About Jayne Storey


Jayne began her Tai Chi journey in 1987, studying at the International Tai Chi Chuan Association in London, with Master Chu King Hung, disciple of Yang Sau Chung. She went on to study with the Hine Institute in Kent, developing her understanding of this soft-style martial art as well as her interest in Chi Kung (posture training) and Ch’an (Chinese Zen) Meditation.

In 2008 she began training with Kevin Bryant (Founder, Surrey Tai Chi Club) in the original Yang (Yeung) -family Tai Chi under the direction of Yeung Ma Lee, granddaughter of the famous Tai Chi Grandmaster Yang (Yeung) Cheng Fu.

She offers 1-1 tuition at a private training facility on the Berks / Hants border for students interested in deepening their study of this art and for those wishing to qualify to teach Tai Chi for Health.

Over the last 30 years, Jayne has continued her daily practice and teaching, from which she has created an innovative training method to help sports-people and performing artists deliver fluid motion in high pressure situations. Together with 18 years independent research and development, Jayne has developed the unique Chi-Performance methodology which is now trusted and proven to reduce mental interference, control anxiety, strengthen the mind~body connection and help access ‘the zone’ of relaxed concentration conducive to elite performance in competitions, tournments and other high-pressure situations. 

Jayne created the world’s first Tai Chi-based golf performance method (originally called Chi-Power GOLF) to be officially recognised by the golf industry in 2006.

Since then, Chi-Performance GOLF has been incorporated into the Professional Golfers’ Association CPD programme, being one of a number of innovative methods that currently forms part of the PGA’s Member Education Programme. If you are a PGA professional and would like to find out more about Jayne’s course for 2018 “Mind~Body Connection and the Effortless Golf Shot“, please contact Nikki Roden nikki.roden@pga.org.uk for further details.

The method has also been endorsed by Peter Hudson, President of the World Golf Teachers’ Federation (GB&I) who commented:

Every now and then someone comes along that makes a difference, seeing things from a fresh perspective, adding new meaning, achieving creativity out of knowledge while bringing inspirational new material to a well-known field. Jayne Storey is such a figurehead. The golfer now has an opportunity for change and improvement in a unique way that also manages the whole person rather than any individual part. I highly recommend you take any and every opportunity to work with Jayne using any of her programmes”.

Jayne is a long-term member (and former Executive Committee Member) of the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain

About Jayne Storey’s Chi-Performance Method 

Jayne’s Chi-Performance methodology brings sports-people and performing artists the experience of spontaneous excellence, resulting in effortless motion, such as the perfect golf shot or the unreturnable backhand pass in tennis.

It is achieved through ancient movement principles and deep practice techniques such as attention training, breathing exercises, applied mindfulness, postural training, awareness, slow motion drills, visualization and more, to help strengthen the mind~body connection, especially when the pressure is on.

The latest research in both neuroscience and sport-science confirms the benefits of Jayne’s unique approach for achieving ‘the zone’ or flow-state of relaxed concentration, necessary for superior performance in competitions and tournaments.

Jayne was a feature writer for Golf International magazine from 2008 -2014. The editors have now created a new magazine entitled Atlantic Golf, for which Jayne contributes an article each issue. Read Jayne’s piece ‘Attention! Focus Only on the Positives‘ in the digital version of the launch issue (pp 20-21).
