    The choices we make write a deep, invisible narrative into our body. Our posture is the result of this narrative on our patterns of thought and breath. Once established, changing these patterns is very difficult.

    This course begins your journey to a new understanding of mind and body. Intended results include a better understanding of the relations between power, posture, and stress reduction. Using directed breathing and standing meditation we reawaken specific deep connections in the body. These connections, over time, bring lasting change.

    This course is for anyone. Those who are unable to stand can train lying down.

    The breath is the smallest movement. Breathing is a rhythm and a skill. During trauma, your rhythm interrupted and changed. Reestablishing your healthy rhythm is critical for full recovery and provides opportunity for improvement. Central to maintaining health, good lymphatic circulation is dependent solely on movement. This course helps to establish a new view of the breath movement as a balancing lymphatic pump.

    Here it is, the TCB Form. Prerequisite: 100b - The Tai Chi Breath.

    This is 13 movement form is based on Yang and Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, with influences from Xingyi and Bagua. Emphasis is on health and recovery. Prerequisites: TCB-100c, TCB-101, TCB-102, TCB-103.

    The first step is clearly knowing how to focus effort on what matters to success and ignore what does not. This neuroscience-based meditation method will help you begin the process of getting to a new normal. 

    Persistent intentional effort is the only way to permanently alter posture and breathing. The Tai Chi Boost Mind-Body Inventory provides a method to develop a personalized step by step path to a new normal. In this course, students learn how to identify and safely direct their own recovery.

    Getting to a new normal requires hard physical work and mental strength. Willpower alone is not enough, you need a detailed plan to direct your willpower to accomplish specific attainable goals.

    This Certification ensures safe solo practice of the TCB Form and introduces our intellectual framework. Student shows understanding of neuroanatomy basics and their application to mind-body integration. Detailed video analysis required.

    This course provides a foundation for all TCB-ARCS Certifications. Neuroscience based training tools designed for health professionals to better engage clients in their own recovery. A certified Tai Chi Boost professional facilitates more conscious movement to develop a deliberately heathy lifestyle.
