One of the things I enjoy about teaching Tai Chi private lessons is the opportunity to create a specific program for a client.
There’s no point in running a standard Tai Chi lesson for a private client; they can get that at any Tai Chi class which is much cheaper than the professional fee I charge.
The first thing I do when talking to a prospective client is to find out why they are interested in private lessons. Usually the answer is for a specific health issue they are dealing with.
If I agree to take on a client I then design a program that includes Tai Chi basic skills and specific skills that is suitable for their needs. This requires a lot of thought as each client is different.
I also empahsise before the first lesson that what I offer is not a ‘miracle cure’ but something that may help improve their health. It’s what I call a common sense approach which is sometimes not all that common these days.
Oh, if they do want a ‘quick cure’ then I suggest they try the ‘magic secret formula’ of PPP.
And what is PPP?
Practice, Practice, Practice.
