Chi Me

Want to be a Tai Chi Instructor?

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 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 and adults with disabilities and people with a mental health condition. It can also be adapted for seated participants and is a beneficial addition to existing falls prevention and pain management programmes.

Chi Me embraces the tai chi principles of good posture, strength, balance and slow controlled movement. It has a wonderful calming effect and creates of 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.
