Quotes from TMW teachers

“An elderly lady who started with me last September has COPD and was told that the condition would never improve. She went for a check up last week and said the nurse who did it said her condition had improved by 15% and was totally confounded as to how this could happen!”

L. Edwards - TMW Teacher, Malvern

“I have been working with a 76 year-old lovely lady for 16 weeks. She walks with 2 sticks and has a left AFO (ankle foot orthosis or brace). On Monday I introduced her to Tai Chi Walking – she walked unaided for the first time since 1979! She had been wheelchair bound for 6 years.”

E. Scale - NERS

“It makes me so happy when the TMW sessions help [the participants] live a better life. And it motivates and inspires me to better myself and continuously learn. Thank you for training us to become encouraging teachers.”

S. Bhudia - TMW Teacher, London
