Tai Chi Healthways Summer Camp Tuesday - Saturday, June 25-29, 2019 San Diego, USA

 2019 camp group web

Sorry for Dirk Swierczynski, Mubing Wang, and RC, are not in the group picture.
"The best way to describe the results of my time with you is what my wife said. About 2 weeks after I returned from San Diego I was doing tai chi and my wife said to me “Before I always admired that you did Tai Chi….now I am envious”.  Jesse, my Tai Chi didn’t double in tripled. I am serious. My understanding of the movements and ability to execute them is so dramatically improved, and they feel so good when I do thank you for that.  Originally I had planned to visit you only once due to distance and costs, but my wife was so impressed by my change she said I should go back" - Scott A.
"Master Jesse Tsao gave us his all for 5 days. Great to see friends from last year and meet new friends. Once again, great vibes this year. Lots of humor and levity, but everyone was focused and there to learn and improve... -- Laurent C.
"Our 2019 Tai Chi Healthways Summer Camp has come to an end. Thank you Grandmaster Jesse for sharing your vast knowledge of the different styles of tai chi, Qigong, and Neigong. I look forward to continuing my practice of Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi for Vitality as I can feel the benefit each time I go through the poses. The discussion of meridians, energy points, and the impacted organs can be quite complex but your presentation throughout the week helped increase my knowledge in this area. I was amazed that the Bodhi seed could not only be utilized on the energy points through self massage but also on pressure points during a specific self defense movement. I enjoyed the weapon aspect of this year’s summer camp. The week flew by not only due to the incredible amount of information you shared but because you are always able to present new material in a fun manner. These trainings are also a wonderful experience as I am able to see friends from past trainings as well as create new friendships.  --  Jana A.
"A true tribute and a perfect goodbye to an extraordinary workshop!! Thanks for your unbelievable energy and your unending love for teaching. This was a great group of students and masters who all borrowed your love and  chi and incorporated both internally. Your teaching lasts a lifetime, but I can’t wait to see you and learn from you soon! -- Michael R.
" I want to thank you for giving us all an amazing experience this year at camp. I know I've gained a deeper appreciation for the art of Qigong/ Taichi,,, your teaching skills and all your wisdom is what makes learning from you a magical experience.
Thank you for everything!!  -- Sandra R.

     "I would like to tell you how much I enjoy our trips together. They seem to be better each time we go. I appreciate your hard work and planning and your effort to please all. I have already used your wisdom about "our treasure" the energy we have in our older years. The classes truly listened and appreciated. 
I look forward to our next journey and until then" ---Gary F.
"We just wanted to thank you for an amazing tour of China, and your unending energy throughout the heat and bus’s rides of Bangkok, always there to teach and inspire us to keep focused on our practice of Tai Chi. I want to thank you for healing me and inspiring me to continue and ultimately totally dissipating me of exhaustion I was experiencing  before I started the tour. You are a true Master Jesse"--Michael R.

Marco Island, FL Tai Chi Healthways workshop Sat - Sun, Feb. 16-17, 2019

 Marco Island 2019

All about Tai Chi and Qigong:  We will cover the fundamental Qigong practice and Tai Chi inner energy cultivation, classic long forms Chen and Yang, as well as a short fan form.  From an ancient Chinese martial art, Tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that facilitates health improvement, disease prevention, healing assistance, and spiritual growth. It involves slow, circular movements, as well as mental concentration, breath control, deep relaxation, and meditation.  Tai chi uses slow, gentle, flowing movements to reduce the stress of today’s busy lifestyles and improve the body’s overall health. While other types of modern exercise might place an emphasis on pushing the body harder and faster, in Taichi the emphasis is on pushing slower and softer, making it ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels.  We will teach the classic tai chi routines in a Qigong's approach.  Make it more tasteful and enjoyable by any skill level participants.

Denver, CO - January 25-26, 2019 (Saturday and Sunday)


Tai Chi Ruler and Massage

This unique Tai Chi form uses an ancient tool called a Ruler which when used along with intention and breath cultivates and directs Qi throughout the body.  It is a great tool to eliminate worries and release ourselves from the past confusion.  This beginner-friendly form concludes with a step by step guide on how to use the Ruler to stimulate major acupressure points on the neck, back, shoulders, and scalp, making it a fun qigong session to share with a friend. This will be a great opportunity for tai chi or Qigong instructors to bring home new teaching to their community.

Partner Qigong

An innovative take on an ages-old practice. This Qigong set is designed to focus on subtle energies within oneself as well as those in your partner, whether that partner is a friend or nature. This pleasant form trains us to "tune in" to another in such a way as to foster compassion and "listening" skills. Partners help each other through sharing energy into tranquility and become one with the pulse of the Universe.  Additionally, studies show that when we embark on healthy hobbies with a friend, they're more enjoyable and we stick with them longer.

Sunday, Jan. 27: Semi-private training 3 hours:  Tai Chi Bang - Eight Immortal Flute, Push Hands, Tai Chi Cane,....

Saturday, October 20, 2018 Shi-ba-shi Tai Chi Fan 18 Form in Yang Style
 Significantly different from other fan forms, this is not a dancing-type stage show.  All moves are practical, useful techniques for self-healing and self-defense, based on traditional Yang Style Tai Chi for ease of learning and recall. Combined with the fan's openings and closings, one practices stress release and energy circulation.  It also emphasizes self-defense as each move has clear martial meaning.  The closed fan can be a baton to deflect, strike, stab, or bludgeon an opponent.  The open fan can be used to shield, distract, or even cut because traditionally, the ribs of the fan would have sharpened points.  Dr. Jesse Tsao created this routine based on his Ph.D. research on traditional Chinese exercise for disease prevention and well-being.

Jesse Tsao Tai Chi Healthways at Melbourne, Australia, October 13-15, 2018

Saturday - Monday, October 13-15, 2018
Dr. Jesse Tsao will share his knowlage on Tai chi philosophy and concepts, as well as teach the Tai Chi Double Baton/Bang in Tai Chi Form 24.
Tai Chi Double Bang in Form 24 is a practice based on the most popular Tai Chi routine, Form 24, with self-defense in mind.  Each posture is initiated with small circles from wrist rotation, driven by silk reeling energy flow.  It will help prevent heart disease, and lung problems because rotation stimulates 6 meridian channel origin energy points around the wrist.  It will also prevent carpal tunnel. This is also an effective tool to help Tai Chi beginners get rid of stiff arm problems.

Event List


Tai Chi Healthways Association has been developing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for group exercise leader/instructor and personal trainer through its national and worldwide workshop/seminar program, publication and research. Led by Master Jesse Tsao, Ph.D.,the CEUs created by Tai Chi Healthways are recognized by learners, group exercise instructors, and employers. A CEU is defined as ten contact hour of participation in a recognized continuing education program, with qualified instruction and sponsorship. CEU records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements mandated by certification bodies, professional societies, or governmental licensing boards. The records also provide employers with information on training pertinent to particular occupations. Not all CEUs are created equal. The term CEU is in the public domain. Any organization may award a traditional CEU without requiring accreditation. That’s why it is important to look for Tai Chi Healthways CEUs so that an individual can assure employers, credentialing associations, licensing bodies and others that he has completed a quality program.
*Additional document fee for the CEU certificate is $20.
