Tai Chi for managing stress & building good health

There are a lot of courses out there teaching you how to cope with stress, ill-health or tension at home or in the workplace, but few with the history and depth of approach that Tai Chi provides, for this ancient practice not only can tell you what to do, but more importantly, it can show you how to do it.


Today, more and more of us experience the negative aspects of a work life from home or in an office where our work seems to never end - it reaches out into our travel, social and even leisure time. Tai Chi has an answer to this, for it is full of simple and easy exercises that can be incorporated into our daily activities, so when we have a stressful day or a particularly challenging event occurs, we are ready and poised to deal with it.

What this Course Teaches

Simple steps, easy to learn and easy to apply

To regain a healthy balance we are going to implement some simple changes in 4 distinct sections. 

Section 1.

You will learn the importance of posture. Working up the body, from the feet to the head, introducing exercises for each part that will help build awareness of tension and develop good alignment skills.

Posture work from feet to head

Section 2

In this session you will learn a new approach to focus and concentration, looking at the imagination, eye exercises, peripheral vision and finally learning a moving mediation.

Relaxation, eye strain and peripheral vison

Section 3

Next you will learn about work space, breathing, diet and food for all these have a direct impact on your energy levels and ability to stay relaxed and focused.

Diet, energy and work space

Section 4

Then we will move onto the ideas of slowing down and building balance - two notions with accompanying exercises that are essential to developing a good set of tools that will resist the negative impact of stress in your life.

Learning the benefits of Slowing down

Finally, throughout this course, you will learn a series of simple and easy Tai Chi postures, so that by the end, you will have a beautiful and harmonious mini-sequence to practice each day - to fend off stress before it even gets close.

Why Learn with Me?

All the exercises and approaches in this course have been selected from the years of training I have given hundreds of students who have come in search of help - for guidance and advice - on the best methods for resisting mounting pressures at work or at home. I can't give you a less stressful job, a better form of representative democracy or an immediate end to climate change, but I can give you the tools to turn that stress into something useful and in turn, make you a calmer, more relaxed and more balanced person.

A final Bonus Bean Curd Book

All the exercises and approaches you will find in this course come from a book I wrote some years back called The Manual of Bean Curd Boxing: Tai Chi and the Noble Art of Leaving Things Alone. Many readers over the years asked if I could show them concrete examples of how to incorporate the principles and techniques from this book into their lives. For that reason I put together this short course. So, as a bonus, you will find at the very end of the course a copy of the book. I hope you enjoy them.
