THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM MARCH 14-15 DUE TO COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS. BOTH IN PERSON AND VIRTUAL OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE. THIS REGISTRATION IS FOR THE VIRTUAL WORKSHOP TO BE HELD AUGUST 1-2. THE IN PERSON WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD AUGUST 22-23 IN COVINGTON GA.
Dr Paul Lam, a retired family physician and tai chi master, led a team of tai chi and medical specialists to create this program. Tai Chi for Diabetes is easy to learn and designed to prevent and improve the control of diabetes. The program will help minimize the risk of complications of diabetes by improving heart/lung function, muscular strength, flexibility, balance, and stress reduction. Diabetes Australia gave its support to this program because of its efficacy and safety.
The Tai Chi for Diabetes program is based on Sun and Yang style tai chi. Besides the fundamental 11 movement tai chi, it contains an advanced 9 movement set, warm-up, wind down and Qigong breathing exercises.
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.
Prepare by working with the new updated Tai Chi for Diabetes DVD or online lessons as much as possible. It will enable you to gain the maximum benefits and enjoyment from this workshop. This preparation is required for those seeking certification. You will need to submit a video of the TCD forms and complete a written quiz prior to the workshop, due July 18.
The book Teaching Tai Chi Effectively and the Tai Chi for Diabetes Handbook will be our texts for this workshop. Review of these texts, and especially the chapters on safety, teaching effectively, Stepwise Progressive Teaching Method and Working with Chronic Conditions is part of your preparation.
The dvd and texts 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.
Wear loose comfortable clothes and flat shoes suitable for exercise.

This is a virtual workshop using the Zoom platform. Please download Zoom (you may use the free version). If you haven't used this platform before, Zoom provides videos to help you learn how it works. This is HIGHLY recommended. Find a space in your home suitable for practice, and experiment with Zoom so you learn how to stay within the frame. I will need to see you head to toe. I recommend using painter's tape on the floor to outline the area you will need to stay within. You may also use an appropriate sized area rug. If available, I recommend using a USB connection to a larger screen or your television, so you have a larger image.
