A Successful Tai Chi Teacher!

Are you a struggling Tai Chi teacher who sees your classes shrink from week to week?

Are you an experienced Tai Chi teacher who is looking for a fresh way to interact with your students??

Would you like to get answers now from a world authority on teaching Tai Chi?

In "How to be a Successful Tai Chi Teacher", the inspiring guide for Tai Chi and Qigong professionals, Bill Douglas shares his secrets to building a prosperous and rewarding Tai Chi and Qigong teaching practice.

Bill Douglas is the 2009 Internal Arts Hall of Fame Inductee (American Association of Internal Arts); and was recipient of the 2007 Extraordinary Service in the Field of Qigong Award (National Qigong Association). Bill is also the founder of World T'ai Chi & Qigong Day, which celebrated its 10th anniversary on April 26, 2008. Bill has been commissioned to teach Tai Chi & Qigong for many of the world's largest corporations, and in 2009 to present for the US Department of Health & Human Service's National Institutes of Health in Washington, D.C.

Bill says that his book will give you...
    "an insight into ways to take what you are already teaching to the next level, by making your T'ai Chi and Qigong more pleasurable ... tangible ... meaningful ... expansive ... and fun for your students -- no matter what style you are teaching."

And Bill Douglas now makes "How to be a Successful Tai Chi Teacher" available to you, exclusively as a downloadable e-book via NAMASTA University. The feedback has been stellar, see for example this one from Australia:
      "Your e-book on "How to be a Successful Tai Chi Teacher" has been the main reason for my success.

      I am looking forward to the next few months where I will be expanding more into the community and offering Tai Chi, Qigong and Yi Quan to more and more people.

      Your words echo so true when you talk about being authentic and to enjoy your teaching. Thanks once again!

      -- James Lincoln, Hobart, Australia, Dragon River Tai Chi
