Philip Sheridan


Philip has practised tai chi and other martial arts for over 34 years.

“I love the emphasis Paul Lam places upon the health benefits of tai chi and the integration of the tai chi principles into one’s everyday practice. It’s this particular emphasis that I like so much about the programmes offered by the Tai Chi for Health Institute.

Tai chi became even more important to me in my recovery from a near-fatal road accident in 2002 that left me with an amputation of my right leg and other serious injuries.

I tend to think of myself as a journeyman in tai chi nowadays. Practice tai chi for long enough and you come to realise that it’s not the number of moves or sequences you have learned that matters. Rather, it’s about the tai chi principles and the quality you put into the moves that matters most.”

The great thing about tai chi is that age and ability ought not to be a barrier.

As a low impact form of exercise tai chi offers people living with all kinds of health conditions the opportunity to improve the quality of their life, building strength, developing balance, and promoting deep relaxation.”

Philip works as a facilitator and tutor teaching on the 5 year MBChB at the School of Medicine, University of Leeds. He also works on curriculum development, leadership, personal development and communication skills. He is in demand as guest lecturer at other Universities across the UK.

Philip runs a his own successful consultancy business and social enterprise.
He is a published poet, blog writer, and workshop facilitator.
