What is the Self-paced Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention Instructor Training Workshop?

The Tai Chi for Arthritis program was created by Dr Paul Lam and his team of medical and tai chi experts 20 years ago. More than 30 medical studies have proven it to improve health and quality of life for almost anyone. Millions of people around the world have gained health benefits from it. That is why the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.gov), government agencies and arthritis foundations around the world support it. Tai chi is proven to improve immunity by about 50%. It also relieves stress and improves almost all aspects of health.

Dr Lam created this package with two stages. Stage 1: Fundamentals of Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention Instructor Training is a self-paced virtual program containing essential material to train effective and safe instructors. All you have to do is to follow the sequence with Dr Lam’s video guides for every step.

After completion of Stage 1, you will be ready for Stage 2 (a one or two day instructor training workshop to be eligible to become a Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI) Board Certified instructor). All TCHI Master Trainers around the world can conduct this workshop as listed online at the Tai Chi for Health Institute (tchi.org) website.

Suitable participants include health and fitness professionals or those with other similar qualifications and experienced tai chi students.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

When you register for this Stage 2 workshop, you will receive a link to the Stage 1 online package that you can complete in your own time. Do enroll asap because you must complete it before Stage 2. Depending on your experience, it may take anywhere from 10 to 70 hours.

This Stage 2 workshop is personal. The Master Trainer will work with you to answer your questions and help to improve your tai chi and ensure you can teach the program safely and effectively.

There will be discussions, practice sessions, sharing of skills  and knowledge, Question and Answer portions, and, most importantly, personal tuition. The Master Trainer will give you feedback on what you did well and how you can improve your tai chi and teaching skill  and connect you to the Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI), fellow instructors, Senior Trainers and offer continual support.

What is Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention?

Dr Paul Lam and his team of medical and tai chi experts designed this program to be safe and effective for people who are at increased risk of falling. It will also provide health benefits and improve almost anyone’s quality of life.

Based on the Sun style of tai chi, Tai Chi for Arthritis for Fall Prevention (TCAFP) is easy to learn, effective and safe. It improves flexibility, muscle strength, increases heart/lung activity, aligns posture, improves balance, and integrates the mind and body.

The TCAFP program includes warm up and cool down exercises, the teaching method, knowledge about arthritis and the cause of falls, and how to teach this program safely.  This program is the same as the Tai Chi for Arthritis program with the addition of a specialized module to further enhance its efficacy in preventing falls.

Qualified participants who successfully complete the course will be accredited by the Tai Chi for Health Institute to teach this program.

Thousands of people around the world have gained health benefits from the TCAFP program. Many scientific studies have shown that the program relieves pain, improves quality of life and makes people feel better. Studies also shown the program prevent falls; that is why the Center of Disease Control and Prevention recommends it for this purpose. It is supported by many Arthritis Foundations including the USA, Australia and UK.
