ABOUT JEREMY COLLEDGE
Hi, I’m an escapee from the City! I worked there for 15 years, and in the process I accumulated all the negative habits which accompany that lifestyle – late nights, alcohol, and cigarettes, all leading to STRESS and poor health!
12 years ago, whilst trying different therapies and exercise forms in order to improve my health, I came across Chen Man Ching’s Short form Tai-chi. I found the classes extremely helpful and enjoyable – they triggered my interest in and love of eastern arts, which continues to this day.
The black bags under my eyes started to go, I became less susceptible to colds and flu, and my energy levels soared! Today I’m twice as flexible physically and mentally as I was 15 years ago!
My background reading into Tai-chi forms helped me to discover and thus begin my in-depth study of Qigong. I began to understand that the Qigong energy system was the key to all eastern healing methods. It was this process that led to my great escape, as I realised that having healed myself, I wanted to teach and heal others.
I was trained by the International Institute of Medical Qigong first as a practitioner, then a qualified therapist and teacher, in due course I hope to become a Doctor of Medical Qigong.
I had the privilege of studying Qigong and Tai-chi sword form with Grand Master Chen. I was also a student of Master Lam’s, studying Tai-chi and Zhan Zhuang (Pronounced Jam Jong!)
