Robert began learning Tai Chi with Master Ding Academy in 2008. From gaining considerable health benefits from daily practice of Tai Chi and Chi Kung, he decided to take the step of training to become an MDA instructor and qualified in 2017. He continues his development of Tai Chi Chuan on a regular basis that includes training and assessment by Master Ding.

Robert has been a multiple disabilities and mental health rehabilitation training instructor since 1992 and has worked in London, UK and Ireland. He holds a BA (Hons) in Training and Education from NUI Galway and runs a daytime Mental Health Wellness and Recovery programme for National Learning Network in Co. Kildare.

Classes are designed to be fun and Robert provides a supportive, friendly atmosphere in which you can learn at your own pace.
