Jenny Harrison

Jenny’s interest in Tai Chi began almost 30 years ago when she was studying Goju Ryu karate. After watching a demonstration of Tai Chi and the martial application of the postures, Jenny developed an interest in the concept of strength through softness, and soon the physical and cognitive benefits of slow, flowing movements became apparent.

Over the years, and under the guidance of Master Ming Shao, Master Jesse Tsao, Master Deming Liu, and Master Wing Cheung, Jenny has become proficient in Yang style, Tai Chi for Arthritis and Qigong.
