentation and experience – we will definitely invite Chris and Sue to do another presentation in the future!"

Natalie Pinto

"It was really motivational through the storytelling. And the practical and simple Tai Chi techniques were amazing – I really felt the difference. I came away feeling much more positive and freer of mind. I felt like I'd lost my inhibitions and it had opened my mind. It gave me a buzz!"

Maria Hermans
Swinburne Business Enterprise Centre

"I have taught and trained with Chris for several years and have observed his presentation and teaching skills and believe anyone can learn Tai Chi easily with the skills Chris has to offer. He can teach you how to become more relaxed or energised so you can develop the inner power necessary for happiness in life and work."

"This was a very worthwhile session – well presented, thoughtful and inspiring content and professionally hosted. Really appreciated the combination of 'more than talk' and the Tai Chi activities. Many thanks!"

Fae Campbell

"Thanks for your efforts yesterday – you did a great job covering all the year 10s in the one day, and the feedback from the kids has been very positive. The general feedback was that it was really enjoyable and they felt they got a lot out of it. At this age they have no qualms about being brutally honest, and I didn't hear anyone make a negative comment. The class that I have for English suggested we do some Tai Chi at the start of each class, and many said how relaxed it made them feel."
