For a virtual ZOOM workshop ~ Please read the following instructions carefully!

New Instructors will need:

These can be purchased at  (20% discount code for products that can be used in this workshop is MTWS20) 

  • Spend at least 15-20 hours studying with Dr. Lam on either of the above videos learning and reviewing the warm-ups and TCA form before the workshop. 

  • Complete a short quiz during the workshop

  • Internet access on computer w/camera

  • Latest Free Version of ZOOM (many tutorials are available in ZOOM or YouTube)

  • To have a viewing area for Master or Senior Trainer to view the entire body profile from head to toes on camera when doing the form (please test this before the scheduled ZOOM session)

  • Potential new instructors will also be required to send a video of their form to the Master Trainer and schedule ZOOM time for post-workshop checks with Master Trainer.  Due to this being a virtual qualification workshop, these requirements are necessary. 

  • It is also recommended that before the first workshop meeting in ZOOM, each participant record a full body profile video of yourself doing the warm-ups & the form.  You can use your phone or computer w/camera and ZOOM to record the video.  The private video recording can be a great self-training and review tool.  You will improve your skills significantly after completing and reviewing your video.  This is also a great check for viewing your entire body in the ZOOM training sessions.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing and flat shoes suitable for exercise.
