I couldn’t be more happier about the choice I made by joining this school. The classes with no exceptions are always great fun also they are never the same. Every time is different experience and every time I learn something new. Many times after the classes I am left with a feeling of like I have worked out in the gym and in the same time relaxed and with clear mind as I had meditate for a hour. Our coach Barry is a wonderful man with lots of knowledge and experience. I am very grateful to him and to his team. If you think about joining his school don’t think. Just join and you will see.

Barry is a dedicated and inspirational teacher who treats beginners with the same dedication and enthusiasm as experienced attendees. Barry's years of experience, expertise and passion make for a varied and great learning experience, no two classes are ever the same, his interesting and eclectic music selection really adds to the enjoyment. Highly recommended. More...

It is difficult to put into words what makes these classes so great. Barry has an eclectic teaching style which means that every class is different, always exciting and always interesting. Learning quickly is not the point, learning well with depth, integrity and understanding very much is. I really cannot recommend these classes highly enough. More...

A brilliant, welcoming way in to learning the practice, not just the tai chi form but aspects of the philosophy and history behind it. Barry is an inspirational and down to earth teacher who makes each class both fun and the right amount of challenging! More...

I have met many teachers and mentors both in martial arts and in academia. Barry McGinlay is definitely one of the most inspiring persons I have ever met. Although I am grateful for my great local teacher in Finland, I would love to visit Barry's school in London. If you want to practice tai chi in London, this is the place to be. More...

I only started a few weeks ago but I have already learned so much. Specifically the Form but also the History, Philosophy and Ethics of Tai Chi. I came on a recommendation and it is one of the best things I have done for my mind and body. More...

Being a student with Tai Chi Life School has given me an outlook on what it is to be focused, still and respectful. Classes can be hard work and sometimes it can leave you feeling disheartened, but you come back more determined to get it right.I have been with other schools before, where it is following the teacher to do qi gong, or copying the steps of the form, but Barry will invest the time to help and challenge you develop an understanding of this profound and ancient exercise. I would recommend this school to anybody who is not afraid to work hard or to confront yourself through taijiquan. More...

Barry is one in a million!At Tai Chi Life School if you work hard you will get a lot back in return. More...

Barry is simply an incredible coach and teacher. He knows so much it can almost be overwhelming - but it's presented with simplicity, and balanced with empathy, and understanding. Every class is both challenging and rewarding, and he always has a new exercise or a new perspective to mix things up and keep them interesting. As a beginner, I genuinely feel deeply privileged to have this opportunity: for anyone really serious about Tai Chi, I can't imagine an instructor better able to help you achieve your potential.

I walked through the doors of Tai Chi Life School 13 years ago and never looked back. A new world unfolded for me and Tai Chi has done so much for me on so many levels. It has kept me sane in very stressful and demanding jobs, and has shown me ways to live a balanced and happy life. Physically I have never felt better and fitter. Barry has created an inclusive and warm environment where everybody is welcome and encouraged to realise their full potential. He has a unique talent and gift to get the best out of everyone, to challenge and develop his students. His teaching is fun, clear, simple and of the highest standard. Barry covers all aspects of Tai Chi - health, relaxation, fitness, martial - so there really is something for everyone. More...

He knows how the human body moves and is able to translate this into training.Apart from this he is also a very enthusiastic coach who really knows how to motivate and he brings the best out of his students, at every level.He is also very dedicated to his sport what made him a world champion and an inspiration to all Tai Chi practitioners that I met from all over the world.

I’ve been learning Tai Chi with Barry for a year and half. I have learnt so much about myself and it has had such a positive effect for my mind and body. Barry and the teachers are friendly and dedicated experts in their field and know when you need to be pushed. Whatever you put in you get so much back and there’s a broad range of classes to pick from. I would highly recommend anyone in giving it a try! More...

I would highly recommend this class, it's the best part of my week. More...

Just done a pads class here today with master barry, if you enjoy a good workout then this is the place to go. There are also many classes at shaolin temple uk, this is also another place with lots of great opportunities at learning new skills.

Practising Taichi and Qigong has been life changing for me, it has improved my health, strength, flexibility and patience tremendously. Barry's training style incorporates the ancient roots of this internal Chinese martial art and makes it relevant in todays busy modern world that we live in. All of the teachers from the Taichi life school have aided greatly in my development so far and I can honestly say It is an honour to be a member of the school. There are classes to suit everybody's schedule and level and if your still reading this I urge you to put your gym membership on the sideline for a few months so you can come and see what its all about. Every time we train something magical happens. You wont be disappointed! Hope to see you in class soon. More...
