Trevor Slattery


Since his first workshop in 2013, Trevor has been involved with conducting Tai Chi for Arthritis and Update workshops throughout Western NSW and Far West Local Health Districts and is recognised across the area as a keen advocate for the benefits of practicing tai chi.

These workshops have given Trevor the opportunity to meet and engage with many new and experienced community tai chi leaders, and helped to inspire his own tai chi journey while having the privilege of teaching tai chi across regional NSW.

After completing Tai Chi for Energy Instructor training in 2016, he has found a fascination with Chen and hopes starting tai chi (relatively) early in life will give him enough time to appreciate some of the depth, relationships and unique characteristics that various styles have to offer.

With a background in basketball refereeing, in his spare time Trevor helps to coach up and coming basketball referees on and off the court. He has found that tai chi has greatly improved his movement and speed during games while helping him to recover more quickly from injuries.

A firm believer that tai chi practice can and should be incorporated into everyday life, Trevor encourages referees to use breathing exercises as a means to manage stress and maintain focus in challenging situations, while being more conscious of protecting their joints and safely transferring their weight before fast changes in direction on court.

Trevor hopes that his own example can serve as motivation for people to engage with tai chi as early as possible, not just for the health benefits, but also for the fun and friendships found along the way.
