Welcome to Wudang Pai Tai Chi GB, My name is Lucia or 袁微容 (Yuan Wei Rong), I am a 16th Generation Descendant of the Wudang Clan and I teach Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Wudang Kung Fu and Wudang Sword from the Wudang Kung Fu curriculum.

Corona Virus Updates: During this time you can learn traditional Wudang Tai Chi online on Tuesday evenings, Five Element Qi Gong online on Thursday evenings, and Beginners Tai Chi outdoors in Stoke Newington on Tuesday lunchtimes.  You can find out more about all of these group lessons here. For those unable to make those classes, you can train in your own time using my online tuition series, a video introduction to this is below.

I have reduced my rate for private lessons on weekday daytimes, and am making a series on an immune boosting exercise known as Standing Stake which is available for free on my youtube channel. Now more than ever I feel that people need the mental and physical health benefits of training Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and the sense of community that training brings with it. If you would like to find out more about what Tai Chi is and how it can help you, check out the about page.

I started studying Tai Chi in 2002, and met my shifu Yuan Li Min at his school on the Wudang Mountains, China in 2006. Since then I have spent a total of around 2 years training with him full time in Wudang, and return there most years to study or take my students on retreats. In order to deepen my understanding of Tai Chi I learned Mandarin, and dived deeply into the Taoist Philosophy of balance and harmony. To hear more about my story, check out this article from Tai Chi Union magazine. For a short visual introduction to my Tai Chi journey and teaching style, check out the video below.

If you would like to attend a class, workshop or retreat, or have questions about any aspect of the Wudang style, you are welcome to get in contact. Alternatively, if you would like to be kept up to date with the latest events, you can subscribe to to our mailing list at the bottom of the page. Meanwhile, I hope that you enjoy the site!
