Tai Chi for EnergyEnergising people of all ages

This exciting program consists of two different tai chi styles which create an uniquely powerful synergy.

Chen style is vigorous and sophisticated, containing fast and slow movements along with powerful spiral force. Sun style includes a unique qigong (life energy) along with agile steps. These two seemingly contrasting styles have complementary internal energy. Using his deep understanding of tai chi principles and with over 40 years of experience, Dr  Lam composed the Tai Chi for Energy set by combining both styles to bring you greater synergy.

With regular practice and in a relatively short period of time, you will achieve better health and wellness, more internal energy, and an improved ability to manage stress. 

The program contains warm up and cool down exercises and 16 movements.

Details

IMPORTANT DETAILS BELOW - PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY!

Dr Paul Lam, a retired family physician and tai chi master, has carefully combined movements from Chen and Sun styles to produce a powerful synergy in Tai Chi for Energy and Energy 2. These programs will improve your health and wellness, internal energy, and the ability to manage stress. TCE is a natural sequel of Tai Chi for Rehabilitation.

Virtual - What's Different?

1. You get to attend this workshop from the comfort of your own home or office!

2. Zoom Platform - Download the free Zoom app and review the tutorials so you will be familiar with it prior to the workshop. Senior Trainer Tracey will hold a Zoom Practice so you can practice various features and make sure you can be seen head to toe. This will be held Thursday Oct. 29, 7-8pm EDT.

3. Your Introductions - I will email you closer to workshop time to pair you with another participant. You will interview each other via email or phone, then introduce each other at the workshop.

4. Following the workshop, you will meet with the Master Trainer (Jocelyn) for an individual Zoom session where you will teach her "Single Whip" using the Stepwise Progressive Teaching Method and demonstrate the forms. If you are a new instructor candidate, you will have a follow up Zoom session a few weeks later.

5. Instead of the customary 15 minute tea breaks, we will have 5 minute breaks approximately every hour for a screen break. Please have a drink or snack nearby. We will have the customary 1 hour lunch break.

6. I will send you the TCE quiz to complete BEFORE the workshop, and you will email/mail me the completed quiz as well as a video of you performing the TCE/TCE2 forms. (This demonstration is preparatory and does not determine your certification.)

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 DVDs or online lessons.

Preparation

Prepare by working with the Tai Chi for Energy & Energy 2 DVDs or online lessons as much as possible. This 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 TCE/TCE2 forms and complete a written quiz prior to the workshop, due October 30.

The book Teaching Tai Chi Effectively will be our text for this workshop. Review of this text, and especially the chapters on safety, teaching effectively, Stepwise Progressive Teaching Method and Working with Chronic Conditions is part of your preparation.

Location

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.
