"Enlarge your circle"
Stephanie Hunt - "Steph" - joined her first class back in March 2008: "I was looking for some gentle exercise at the time. I can remember quite enjoying the lesson but wasn't sure whether I wanted to pursue the art. As I couldn't think of a good enough reason not to come to the next lesson, I kept coming back!
"Time passes and I'm still getting physical exercise, mental exercise and a whole load of fun...this for me has been a slow learning process with just about everything being absorbed gradually. I must have come a long way though as teaching was the furthest thing from my mind when I found the Surrey Tai Chi website all those years ago. It was certainly one of my better decisions to make that first contact."
Steph served 14 years with the Royal Navy and has been a civil servant for the last 22 years. She is married and a lover of cats.
