Lily holds a 3rd Duan in Health Qigong from the Chinese Health Qigong Association. She has been studying Chinese Martial Arts since 2002 having been inspired by her very first workshop with Grand Master Liu Jinru on Cheng Style Baguazhang (Eight Trigram Palm) and has never looked back.

The majority of her early training was under the guidance of Master Liu Deming, 5th Generation inheritor of the Liu He Zi Ran Men lineage where she continued to study her beloved Cheng Style Baguazhang along with Taijiquan. She also had the great privilege of undergoing intensive training programs with a variety of great Chinese masters including Professor Yang Li of Beijing Sport University and Master Qin Guang Cheng, to whom she became an interpreter for his workshops throughout Australia.
