Certified Instructor of Chen’s Tai Chi for Health and Wellness
Valid: February, 2017 – February, 2019
I graduated both in philosophy (PhD in Paris, France) and music (Piano performance diploma in France; and 2 Associateship diplomas of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (A.R.C.T.) in Piano performance and Piano teaching). I studied also organ. I am a registered music teacher in Montreal for more than 10 years. I also published books for students in France about philosophy.
I am interested about multiple sides of Chinese history and culture: art, music, literature (Tang dynasty poets; Cao Xue Qin, Pu Song Ling), philosophy and spirituality (Kong Zi, Lao Zi, Huainan Zi, Hanfei Zi, Meng Zi) and the culture and history around Martial Arts (external and internal techniques, Shaolin temple, traditional Gong Fu, Wing Chun, Yang style Tai Chi).
And I finally discovered Chen’s Tai Chi. In January 2014, I joined Sino Wushu Academy in Montreal for Chen’s Tai Chi. I started to learn Chen’s Taichi Essential 18 forms, Chen’s Taichi Straight Sword (Jian) Essential 18 forms and longer 49 forms, Old Frame 1 and push-hands with Masters Leon Xu and Qian Zhou.
In 2015, I participated in the Seminar of Grand Master Chen Zhenglei (18 forms bare hands and Old Frame 1, 49 forms straight sword, and one master class about Old Frame 2). I also participated in the Quebec Traditional Wushu Championship, 2d International Chen’s Tai Chi Tornament in Montreal, awarded medals in bare hands and straight sword (Jian).
In 2017, I got growingly enthousiastic about becoming an instructor for teaching Chen’s Tai Chi for Health and Wellness (Yangsheng Gong) and its benefits on the qi, health and life balance. Now I still continue to learn Chen’s Taichi, its internal and martial virtues, with Masters Qian Zhou and Leon Xu at Sino Wushu Academy.
