You may have personal goals you wish to achieve; you may already be more or less skilled in Tai Chi; you may want to combine your Tai Chi training with another activity, such as learning Chinese at one of the local language schools. We will be happy to accommodate you, and to organise a course that fits your own schedule and requirements, whilst helping you achieve your own personal targets and goals for what you wish to try and achieve.

Instructors Program

The skills of passing on knowledge

To obtain an instructor level, you need to train at least 6 months full time in our school. Please, be aware that the fact that you train 6 months or more, doesn’t necessary make you an instructor. You need to train hard, understand the movements as well as the principles and philosophy of tai chi. 6 months equals 480 hours of training. We strongly advice you to practice the movements you learned by yourself as well. It doesn’t take long to learn the movements, but it takes a long time to integrate them and adjust your breathing and internal energy.
