Course Description

​TaijiFit Instructor Training

TaijiFit International offers a professional Tai Chi teacher training program. We oversee the training and credentialing of Tai Chi teachers for veterans. We are the only educational course that has been recognized by all fitness certification organizations as well as the national association for acupuncture and Oriental medicine (NCCAOM). TaijiFit invites you to join the fastest growing network of certified Tai Chi instructors.

The TaijiFit Basic Instructor training will teach you how to lead others into a Tai Chi experience easily, effortlessly and enjoyably. Your students don't have to memorize any complex movements, principles or routines - and are never corrected or criticized.

 

You will learn how to lead a class based on a concept we call "FLOW," using our special cueing and assessment method. In the full training you'll learn all the essential techniques and philosophy of the method, along with a beginning repertoire of 18 movements, and two beginners' routines.
