How you can implement Balance Minder learnings in your offerings

Illustrated Children’s Book

Exploring the calming effects of good posture and breathing techniques. This illustrated children’s book “Time Out Tai Chi – Welcoming Jing” sees us following along with Jing the Panda as he makes new friends using Tai Chi.

Connecting her love of writing and Tai Chi, author Leanne Simpson asks the readers to share in the moment as each fundamental Tai Chi form is developed.

Posture of Infinity and Posture of Open & Close and the Tai Chi salute are broken down to engage children and adults in the idea of movement and activity as a way for making friends. 

Jing translated means serenity. Welcoming a little serenity into our lives has far-reaching health and wellness benefits.
