Pamela had several teachers connected to Cheng Man Ching. The first and in some ways the most important teacher was Dr. John Kells of The British Tai Chi Chuan Association; a senior student of Dr. Chi Chiang Tao. His soft approach to the Pushing Hands practice is the basis of the practice at Norsk Taiji Senter.

After 10 years she was lucky enough to be introduced to Grandmaster Benjamin Pang Jeng Lo; one of Master Cheng’s closest students. Master Lo had numerous courses in Norway and was strong influence in developing Taiji (Tai Chi) practice in Norway.

A few years later Pamela was introduced to Grandmaster William C. C. Chen, and his system of Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) and Body Mechanics. In more recent years she studied with Master Wee Kee Jin a senior student of Grandmaster Huang from Malaysia.

Other influences

Pamela also met Qigong Master Zhi Xing Wang who opened up a deeper dimension on transforming and working with Qi (Chi). This brought more insight and perspective within the spiritual aspect of the Dao (Tao).
