The Tan Academy of Balance would love YOUR input for our next
BSA cohort offerings!

The current academic calendar is set to offer Cohort 5 in early 2025…However:

We are considering hosting a LIVE, IN-PERSON Balance System Acupuncture Foundations course (Level 1+2) at the end of 2023 or beginning of 2024.

If this offering is a-go, this means that BSA Cohort 5 would be offered beginning
September 2024

We want to hear from you! Let us know if you would be interested in:

  1. a) A live, in-person BSA Foundations course?
  2. b) To join Cohort 5 in 2024, instead of 2025?
