There is a distinction between the student and instructor programs.
The principles, course content, and practice are the same in both programs.
The teacher’s program contains more advanced Qigong patterns and in-depth theory to study, as well as a minimum requirement of 200 hours of self-paced rigorous practice and training per series.
From Elementary (200 hours), Intermediate (200 hours), and Advanced (200 hours), the entire program level is covered (200hrs).
On completion of each level of achievement, the teacher’s course also provides for higher skill and ability progression assessment.
The trainee coach does this by submitting a video recording at the end of each level of practice.
Each course is tailored to a specific group of live teachers who have pre-registered for webinar access.
Why teach Classical Style Yang Tai Chi Quan?
Caters to aspiring healers, movement practitioners, health professionals
Classical Yang Tai Chi Quan is a 100% Tai Chi and Philosophy content-based program.
This is not a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)Program.
TCM is explained within the context of need and usage and will be expanded upon as a subject on its own where needed.
In one phrase, this program teaches the theory and practice of Vitality, Nourishing-Life-Enhancement, and Prevention Medicine.
Self-Care Longevity and the ability to awaken dormant human health and healing potential is the main focus.
Overall health includes not just the physical, but the psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual components of an individual’s well-being.
A Self-Paced progression is needed when learning with us.
On completion of each series, you will be certified to teach.
