Trevor was our resident tai chi and chi gong teacher for many years, ran an organic farm, played in a local band and has an intimate knowledge of the area
Trevor has been involved in martial arts since he was 6 years old. As a child and teenager, he learned judo from his father, who is a Black Belt 3rd Dan. He has 22 years experience of tai chi and is a Registered instructor of The Tai Chi Union Of Great Britain. For the last five years he has also been studying Shotokai karate, in which he has reached brown belt level.
"In my life I've done many things. I started out as a mechanic and after finishing my aprenticeship traveled and worked all over Europe and the Middle East, ending up on the Isle of Skye where I lived in a commune for 6 years. It was there that I started to learn tai chi and have kids. After this I moved to Spain with my family where we bought an abandoned olive farm. We have been here 17 years now and gradually we have been restoring the land and house. In the process I worked restoring other old farms and assorted building projects until 7years ago, when I quit this line of work to focus more on tai chi and producing quality organic olive oil from our farm. I am also playing celtic music in a local band, which is another love of my life.
Along with Jenny, my partner, I'm involved in a tree planting association which was founded by the ex-manager of Cortijo Romero, Jordi Jutglar and myself, developed from an original idea of Alan Dale, the director of C.R. This project is also very exciting as I've always been passionate about all aspects of wood lands, forest renewal and conservation.
I am resident tai chi instructor at Cortijo Romero."
