Workshops and Training Opportunities

Invitation to Instructors Skills Practice
Calling all Tai Chi for Health Instructors to mark their calendars for August 15
​, 2015​
! You are invited to attend our All Island Instructors Skills Practice.
Often, I hear from you that you wish for more practice with form, principles, breath work and teaching method. I agree with you that practicing with fellow instructors, free to share information and questions, takes our tai chi practice to a different level. Therefore, from 2:30 - 5:30 at the Leeward YMCA
  • I will lead a review of TCA's Basic Six (both sides), Advanced and Final Nine movements. 
  • Tai Chi Principles will be incorporated and Stepwise Teaching Method will be practiced. 
  • An Open Session will allow discussion on your teaching concerns, networking and current TCHI news with the State of Hawaii.
  • This is a time for you to express ideas or concerns on increased teaching and training opportunities. Basically, how can we be more connected as instructors.
Depending on the response, I will decide how much time will be allotted to each topic.
This is a time of learning, but also coming together to share and meet each other. I understand some of you may be due for Update, but that is okay. Please feel welcome!
In meeting with the recommendations of the Institute's Education division for Skills Training, I will be charging a fee. However, I am reducing the standard $25 fee to $10. My intention is to have as many of you meet each other and practice tai chi. Of course, I will be making suggestions on how to improve or develop your practice.
As always, Tea and Snacks will be provided!
For our neighbor islands instructors, I understand you may not have enough time to plan. An October Skills Practice is pending.
The deadline for registration is August 1, 2015
​You may do so by responding directly to me at taichialoha@gmail.com. Fees will be $25 after the deadline. Fees will be collected at time of check in.​
