A wonderful mix of incredible scenery between lush tropical forest and picturesque waterfalls, temples and tai chi. Dave guided us through different breathing disciplines and meditations as well as ancient Asian wisdom.

I did the level one Tai Chi foundation course and it did not disappoint me at all. I felt the Tai Chi I learned was very real, not a fluffy dance version but a very complete internal health and spiritual based martial art. The course was very well structured with several side exercises and lessons in Qi Gong, pushing hands... More

Dave is a very passionate and knowledgeable teacher! since completing a 4 hour Tao healing workshop almost two months ago I have become hooked on Tai chi and Qi Gong. I feel lucky, being one of the younger participants in the class that day, that I have come across this practice early and have it as a way of maintaining... More

I really enjoyed studying the Tai Chi 24 form from Dave this summer. He doesn't just teach the choreography, but also incorporates the martial applications, correct breathing techniques/posture and even introduces the concepts of leading qi around the body. I learnt a great deal and would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of this... More

I have been practising and teaching tai chi and qigong for many years. On a recent trip to Bali I took the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with Dave West (who I had heard about in Australia) in a private session, as well as attend a few of his classes and his half-day workshop. Dave has a great... More

I'm glad I took a chance and had this course for a couple of weeks in Ubud, Bali. The teacher Dave West is very talented and ambitious. He gave everything and as a student I was very inspired and motivated, not to only complete the course, but also to continue Tai Chi when I come home again. You learn the... More

Dave is an amazing teacher. He really has the ability to make one understand the whole philosophy and meaning of Qi gong and Taiji. And it was so much easier to learn all the exercises (internal and external). I can really recommend him as personal teacher. I also learnt so much more about life, buddhism, the Tao and the spiritual... More
