Comments from the Participants:
"It was truly a wonderful weekend on so many levels and such incredible learning.  
I totally agree with you about our wonderful two day much
knowledge and giving on Jesse's behalf...and the 13 Shi San Shi drill for me
was remarkable, (and hard)but agree my head too spinning --  I think when it
settles it will reveal deep insights into grateful to Jesse
and his "being" on this earth..we are all very blessed to know him....."  Barb P.
 "I am just writing to thank you for so generously sharing your time and knowledge with us in Great Barrington. It never ceases to amaze me that there is always so much to learn even in the most basic of movements.
 And every once in a while there is a small burst of knowledge ... When you were helping me with my Yang 108 and the kicks, I got a different insight into the balance - it is not only the positioning of the arms, that support the balance, but it is also the alignment of the shoulder to hip.  More basics!  :-)....." Margaret W.

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.
