Chi Me instructor training - Level 2 accreditation

Welcome to Chi Me - the only instructor training course of its kind in the U.K.

Want to be a tai chi instructor? If the answer is yes but you don't have the time or money to invest in tai chi training you have come to the right place!

This uplifting programme provides the opportunity to learn a simplified version of tai chi, suitable for a wide range of clients. The LifeDock Chi Me instructor training course is a fully accredited Level 2 qualification providing the skills required to deliver simple and easy to follow tai chi influenced sessions in day centres, residential homes, supported housing, leisure centres and a wide range of community settings. Tai chi instructor training takes several years to complete and tai chi instructors are hard to come by! We wanted more people to be able to experience the wonderful benefits of tai chi, so we developed the Chi Me instructor course; specifically designed to be easy to learn for both the leader and the participants.

Chi Me is a series of simple movements, linked together to create a gentle, flowing and easy to follow tai chi style class. It is suitable for any age group but is ideal for older adults, mixed ability groups and people with a mental health diagnosis. It can also be adapted for seated participants and is a beneficial addition to existing falls prevention and pain management programmes.

Chi Me has a wonderful calming effect and creates a sense of mental and emotional wellbeing. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive response we have recieved, Chi Me has become one of our most sought after instructor training courses.
