Instructor Trish Miller (NZ)
Instructor Trish Miller was introduced to the Art of Tai Chi in 1999 after seeing a ‘Learner Tai Chi Class’ advert in a local newspaper. At the time life was difficult and traumatic, she took initiative to move her life forward in a positive direction fulfilling a life of happiness attainment. The words “stress & anxiety” drew her towards learning Tai Chi as well as promoting general health holistic wellbeing. Within 12 months of joining the class, her life changed dramatically with the benefits of Tai Chi. Trish grew up in a rural isolated area of New Zealand during her first 6 years of childhood. Across a swing suspension bridge spanning the Waikato River among a virgin NZ native forest of very mature established trees, plant and wild bird life. Nature instilled in her beginning of bonding with nature has instilled in my personality an awareness of strong connection and affinity to the balanced quietness & spiritual aspects of all nature, enhanced her feeling this has complimented and enhanced my feeling & understanding, particularly the inner qualities, of Tai Chi & Qigong Art.
Learning Tai Chi forms has inspired her to further pursue education & certification of varied topics, including, Computing, Real Estate, Te Reo Maori & Magnetic Healing, that Trish trained in has brought her into direct contact with many interesting people across a very wide spectrum, culturally, socially and professionally.
Her later life education was fully inspired by Tai Chi and its qualities of mindfulness, perseverance, persistence and patience.
