“Awesome mountain retreat!”
Really enjoyed doing the five day mountain retreat with Dave and other like-minded people. Dave’s a patient teacher and I learnt more than just qi gong and tai chi forms and philosophy from him. The training took place in the midst of beautiful waterfalls, lakes and mountains in North Bali. He showed us a side of Bali not frequented by tourists, accommodation was wonderful, and the teaching was at the right level for me as a beginner though he would tailor to those who were more advanced. Would definitely recommend for anyone interested in learning more.

“5 Day Mountain Retreat”
Together with a friend, I decided to do the 5 days mountain retreat at the end of our Indonesian experience. This turned out to be a great decision. The mountain region surrounding Munduk was unlike anything I had ever seen before: such beautiful nature which you can enjoy without all the tourist you find in the south of Bali. For us, it was the first time taking tai chi lessons and Dave perfectly adjusted his lessons to our beginners-level. Next to the teaching, Dave is a great guy and I really enjoyed spending time together. I’ll definitely come back to Bali to visit this beautiful region and meet Dave again.

“Taichi & Qigong Workshop”
I do a lot of yoga and have wanted for some time to find out more about martial arts and especially Tai Chi and Qi Gong healing. Read a little and did a couple of taster sessions but did not feel much the wiser. Dave’s teachings met all my expectations – really clear explanations and definitions, and lots of practical exercises to get a feel for how it works. Tons of content, and brochure plus free PDF shared to help us remember and for further study. Felt the Qi. Would love to study further with Dave again. Highly recommended.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR & GUIDE
Experienced instructor and long time resident in Bali Dave West
guides you through the Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes and mountain treks, which he can modify for all ages and levels. Dave has been teaching Yang style Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong for over 10 years, and Sivananda Yoga for over 20 years. He specializes in sitting, standing and moving meditation, focusing the mind and breath to lead the qi, relaxing and balancing the body, mind and spirit. After consulting with modern and traditional masters, Dave believes these programs are easy to learn, bring rapid results, and are well-suited for people at different levels of health and fitness. Regular practice can energize your body, relax your mind, awaken your inner guru through conscious movement and energy interpretation, and lead to a more mindful and balanced lifestyle in harmony with the Tao. Dave lives, teaches and surfs in Bali.
