T’ai Chi Chih Intensive

July 22 –25, 2021 Via Zoom

Led by Sandy McAlister, TCC Teacher Trainer

Hosted by April Leffler, Assistant Teacher Trainer


Designed for teachers, teacher candidates and serious students.

The focus of the Intensive will be on How to Move well for the greatest flow of Chi.

 Flowing from the Center, Yinning and Yanging correctly, and Moving with Softness

The heart of the Intensive will be refining and deepening your T’ai Chi Chih practice.

Teachers will also learn to develop a discerning eye for seeing what corrections students need, as well as knowing when they are ready for Teacher Accreditation…and when they are not. You will have a wonderful opportunity to connect with Pam and receive feedback.

Teacher Candidates will receive excellent preparation for the Teacher Training course, and leave knowing what you still need to work on before attending accreditation.

Serious Students (who have practiced regularly for at least a year) will immerse yourself in T’ai Chi Chih, gaining a greater Chi flow, as well as a deeper understanding and appreciation of this beneficial practice.

Limited to 18 participants, so reserve your space now!


Intensive begins Thursday, July 22 at 8am PDT.  Plan to arrive between 7:30 and 7:45 am to check in via Zoom. Thursday thru Sunday hours are 8:00 am to 5:30 pm (PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME) with a lunch break. Note that it will be a full day on Sunday instead of ending at noon as Intensives usually have. Since folks often live in all time zones at these events, it is highly recommended that you set a small clock near your computer to Pacific Daylight Time to keep everyone on the same page.

Tuition for this four day course is still only $250.

Scholarships: Scholarships may be available for up to $125 per person for Intensives and are based on financial need. The course host approves the scholarship request based on availability of funds. Please inquire about scholarship availability with the course host who will send you an application form.

This will be an online course using Zoom. You do not even need a Zoom account. You will receive an emailed link to click to join the sessions.  You can use a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone. The bigger the screen, the easier it will be for you to see. Having a connection between your device and a large screen TV or monitor is ideal and highly recommended. It is very important that the Teacher Trainer will be able to see you onscreen from head to toe.

Meals are up to you.  It is recommended that you plan meals ahead and either have them prepared in advance or simple to put together quickly.  You will have the option of eating with a small group in a Zoom Breakout Room to get to know people better, just as you would sit and  eat with others in person.
