For years we've been debating providing benefits for Tai chi Teachers such as third party verification of certification and liability insurance. Until recently we encouraged Tai Chi teachers to get insurance through the NQA/Namaste partnership. However, we recently discovered that the NQA will not certify Tai Chi teachers, only Qigong Health Practitioners and Instructors. As a result, we are looking into certifying Tai chi teachers ourselves. If you are interested in serving on the committee to make that happen, please contact CJ at

Affordable Insurance for Tai Chi Teachers

If you are interested in coming under our insurance policy, then you can apply to become a Professional Member of HPL Institute. You will be able to list your classes, workshops, and events in our database, and eventually (when they are finally ready) use our CIRWEP tools to promote your services. Cost is $295 a year (but you don't pay until you've been accepted). If you want to list your classes but don't need insurance, you can become a Practitioner Member instead ($180).


Fill out this form and return to us to apply.
