In Memoriam



In loving memory of Ronnie Robinson who passed away in April 2016.

Ronnie was Secretary of the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain, Editor of Tai Chi Chuan Magazine and founder of Tai Chi Europa and Tai Chi Caledonia. 

For many years he dedicated his life to increasing knowledge and awareness of Tai Chi via the UK media and links with Europe and China.

His contribution to the global Tai Chi community was immense and he will be deeply missed by the many thousands of people who knew him.

Rest in Peace Ronnie

Yiheyuan instructor 

Yolande Sowerby

was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation Award 

by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, 

on Tuesday 17th May 2013 at Leeds Civic Hall for her voluntary work teaching Tai Chi for the prevention and treatment of athritis!

Yolande works in partnership with Age UK and Chapel Allerton Hospital and has helped many people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

Tai Chi Makes You More Brainy!

A study has shown that regular practice of Tai Chi three times a week improves memory and actually increases brain volume!

The researchers studied groups of older people. The Tai Chi group and a group taking part in lively discussions three times a week both experienced improvements in memory and increased brain volume while those doing neither experienced brain shrinkage over the same time period.

The results were published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and bring hope that Tai Chi may delay the onset of this condition.

This will come as no surprise to anyone who has risen to the mental challenge of learning Tai Chi Chuan, or to anyone who has had the privilege of teaching Tai Chi and watching students flourish and inspire each other. 

Tai Chi provides a form of exercise and a field of study second to none, and this may be the whole reason for it's efficacy, though we strongly suspect that you are the additional magic ingredient in the recipe; which gives you the right to be big-headed!
