About Us

Shen Tai Chi Academy was founded over 10 years ago by Marie Louisa Paulinus as a co-operative group of qualified Tai Chi Instructors who share a common aim of spreading the word about the enormous benefits of Tai Chi to as many people in the area as possible. We share information on classes, Tai Chi forms and sessions with our Tai Chi Masters. As with all groups of professionals, our instructors each have their own specialities and interests, from healing to weapon forms, so we are able to cater for many different types of Tai Chi student between us. If you are not taking to the forms provided at one class we can refer you to another. So why not pop in to one of our sessions and give it a go!

With Regards, Stephen Brown
