Charlie Shovlin from Kilraine, Glenties has been teaching Tai Chi for many years. He is one of the founding pioneers of Tai Chi in Ireland and is one of the first Irishmen to publish a book on the subject. He has also produced a teaching video, which is currently on sale at selected outlets around the country. Charlie now teaches this gentle art for both recreational and therapeutic use all over Co. Donegal. He is a renowned healer and people travel from all ever the county and beyond, to his Castle Healing Centre in Kilraine. The author has made every effort to describe the exercises in as simple a way as possible, with the help of photographs and diagrams, and explains the health benefits that go with each posture. A novice would find the video “Tai Chi for Everyone” a useful accompaniment to the book.
