What is Wu Tao?
In the simplest terms, Wu Tao is a series of 5 powerful dances done to beautiful, original music and what it does is balances the energy (called Qi) in your body.

When your Qi is flowing properly it:
Wu Tao works on the Chinese Medicine system of energy flow through a network of channels, called meridians.
And these meridians connect with your internal organs.
The 5 dances of Wu Tao relate to the 5 elements and stimulate energy flow through their corresponding organs and meridian system.
So by doing Wu Tao you are stimulating and toning all the organs of your body, which helps to prevent disease and restore health to organs already out of balance.
And the beauty of Wu Tao is that the dances can be learned easily and enjoyed by anyone.
It only takes about half an hour to do a whole dance meditation.
Wu Tao Has Been Shown to….
And recent studies have confirmed the benefits of Wu Tao for dementia sufferers.

Wu Tao was developed in 2001 by Michelle Locke a West Australian ballet dancer and therapist.
Michelle Locke studied dance at the Victorian College of the Arts and The WA Academy of Performing Arts before joining the West Australian Ballet Co in 1984. Michelle suffered a back injury and was forced into early retirement in 1987, but after leaving the ballet company, embarked on a journey of healing and self-discovery. Looking to find some relief for her back pain, Michelle discovered Shiatsu, a Japanese form of massage. Impressed with the improvement in her back she went on to study it, along with other therapies including massage and oriental medicine. In 1993 on her return to WA, she founded the Shiatsu School of WA.
In 2000, after her second daughter Isabelle became seriously ill and was later diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, Michelle began her research into how to use dance for healing.
Weekly classes in Wu Tao are now held all over Australia, in many metropolitan suburbs and country areas, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Wu Tao teacher training is currently being offered in the major Australian State Capitals, New Zealand and other major international cities.

“Is Wu Tao like Tai Chi?”
While having the same benefits as Tai Chi moves, Wu Tao tones the body more, stretching out every muscle and joint gently and easily.
“Is Wu Tao like Nia, Chakra Dance, 5 Rhythms, and so on..?”
No. These are all free form styles and don’t offer the same healing, choreographed form of dance with beautiful original music composed to restore peace, energy and balance at every level.
“What Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities does Wu Tao use?”
Though it doesn’t use any of these modalities specifically, Wu Tao is similar to:
Because it works by stimulating the flow of Qi (life force energy) through the body.
“Do I have to be in shape to do Wu Tao?”
No, not at all. Wu Tao is very gentle and suitable for all ages and shapes.
Wu Tao is also an effective form of exercise for people with movement restrictions or other physical challenges.
“But I’m not a dancer..”
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before. You can do Wu Tao with 2 left feet! I promise.
“Am I too old/young to do Wu Tao?”
Absolutely not! It doesn’t matter what age you are.. Wu Tao works for everyone. We have people between the ages of 18 – 75 in our regular classes. In fact it’s offered in both primary schools and nursing homes! So you really are never too old or too young to benefit from Wu Tao.
“Do I need any special equipment?”
You don’t need any special equipment to do Wu Tao. You may like to use a towel or a blanket to lie on for the relaxation meditation at the end of the dances.. but I’m sure you have those in your home already!
Maybe you just feel.. off.
You know, that sort of..malaise you just can’t quite put your finger on.
There’s nothing wrong with you but you feel…
Maybe it’s the way the world is heading. All this technology. The disconnect from nature and each other.
And the constant Go! Go! Go! You’re trying to look after your little ones, be present for your loved ones and aware and conscious of your surroundings.
Really it’s no wonder you’re feeling out of balance.
The Air Dance stimulates Qi flow through your Lung and Large Intestine Channels, the ones responsible for helping you let go of what you don’t need physically and emotionally. There’s nothing like the feeling of being fully present and free from the past.
Restore your Life Energy
The Water Dance stimulates Qi flow through your Kidney and Bladder. These organs are responsible for building and storing vital energy. We will teach you how to build your energy through this beautiful dance.
Create What You Want
The Wood Energy in the body is responsible for free flowing Qi and Blood. If it’s blocked you won’t have access to the energy you need to create and express yourself! We’ll teach you how to free up this blocked energy and get you on purpose with your life through the energetic Wood dance!
Transform Yourself From the Inside Out
