Information

Details

Dr Paul Lam, a retired family physician and tai chi master, led a team of tai chi and medical specialists to create this evidence based program. It is easy, enjoyable and safe for people with arthritis to learn. Medical studies have shown the program to relieve pain for people with arthritis and improve their quality of lives, as well as prevent falls for older adults.  For this reason, the Arthritis Foundations around the world and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are giving it their full support. Although especially effective for arthritis and fall prevention, it is a great start for beginners to improve health and wellness. 

Who Can Come?

Anyone with or without prior tai chi experience can attend this workshop. Preparation is strongly recommended and required for Board Certification.  It will take from 20 hours to 200 hours to prepare depending on your experience in tai chi and health education. For example an experienced tai chi practitioner would not need as much time (about 15 to 30 hours) to learn the program from the instructional DVD or online lessons.

Preparation

Prepare by working with the Tai Chi for Arthritis and Seated Tai Chi for Arthritis DVDs or online lessons as much as possible. This will enable you to gain the maximum benefits and enjoyment from this workshop, and also increase your opportunity to be certified as an instructor. If you are not prepared to be certified at the workshop, you will have 2 weeks following the workshop to complete requirements. There is an additional fee for post-workshop certification.

The book Teaching Tai Chi Effectively and the Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention Handbook are our texts for this workshop. Review of these texts, especially the chapters on safety, teaching effectively, Stepwise Progressive Teaching Method and Working with Chronic Conditions is part of your preparation.

The dvd and text are available at www.taichiproductions.com. Paid participants receive a 20% discount.  A code will be given to you when your booking is confirmed and payment received. Order by December 31 and receive a 35% discount off the dvd or online lessons using code HOLIDAY35.
