Alan Skirving has been practising Tai Chi since 1997 and has studied with a number of teachers in the Cheng Man-ch’ing and Huang Sheng Shyan lineage of Yang Style Tai Chi.  He has attended many workshops over the past two decades with senior teachers from these and other Tai Chi styles, as well as other forms of movement practice, martial arts and chi gung.  Alan has been training with Adam Mizner since 2014 and is a certified 1st level instructor with Heaven Man Earth Internal Arts.  He is also a registered advanced instructor with the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain.

Alan has also practised Yoga since 1998, with a particular interest in ‘Scaravelli-inspired’ yoga for more than ten years.  He has worked with many inspiring teachers over that time and in 2015 began an ongoing teacher training programme with Marc Acquaviva –  He has also explored various forms of meditation and related practices.  His approach to Tai Chi is influenced by these wider experiences while staying true to the art.
