Tai Chi for Energy

Instructor Certification Workshop

 

What is Tai Chi for Energy?

The Tai Chi for Energy programme consists of two different tai chi styles. Chen style tai chi 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 of tai chi have complementary internal energy. Using his deep understanding of tai chi principles and with over 40 years of experience, Dr Lam carefully 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 programme contains warm up and cool down exercises and 16 movements.

Who will Benefit?

Anyone can benefit from coming to this workshop. You will enjoy learning this short but beautiful set of tai chi with two powerful styles. With regular practice, you will gain inner strength, stronger muscles, and stronger Qi relatively quickly. You will be able to develop complexity and stronger Jing (force) from learning this program. Tai Chi for Energy is especially useful for people who have learned one or more of the Tai Chi for Health programs.

Reasons to Come:

  • Learn an exciting tai chi program that is suitable for a wide range of people.
  • Suitable for younger learners who are looking for something challenging
  • Learn how to teach tai chi effectively
