Many top-level managers understand the importance of managing the stress levels at work and at home
- but there's a huge problem....
THEY'RE AFRAID IT IS WAY TOO DIFFICULT
Many top-level managers believe that learning martial arts is outside their comfort zone and is not feasible for people who have a sedentary jobs.
THEY'RE AFRAID IT WILL TAKE TOO MUCH TIME
Time is the most precious asset for top managers and so it must be handled very carefully. They cannot afford to lose this precious time.
THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN IT AND ARE AFRAID IT WILL NOT WORK
Most managers think that you have to believe in it and be open to it. If not, it will never work.
I want to show you that there's an easier way.
Tai Chi will lead your journey to more happiness and well-being.
Sometimes you can relax well by going to the sauna for a long time and ordering a good massage. Even when you have taken a brisk walk on a Sunday afternoon, you feel so relaxed and happy. How nice would it be to keep this feeling, even on a Monday morning, after reading a mountain of new emails?
Correctly performing Tai Chi will relieve stress in your body.
How to stop worrying?
Everyone feels anxious from time to time. Occasional anxiety is a normal reaction to uncertainty about what will happen next, whether that’s in the next few minutes, days, or months. Mental health experts define anxiety as worry over a threat that’s still in your future. Thinking about a conversation you dread, for example, could twist your stomach into knots days before it happens. Your heart may race before an exam or presentation. You might lie awake at night worrying about whether you’ll catch COVID-19 at the grocery store.
Tai Chi will help you to relieve worrying and anxiety.
How You React to Stress?
You are gradually noticing that you can no longer tolerate the constant presence of stress at work. You see that you are less tolerant towards your children and partner, which you never had before. Is it the age, or is there something else going on? Every physical pressure and emotional and psychological pressure lead to the same stress response in our body.
In our Tai Chi training program, I show you how we can resist this stress response.
How to manage stress?
Stress is everywhere and always. I have seen so many of my former colleagues getting sick from the stress. Is there a simple way how to deal with burnout? Stress is not always a bad thing, you need stress to get moving, but always too much stress leads to severe energy loss and even burnout. Learn how to deal with this in our unique training program.
Benefits of Tai Chi
While tai chi has been developed as a form of martial arts, almost all people can take advantage of its benefits. These include:
- Improves muscular strength and definition
- Improves balance and flexibility
- Enhances endurance and stamina
- Enhances aerobic conditioning
- Can help with weight loss
- It helps alleviate back pain
- Boosts cardiorespiratory function
- Improves cognitive function
- Improves sleeping patterns
- Reduces stress levels
- Helps combat fibromyalgia
- Decreases anxiety, mild depression, and mood disorders
To make the most of these health benefits, you need to be consistent with your tai chi movements. And, of course, you’d want to perform these movements precisely, which is why this online training program has been developed.
Tai Chi vs Yoga
Tai chi and yoga have a lot of similarities. Often considered as cousins in the fitness space, both of these exercises are perfect for people of all ages. There are three things at the centre of tai chi and yoga: meditation, deep breathing, and motion sequences. Combining all three will provide massive benefits both for your physical and mental wellbeing.
But most people often wonder which is better, tai chi or yoga?
Generally speaking, tai chi focuses on one slow, continuous sequence. Meanwhile, yoga is centred on poses and maintaining these poses for several seconds or minutes.
So which is best for you?
It depends on your age, health, and overall physical conditioning. Both yoga and tai chi are pretty easy at the beginner level. As the intensity grows, however, you’ll find that tai chi is more demanding than Yoga. This isn’t surprising, given tai chi has been developed as a form of martial arts. Tai chi and yoga are incredibly beneficial regardless of your physical capacity.
Just make sure to take each Tai Chi form and sequence easily to avoid injury.

How It Works
Movement --> Sensitivity --> Relaxing --> More Energy
My goal is to improve the lives of thousands of people, by boosting their health and energy level and at the same time reducing stress. Authentic Tai Chi will help to increase the sensitivity of your body, allowing you to understand the tension of the muscles.
The fundamental principle is to accelerate the closed-loop whereby Tai Chi movements (Short Yang Form) are the centrepiece of the engine. Tai Chi movements executed correctly will increase the Sensitivity, this seeds more Relaxation. This stress reduction on the other hand will boost your Energy. The circle is closed.
What’s different from other learning platforms?
Online versus Classroom
It must be clear that the most efficient way of learning is to follow live classes with a certified trainer.
Why not Youtube or Vimeo?
Both have a massive amount of excellent videos, however not ordered on different experience levels. How to find your way and how to prevent drowning in a swamp of videos?
