During the last 26 years Rhonda Bailey at
Abundant Energy has developed and expanded her personal interests in Tai Chi and Qigong leading to an interest in energy cultivation techniques. She discovered Reiki along the way and found it a great complement to Tai Chi, particularly in its use of internal energy (qi) for maintaining good health.
In 1997 Rhonda began practising karate and within 5 years had achieved her 1
st Dan Black Belt. Two years later she reached 2 nd Dan level by which time she was fully involved in teaching her own karate classes. Rhonda maintained her practise of Tai chi throughout this period and left karate behind after 10 years in order to fully embrace the benefits of Tai chi and Qigong.

She completed the Advanced Instructors Training with the Chinese Internal Arts Association and continues her training with Eva and Karel Koskuba, attending classes, seminars and retreats as part of Continuous Professional Development.

Rhonda has attended seminars of Grand Master Chen Xiao-Wang and has trained with various Masters from the Chinese Health Qigong Association. She has also been on several training trips to China where she has had the privilege to study with top instructors.
