Calling all TCC Teachers: 2014 Media Opportunities

Offering T’ai Chi Chih classes is a gift to our communities. This year, why not offer that gift even more widely by letting even more people know about your classes? Below is a list of media coverage TCC teachers received in 2013 and 2012. To see 2011 and earlier, visit the TCC website. It’s an extraordinary list – more than 30 articles in the past few years alone.

The Vital Force created a media kit a few years ago, available free on the website, to assist teachers in contacting local reporters, telling them about TCC, and seeing if you can join the large number of TCC teachers nationwide who’ve won media recognition. Interested teachers can also call your friends – and even strangers! – among the TCC teachers listed here who’ve already worked with the media.

TCC has changed our lives. It shouldn’t be a well-kept secret. Let’s spread the Chi.
