Based in the East Neuk of Fife, East Winds provides training in Traditional Yang Family T’ai Chi Ch'uan as taught by Yang Zhen Ji (the second son of Yang Cheng-fu). Although the school’s main teaching curriculum is Yang style, several of our Instructors have also been accredited to teach Master Paul Lam’s “Tai Chi for Arthritis” programme. We also teach Traditional Yang Family Sword and Sabre forms as well as Push Hands and T’ai Chi Applications. We have taught Zhan Zhuang (Jam Jong) classes at Maggies Cancer Care Centre in Kirkcaldy since it opened in 2006.
Our founder, Alistair Sutherland, worked with Chinese Internal Arts for over 20 years and is an “A” grade Instructor with the T’ai Chi Union for Great Britain.
We organise seminars for industry and have worked with Fife Health Board Primary Care Trust providing T’ai Chi and Qigong training for health professionals.
