Tagan is a professional Acupuncturist, Capoeirista martial artist, and Qi Gong and Tai Qi practitioner, with a meditation practice based in Taoism. He has worked with vulnerable and incarcerated youth for over ten years, and integrates mindful Capoeira and Qi Gong into his Lineage classes. Tagan was born and raised in Jamaica, where he met with challenges in the public school system. Through his work with Lineage, he is inspired to reach youth who are experiencing similar systemic challenges, and offer them resources to manage stress and overcome obstacles.

In addition to teaching for Lineage, Tagan is a practicing acupuncturist. He believes that helping others to help themselves is the ultimate form of healing, and uses Qi Gong as part of his acupuncture treatments in order to empower his patients with their own methods of self-care. Tagan is a graduate of the Tri State College of Acupuncture.
