T’ai Chi Chih® Intensive with Teacher Trainer, Daniel Pienciak

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

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.

The heart of the Intensive will be refining & 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.

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

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

Limited to 18 participants, so reserve your space now!
