My name is Lucia Ring-Watkins. I have been studying Tai Chi and Qi Gong for 15 years - including 2 years full time study in China’s Wudang mountains - and now run a school in London called Wudang Pai Kung Fu GB. My background is the hectic world of international news which can be both stressful and competitive. My training helps me stay centred amidst chaotic circumstances and ensures I do not miss the opportunity for a good story or to enjoy life while I work.

Your team will learn slow and soothing movements to calm and focus the mind, do partner work exercises to improve communication and teambuilding, and run through the movements together to improve group awareness.
Centred around initially learning a set of simple exercises, your team will get an in depth look at the benefits mindful movement can provide. Each week we look at these exercises through a different lens: focus, being centred, awareness, intuition, adaptation, and flow.
The team will learn a set of fluid movements to alleviate stress and encourage innovation in daily working life. Discounts are available for block bookings. A lengthy period of supervised study can help your team make finding flow become a habit.
Free taster session available for all classes

You know when you are working on a project and you get that moment of pure clarity? Everything fits together – everything flows. Is it a while since this last happened with your team?
London is exciting, but the fast pace of life here can take its toll. Stress overwhelms the mind, represses the immune system and causes tension in the body. Moreover, it prevents the free flow of ideas between people. What can be done about this?
At Flow Together, we start by focussing on the body, teaching fluid movements from the ancient art of Tai Chi in the workplace. These calm the mind and allow us to look within, increasing confidence and boosting mental and physical resilience, as the medical case studies below prove.
Through meditation in movement, Flow Together aim to improve health, life satisfaction and awareness. With increased awareness of self, others, and the world around us – we find flow. The team that flows together stays together, and works more productively. That’s good news all round.
