Thank you so much for attending the Cultural Care Au Pair T’ai Chi workshop. I hope that you enjoyed your time learning a little bit about T’ai Chi.

I have set this page up so that you can find information and resources relating to the T’ai Chi workshop. I will continue to add to this over the next couple weeks as I find more resources or create new videos. Feel free to browse through the links below and around the website as a whole. And please feel free to email or call me with any questions that I might be able to answer for you.

Qigong – Zhan Zhuang and Eight Layered Brocade: A list of the movmements in the “Eight Layered Brocade” (also known as “The Eight Fine Exercises” or “Eight Pieces of Brocade”) set of qigong exercises. This sheet also includes a list of postures for Zhan Zhuang (or standing qigong) which we did not do at the workshop.

Although we only did four of each of the exercises, traditionally each exercise is done eight times.
