What you'll do

Step into a new day, from your living room onto the Australian beach near Byron Bay. I will take you to my favourite spot on the beach where we will get to know each other and I'll share this incredible movement practice with you. Prepare to be inspired and to leave feeling light and relaxed.

The practice is called Calligraphy Qigong and its main purpose is to enhance your energy to prolong life, but it does so much more than that. It will challenge each person in a unique way, for some it will be your body, others, your mind. In a very gentle way, it expands the pattern of movements that every human does on a day to day basis. The best part is, anyone can do it, standing or sitting, even injuries can be adapted for. Keep an open mind and you will learn something new.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

If there isn’t a suitable time for you, let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate.

I’m an Australian wheelchair tennis champion. I competed in two Paralympics—London and Rio—and was ranked #8 in the world.

At age 13, I began a three-year battle with cancer. The only way to save my life was to remove the right half of my pelvis. I was in a wheelchair for many years, but secretly always wondered if I’d be able to walk long distances again.

Through this incredible movement practice, not only did I walk again, but I put my wheelchair away and went on to hike one of the hardest treks in the world, the Kokoda Track.

In addition to giving me back my mobility, the practices healed the chronic pain I lived with for 15 years. There's nothing I love more than practicing on the beach.

Adam is a one in a million kind of individual. His story of trials and tribulations, from rock bottom to the summit, his personal perseverance and drive to get where he is today brought a tear to everyone's eye and filled our hearts.

Highly recommend attending this event. Not only will you have the opportunity to hear a powerful life story and how unexpected challenges can be wonderful life opportunities if opened, but you will also learn mindful movement and Calligraphy Qigong. Adam was thoughtful throughout the experience and engaging which is not easy on the virtual space. We all could use five minutes of our lives to slow down and be present and aware in the moment and Adam does help giving us a start. Again, highly recommend this experience - does not matter experience level on the subject, overall great event.

Adam is an inspiration! And he masters the activity using new concepts of meditation and yoga. Great talk followed by a quite unique activity experience. Thank you!

This was the first time we took a session with someone on Airbnb and it was a beautiful experience! We started learning a new practice and it was such an inspirational story!

You cannot learn about techniques in 1hr. However, what made this unique is learning personal experience and how Adam overcame them. This is very inspiring and highly recommend.
