Angela’s Tai Chi School
My name is Angela Howarth and I started teaching Tai Chi in 2002 with the Liverpool Adult Learning Service. I started my own Tai Chi journey in an adult education class about seven years before this and then moved on to join the YMAA who I trained with in Liverpool and Chester.
In 2008 I was introduced to Master Faye Li Yip of the Deyin Taijiquan Institute. I studied the Taiji Kungfu fan routine with Faye and qualified as an instructor in this form in November 2009.
Just prior to doing this I was picked to take part in Antony Gormley’s One and Other project and I appeared on the 4th plinth on 10th October 2009. It was a fabulous experience. See some of the pictures in the photo gallery. Click here to watch my hour.
In 2010 I started the level 1 instructor course with Master Tary Yip (Deyin Taijiquan Institute) and completed and passed in February 2011. A couple of months later I competed in the British Tai Chi Open Championship in Oxford and won two bronze medals. Since then I have also competed in the London Competition twice and have won two golds, two silvers and a bronze medals.
I am now a level four instructor with the Deyin Institute (June 2019) and a level two instructor with the British Health Qigong Association (May 2017). In June 2019 I also gained my Duan 3 Diploma in Health Qigong. I hold regular weekly classes, both in person and online, and Saturday workshops at various times throughout the year.
