Lead others in the mind-body practices of Tai Chi with confidence and ease.
Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leaders are not required to master a traditional 108 movement Tai Chi form or even the shortened form to receive and share the health benefits of Tai Chi! Tai Chi Easy™ is a carefully developed method and approach to Tai Chi and Qi (Chi) cultivation, based on revered traditional principles, that make it easy, effective and safe! We have trained absolute beginners as well as experienced Tai Chi practitioners and teachers.
Tai Chi Easy™ is not "just" an exercise program that uses gentle movement to increase joint flexibility, circulation, range of motion and to maintain muscle strength. Harvard calls Tai Chi "meditation in motion," as the slow movements and mindset of Tai Chi can be used to manage stress levels by creating a a heightened sense of self awareness, mindfulness, empowerment and choice. The mind-body practices of Tai Chi Easy™ soothe and rewire the nervous system and increase cognitive and brain plasticity
Our Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leader Training is a step-by-step program detailing how to share simple Qigong and Tai Chi to improve health, enhance longevity and promote inner peace, in our communities, schools, faith institutions, hospitals, community centers, and social service agencies. Tai Chi Easy™ is a safe activity for those with chronic health conditions and physical limitations.
