While continuing her own practice of tài jí, she has worked as a primary school teacher, a full-time mural painter, and a stay-at-home mother who also ran her own face painting business.

Wendy has earned Tài jí instructor certification from the Canadian Taijiquan Federation (2012) and Masich Internal Arts (2015). Her own learning from Master Sam Masich, has inspired Wendy to reach out to people like you with a program that provides a meaningful and practical introduction to tài jí.

Wendy’s journey teaching Tài jí has followed her from Dufferin County and York Region, Ontario to Gatineau, Quebec. She has taught for tai chi centers, recreational programs, community events, in church basements and in parks, at women’s retreats, seniors’ residencies, in karate dojos and in the basement of her own home.
