Your Tutor

Yau Yee Kay has been practicing and teaching Yang tai chi in Melbourne for over 40 years. He has been leading classes at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre, on and off since it opened in 1990. He brings a deep and passionate understanding of this ancient art to his students and offers classes from beginner to an advanced level. Regular practice of tai chi offers many health benefits, gently building strength, co-ordination, flexibility, balance, concentration and mindfulness. Beginners study the foundations of the slow form of Yang tai chi and can progress to learn a wide range of forms that include the full yang style slow form, the fast, sword, broad sword and fan forms. Yang style tai chi can be traced back to the 1800s and has been passed down from teacher to student in an oral tradition.   The particular form taught by Yee Kay Yau can be traced back to Dong Ying Jie who was a student of Yang Cheng Fu. It was passed to Mr Yau by Master Chen Fei who moved to Melbourne after studying with Dong Ying Jie in Thailand. Yee Kay Yau established the Melbourne Yang School in 1985 and has combined the practice and teaching of Tai Chi with his professional practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has taught both privately and through many organisations including the Council of Adult Education.
