WORKING FROM HOME
Today, more and more of us experience the challenges of having to work from home or under stress in an office where our work seems to never end - it reaches out into the rest of our lives and we don't seem to be able to turn it off. Tai Chi offers us a solution, 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.

30 DAY COURSES FOR BEGINNERS
This is one of a series of 30 days courses on Beginners Tai Chi. There is also the 30 Day Tai Chi Form Course and the 30 day Energy and Breathing Course.
Each course offers 30 modules (1 a day - but can be worked through as quickly or as slowly as you wish). You choose to download the session to your device or stream it.
What this Course Teaches
To regain a healthy balance we are going to implement some simple changes in 4 distinct sections.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
