Gemma Britton

Gemma Britton has practiced Tai Chi Chuan with the Master Ding Academy since 2005, building on years of martial arts training from childhood. She loves every aspect of the art and is grateful for the balance it has brought to her life in so many ways. 
Whether you are looking for a gentle form of exercise, to improve your health and wellbeing in a relaxed environment or looking to explore some of the more challenging aspects of Tai Chi, Gemma will work with you to get the most from each lesson, regardless of age, ability or experience. The aim is always that you will leave each lesson feeling relaxed, energised and - most importantly - with a smile.

Gemma also works for an older people’s charity. She strongly believes age shouldn't be a barrier to trying new things or staying active and knows that the sense of community a shared interest can bring is so important.
