“I am so delighted to have trained as a Tai Chi instructor with the Jade Sun School. I had previously enrolled in other types of Tai Chi classes, but always felt there was something missing so when I came across this type of Tai Chi I knew it was the one for me because of the way it made me feel.

Originally I only did it for myself because I loved the benefits.  As the course went on I knew that I would have to share Tai Chi so others could experience the benefits for themselves.” ~ Lorraine Dunleavy


What has really made the course unique for me is that the Tai Chi is being taught in such a human and compassionate way. I feel it has provided a wonderful platform to help me to heal on a deep level. This is always done in such a safe and sacred way and it is testament to the integrity of Gary and Neal, the course instructors.

I am very grateful to Gary and Neal for creating this course which I have found to be a lot of fun and really enjoyable too!

I wholeheartedly recommend the Jade Sun School of Tai Chi and Qi Gong.” ~ Laurence Reddin



The Jade Sun School of Tai Chi and Qi Gong provides a very supportive learning environment that has helped me open and heal physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Gary and Neal are extremely patient and compassionate teachers who demonstrate true caring for every student. ~ Laura Prunty


“Highly recommend this course. The course is excellent – professional and meticulous teaching. I have found Tai Chi helpful to clear the mind, relax and energise the body. I love it.” ~ Sinead Cranwell
