Instructor – Tom Gold-Blyth

Married, with two children and living in Headington,  I am blessed to work full time as a Tai Chi teacher, and enjoy regularly meeting with the Instructor Team of Golden Flower Tai Chi UK to train and practice.  (Member of the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain). I spend as much time as I can with my teachers (Master San Gee Tam and Annukka) in recent years this has been 4 weeks of training per year.

Dedicated to health and personal growth

With 20 years of Tai Chi practice I am an ‘inner circle’ student of Master San Gee Tam and a leader in the International Golden Flower Tai Chi School. The deep knowledge of Tai Chi passing to me from San Gee and Annukka is the synthesis of lineage Tai Chi from two renown Masters – Chu King-Hung and Dong Zheng-Chen.  My focus is on development of health and fitness, inner peace and enlightenment.  I  learn, practice and teach Tai Chi as a method of spiritual development and as an internal martial art system with less focus on fighting/self-defence.  Having made a serious study of Standing Qigong through ongoing daily practice for 20 years, I enjoy practicing an ever broadening variety of forms, exercises, meditations and breathing methods – including 5 Tai Chi Forms, Pushings Hands, Bagua, Hsing-Yi, Weapons and most importantly Being Here Now!


I love working with people and teach full curriculum Golden Flower classes to students up to and beyond instructor level.

I have developed a specialism in Qi for mental health as the Khiron House Tai Chi teacher for  6 years.  I am constantly profoundly moved by the resilience of the human spirits I work with there.

The Golden Flower School is all about self cultivation and I am learning, practicing and teaching practical ways to apply Tai Chi principles to everyday life especially communication, self enquiry and understanding life processes.  I am very hopefull for the ‘flowering of humanity’ and am trying to be the change that I want to see in the world!


Instructor – Marie Carty


Marie started with the Golden Flower School 9 years ago and has studied intensively with Tom since then.  In 2011 Marie began studying directly with Master San Gee Tam and Chief Instructor Annukka and in 2014 became an Instructor.  Marie has great knowledge of Tai Chi movement and structure and is integrating more and more Qi. She has reached a stage in her practice where she is addressing the deeper aspects of self- cultivation.  Her dedication to the art is inspiring.

Marie assists with the leading of the Thursday class, and teaches her own classes in the Witney area – see Dancing with T’ai Chi

  1. hello, I am trying to get in touch with the Tai Chi teacher from Shambala and think it is possibly Tom, but am not sure from the photo and film. This is John Hegley. Thank you.
