WELCOME TO CRYSTAL T’AI CHI
I formed Crystal T’ai Chi in 2001 to share my experiences of many years of practising T’ai Chi for my own health and well-being with all ages and abilities.

Forms Practised & Taught
Dr Paul Lam’s Health Forms
Modified Sun form for Arthritis & Back Pain
Trevor has practised T’ai Chi for over 30 years and taught since 2001 after training as an instructor under Dr Paul Lam in UK & US. He is an Affiliated Master Instructor for AMAA (Ability Martial Arts Association) and is also a member of the Deyin Taijiquan Institute training under Faye & Tary Yip & Prof. Li Deyin in traditional Sun style and Sabre forms, and was endorsed as a Deyin Sun Style Instructor in 2011.
For 16 years both he and associate instructor Joan, were certified teachers for the gentle modified Sun style form T’ai Chi for Health forms developed by the internationally acclaimed, Dr Paul Lam to help people suffering from Arthritis and other chronic conditions.
Crystal’s ‘signature’ style is Sun. We use Dr Lam’s modified forms for the less able, but for those who are capable or more adventurous, we teach the more demanding traditional Sun style 13, 38, 42 & 97 forms, Sun competition 73 form, Long (108) Yang form, Sword (Jian), Sabre (Dao) & Fan Forms. Sessions are supplemented by powerful but relaxing Qi Gong exercises.
We cater for beginners of all ages and abilities. If required we use Dr Lam’s modified health forms for arthritis, back pain, diabetes, osteoporosis and energy which have the support of organisation such as the Arthritis Foundations of Australia, USA and UK as safe, effective, and easy-to-learn programs.
We do not teach T’ai Chi as a formal martial art, but look to introduce people of any age, gender or fitness level to a wonderful source of relaxation and stress relief, as well as to the development of physical and psychological well-being.
