Ian Hay

Ian Hay started Tai Chi around 2006/7 and was instantly hooked. After a few years he began to look around for more in depth instruction and through contacts discovered Master Ding in London. Since around 2010 he has been coming to private lessons with Nick Cheang almost every week, despite living in Birmingham, as well as attending Northampton workshops and classes whenever he can.

In addition he regularly travels to London to also learn from Master Ding, attending many of his workshops, retreats and intensive training weekends. 

He has been qualified to teach Tai Chi for Health since 2011 and is on his way to achieving full Traditional Tai Chi Chuan Instructor status.
