The Early Years

Angie with her husband Ken starting out in the catering Industry having acquired a love of cooking and hosting party’s. Then spending many years (30) as Independent gift and antiques retailers owning various gift and antique shops in Whitby and Scarborough, with the advent of the world wide web this lead to a whole new way of trading, which has led to an extended love and knowledge of antiques and collectables.

Later Years

On looking for something to give life a fuller meaning Angie came across the Art of T’ai Chi Ch’uan and after passing her Teaching Training in the Lee Style of Tai Chi in 2002 teaching weekly classes at the Tai Chi Workshops in Scarborough UK and has founded this website, now with the pandemic and its social distancing Angie has set up doing Zoom online classes for her regular students and  complete beginners courses in the Lee Style T’ai Chi at www.etaichi.co.uk
