jill-freeman-2Jill Freeman (Kerikeri)

$200 Full Member tuition scholarship to attend Dr Lam’s Tai Chi for Rehabilitation Instructor Training Workshop

“A HUGE THANK YOU 
I would like to thank everyone involved in TCHC NZ Inc for the financial support given to my registration for the TCR workshop.

At the end of the workshop, an evaluation form was handed out, one question being “Why did you attend this course?” I answered honestly, “To update my TCA certificate”.

I had watched the TCR DVD a few times a couple of years ago and wasn’t convinced that it offered anything new.  How wrong I was!  It is an inspired programme full of subtleties.  If you see it in a training programme in the future, I recommend registration highly – and applying to TCHC NZ Inc for a student grant!

Happy teaching to all of you,
Jill Freeman”

A few words from the Pam Burns Scholarship Awardee

I want to thank everyone for the lovely workshop weekend in Taupo, the Workshop was great I learnt so much, the food was tasty and plentiful and Maureen and I were so cosy in our little cabin.
 
I came away so excited about Tai Chi For Rehabilitation and  have already introduced it into my classes.
 
All going well I hope to put my Pam Burn Scholarship towards the Sydney Workshop in January 2017.

Kind regards
Margaret Hardgrave
