Tai Chi for Children is an interactive workshop where you will learn to apply the principles of Tai Chi for therapeutic benefit in children.
Tai Chi is the fastest growing form of exercise in the Western world, and is considered “moving meditation”. Recent studies have shown the benefits of mindfulness and meditation in children for improved learning and life performance.
This workshop teaches Tai Chi principles and the benefits of Tai Chi as an evidence based therapeutic intervention. Emphasis is placed on making Tai Chi accessible to the younger population through use of play and mental imagery.
Participants will learn to use Tai Chi as a therapeutic modality for addressing sensory processing, motor planning, focus and attention, strength and balance. They will also learn how to modify Tai Chi forms for the intended population and setting for best therapeutic benefit.
You won't be bored at this workshop! You'll be too busy moving and doing. All movement activities are slow, safe and suitable for individuals of all abilities.

- Apply the principles of Tai Chi practice for various pediatric settings
- Understand and execute simple Tai Chi form for therapeutic use and application
- Apply Tai Chi principles to address sensory modulation and attention deficits
- Use mental imagery and play as strategies to implement Tai Chi principles for therapeutic benefit
- Modify Tai Chi for various levels and abilities of children on caseloads