All videos are crisscrossed together. If you start reading, you will not start with Macbeth, but start with a first children’s book. I will group my training into three main categories: Novice, Advanced and Master. Even within a category, I will bundle the video’s on the different topics: Health (i.e. frozen shoulder), Spiritual (Energy fields), Scientific publications.
Start from scratch
Our platform offers you a step-by-step approach starting from scratch. Even for an experienced user, I strongly recommend starting the training from the beginning.
By doing Tai Chi, I bring my attention to myself, to my core, which gives me peace and connection with myself. As a result, I listen to myself, to what the outside world is doing to me. Tai Chi is a complement to meditating from a seated position. It puts me literally and figuratively in motion.
For me, Tai Chi means coming back to myself, relaxing and enjoying and leaving the hectic of the day behind me, out of my head and into my feet and feeling my body again. Also, the exercises together with another are sometimes confronting or sometimes very beneficial. I sleep better at night after an hour of Tai Chi. If work permits, I do a Tai Chi exercise. I am trying to feel my feet, bending my knees, and relaxing my shoulders. This way, I stay more connected to myself and others. It is a must for everyone.
Years ago I came into contact with Tai Chi, it gave me satisfaction and a good feeling, but unfortunately, times changed, and it was not close. I read that Tai Chi was also taught in Belgium and Budel, so I started in Belgium with a friend. This is how we ended up with Dirk and Noella, and they are a married couple who radiate peace and explain the steps well in a pleasant way. We soon felt at home there. We enjoyed it, it is certainly recommended even if you have complaints and / or defects, you will soon notice that it is good for your body
What is Tai Chi for me? When I get that question, I think in the first place of relaxation, both mentally and physically. During the exercises, the daily things disappear into the background. It is a moment where my attention is drawn to the practices, breathing, attention, and movements that let go of worries and worries for a moment. Physically, relaxation is about releasing conscious and unconscious tension in the muscles, in the entire musculoskeletal system.
For me, Tai Chi is a process of awareness, a journey of discovery within myself. By scanning my body, I gain insight into specific aches or tensions in my body. I gradually realized that I can move my body differently, unlike how I used to do it unconsciously until now. These small discoveries help me to be critical of my posture during my daily activities. They help me to change habits in my posture and movements to reduce everyday aches and pains. Awareness also takes place at the level of thinking. Tai Chi teaches me to direct my attention. I can then use this on a mental and physical level. Another challenge from Tai Chi is learning to use the energy differently. There is always an interaction in energy, attention, and movement. New sensations trigger me to keep practising.
Working with the form in a group gives a feeling of connection. While everyone practices for himself, we move in the same cadence. We look for the same energy. You are only as an individual but connected with each other in the same endeavour.
Tai Chi is never finished for me. It remains a learning process about myself and about how we live life. Sometimes it is just a moment of relaxation, other times it is a deep digging into myself or a search for energy in and around my being. Tai Chi adds something to my life.
Dirk takes you into the special world of Tai Chi. He guides you to more depth, relaxation, and insight in a patient and passionate way. You can also apply the exercises you learn to face or transcend the difficulties in daily life and thus grow into a better version of yourself.
How did I get started? Through various encounters, teaching moments with Jef Crab it became clear to me that bodywork, body awareness improves the quality of my life / my day. Jef Crab is a perfect example and a real source of inspiration to integrate the Tai Chi principles into my daily life. I met Dirk through Jef. Taking lessons with Dirk is very familiar because many exercises are recognizable. The eNRBi exercises are, in a sense, Tai Chi exercises.
The hour of Tai Chi with Dirk is very pleasant, and it is a rest point in my week. Often, I fall asleep better after this hour, and my sleep is more restful. My rhythm has slowed down after an hour of Tai Chi. Very pleasant.
Definitely recommended to join a Tai Chi class, very relaxing, and you become more aware of your own body. Very nice group and very inspiring teacher.
By doing Tai Chi, I bring my attention to myself, to my core, which gives me peace and connection with myself. I, therefore, listen to myself, to what the outside world is doing to me. Tai Chi is an addition to meditating from a seated position. It literally and figuratively sets me in motion.
Tai Chi has taught me to fully relax again after I had to deal with burnout. It has also helped me with a number of physical tension complaints. The soft slow movements and learning to work with your attention brings me into a deeper relaxation to which my body responds gratefully. Dirk is a good teacher and radiates an enormous calmness, he also explains the exercises in easily understandable language and he can visualize certain feelings by giving examples.
