Theresa S K Tan
Theresa has been practising Tai Chi since 2009, and teaching since 2015.
Having found her passion in her Tai Chi practice, Theresa teaches to share and discover more of the intricacies and benefits from the regular practice, as part of her own advancement and journey.
She is experienced in teaching regular and corporate classes.
Theresa has attended training and workshops conducted by various Tai Chi masters/grandmaster, and competed at local and regional level events.
In the past 4 years, I not only learnt the proper movement and breathing method of Tai Chi but also the philosophy and the spirit of Tai Chi. Teacher David would always share with his students about the essence of Tai Chi.
His teaching integrates the highest technical skill with elegance & grace of movement while also transmitting 'inner spirit and energy'. I can't recommend David highly enough to anyone seeking to deepen their Tai Chi practice - be it technically, energetically or spiritually.
