Julia Rédei works as a Lecturer in German at Regent’s University London, and is a writer of short fiction and poetry. She hosts collaborative writing workshops and leads exploratory walks. Born in Germany, she lived in China in the 1980s and in the USA in the 1990s before moving to London in 1996. She has been practising yoga for over thirty years, and in 2013 she started studying Tai Chi and Chi Kung in the Wudang tradition, with regular training in London and residencies in the Wudang Mountains, China. She speaks German, English and Mandarin Chinese and is interested in the way the language we use while walking shapes our experience of movement and space.
