Rajan

Rajan’s work as a professional Qigong and Taichi teacher has led him to work with exceptional practitioners and teachers of the mind-body arts.

His study and training began in London with yoga, meditation and contemporary dance. Rajan intertwined this with studies in various martial arts which led him to Taichi. He then started training Xingyi at the real Taoism Studio with Master Chris Ray Chappell and progressed to becoming a full time teacher in the Internal Arts of Qigong and Taichi

Together with personal training and studies in applied anatomy and physiology, Rajan entered the world of physical rehabilitation and began to teach Internal Arts and mind-body practice.

The movement and physical rehabilitation methods he uses draw from both Eastern and Western approaches to mind-body training and focus on cultivating the mind, body, and energy.

“From the heart, we blissfully acknowledge the training and inspiration we have had from our teachers and mentors and hope that our many collaborations will continue. Thank you.”
