About the Tutor: Bronwen Elaine Ferry

Bronwen has been practicing Tai Chi since about 1998, initially because she was interested in alternative methods of exercise and the culture and traditions which accompanied Tai Chi. She travelled through Asia, visiting Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, and some of her exercises and principles are drawn from these experiences. She has had hip and pelvis problems for many years and found that these were considerably reduced as she increased her practice of Tai Chi.
