The Grand Ultimate


Tai chi has been called the grand ultimate. There are  so many different elements combined into the same exercise.  Being able to separate the different aspects of tai chi out adds depth to your practice.   Qigong can focus on different elements like joints, fascia, stretching, breathing, the flow of fluids, breathing, spiralling, and alignments. Being able to integrate all these aspects together is a way of improving how you move through life.  What you may focus on is what you feel inspired by.  Everybody is modifying what they do depending on their strengths and weaknesses and what they would like to improve.    Feel empowered by the modifications that you make that are in line with your abilities and understanding now. 


Gain the advantages of different tai chi styles.  Different styles in short forms are easier to get and offer different skills. Enjoy the timelessness of the meditation in motion.

About Rose

Rose fell in love with Tai Chi's grace and flow over 35 years ago. Working in a hospital setting, at a young age she was interested in who aged well and was impressed by tai chi being an "elixir of youth".


Over the years Rose has studied many tai chi forms and varieties of qigong.  She has studied simple versions and complex classic styles and extracts what works for improving the way we move every day and the way we use our hearts and brains to connect to ourselves and others. After many years of being like a tai chi orphan,  Rose has been studying through the tao space and feels connected to the depth of teaching and the styles of qigong.


Rose has always sort the best of teachers and is appreciative of the depth of experience that they all have. These teachers have brought many things from how to convey tai chi in the simplest ways to how to move through life. Her other interests include Systema which is a Russian soft martial art looking at the essentials of self-defence in a relaxed and efficient way.



Rose has represented New Zealand in taichi and push-hands as well as appearing in books on classic tai chi (Traditional Yang Style Tai Qi Quan: A detailed explanation in Chinese and English by Tang Yu-Shiun).


Rose's interest in health and wellbeing extends beyond Tai Chi. She has worked for Plunket, helped train consellors for lifeline, has studied massage and amatsu.  She has qualification in nutrition and career counselling


Rose has an M.A. in psychology and loves that science is creating a greater understanding of these ancient practices.  There are things that we can understand at a measurable level and it would be good to have even more research.  Rose respects the use of science for greater understanding.


Rose's personal experiences have included looking after elderly parents and unwell children. Rose enjoyed seeing her mothers balance and arthritis improve markedly with learning tai chi.  Her mother Mary walked unassisted till the day she died.   Her personal journey has included challenges like chronic fatigue.   Moving into working as an intuitive came from this.   Intuition offers the opportunity to listen deeply to ourselves and what works for us. Tai chi is also like this offering us an opportunity to listen to how our bodies feel and sometimes what comes up through the stillness.    Rose chooses to work in a holistic way. Eat2bwell is about optimizing the fuel that we use, Taichiwell offers a way to tune up the body and dive into the spirit, mind and body connections while Wellbeams is about having a personal coach and moving energies at a deep level.  


Currently Rose has been working through the Energy Arts system which is comprehensive including varieties of Qigong, Tai Chi, Bagua, Hsing I, Meditation, Breathing and Taoist yoga.   Their teaching is first class and offers a depth of knowledge that Rose has not seen before.  Rose invests both time and money to help improve her level of teaching.


Rose began teaching Tai Chi over 30 years ago. She has taught full-time and was one of the first teachers employed by the ACC falls prevention program. Rose has seen some fabulous results over the years, people moving out of wheelchairs to significantly improving their arthritis, improving backs, feeling calmer to name a few. Rose has taught tai chi teachers, in work environments, children, one-to-one, retirement villagers including at the hospital level, and dementia patients. Rose is dedicated to passing on the benefits of this ancient art.
