In 2000 she began a beginner’s class with Master Peng, taking a weekly class on and off for several years.

She has experience in teaching 8 and 24 forms, 30 fan and Taiji Hockey Stick.
In June 2011 Adele became certified to teach Taiji Qigong: Six Forms for Health and in August completed the 32 Sword, 8 Forms, 24 Forms and 48 Forms Taijiquan Workshops with Master Wu Zengle and Master Li Defang.
