Mr Robin Simmons
I qualified in 1971 from the Carrington school. I was at once lucky enough to work at the International Academy of Continuous Education (directed by J.G.Bennett) which continued for 5 years. In 1972 I visited my T'ai Chi teacher in Amsterdam and found myself giving AT lessons to the top tutors and directors of the Amsterdam Theatre School. In 1982 I took over the school that was originally run by Betty Rajna & Paul Collins. I am still training teachers today at my studio in Zürich, Switzerland where I also run a private practice. From my training days I have always had an interest in the Dart Procedures and I have given several presentations on them at International Congresses and regularly teach them at my training school. I am also preparing a book about them. I met my Swiss wife Béatrice at an International Congess in 1991 and we married in '94. We now live near Brig. Since living in Switzerland I have studied Nordic Walking and am certificated to teach it. In 2006 I was invited by the Australian AT Society to give 8 workshops & the keynote speech at their Annual Conference in Sydney. In 2010 Béatrice and I gave seminars to groups of Swiss bus drivers - we saw over 300 drivers over several months. Béatrice and I hold AT workshops in the UK each year at Hawkwood College & also at a Yoga centre in Turkey. We are open to be invited to give workshops or private lessons on AT, T'ai Chi, Dart Evolution Procedures or Nordic Walking wherever someone would like us to do so.
