Seijaku, CO Teachers Small Group Practice, and Private Classes:
Want to go deeper or considering becoming a teacher? Private T’ai Chi Chih, Seijaku (advanced T’ai Chi Chih) and candidate mentoring sessions to prepare for teacher accreditation are available by request. Lisa also specializes in individual T’ai Chi Chih student and candidate coaching over zoom. Many teachers have found that they make great personal discoveries during the process of accreditation. She has helped several candidates become teachers and recently audited an accreditation and has a good feel for how to get the most out of the process. After helping candidates solidify their felt understanding of the principles and subtleties of the movements, focus shifts to deepening into and feeling the energy of the practice so that T’ai Chi Chih can become the teacher.
Most of my zoom sessions that are not listed on the church website are held in my personal room
