I have only been studying Tai Chi with the Willow Tree School of Taiji for a short time, but under the watchful eye of Sifu Morgan, I have made more progress than I previously thought possible, though still only a beginner, I feel inspired, engaged, and empowered to take control of my training when not in class, but also to remain relaxed, humble, and open to learning at all times.
I whole heartedly recommend Willow Tree School, and Sifu Morgan to anyone serious about studying Tai Chi. - Sheldon Whittaker (Beginner Student)
Tai chi has been extremely beneficial to me as a low-impact excercise which helps to improve my arthritis and general health. I was also able to keep practising during my pregnancy, and Sifu Morgan was very helpful with tailoring the classes to suit my changing capabilities up to the birth and beyond. - Elizabeth Drake (Level Two Student)
Sifu Morgan emphasizes practicing Tai Chi foundation exercises daily without a break. All these short routine exercises contain in depth Tai Chi principles. I find this is extremely beneficial in terms of health and building a good foundation for Tai Chi form and sensing hands. As he always says laying a page a day will eventually make a book. - Shon Siau (Level One Student)
