Time Out Tai Chi – Welcoming Jing provides an opportunity to introduce Tai Chi to the household or classroom and is a wonderful way to start building the habits of good posture, relaxation and movement.   Studies have shown that Tai Chi is a healthy and safe exercise that everyone can get involved in. The word “jing” can be roughly translated to mean “serenity”. Welcoming Jing into your life is a positive experience for all.

The idea for the book, “Time Out Tai Chi – Welcoming Jing” came about when the author Leanne  started sharing Tai Chi with children by taking animal drawings and telling a story about them to help keep the youngsters engaged.  She collaborated with her daughter and Illustrator Bonnie to make this engaging book to help teachers and childcare workers share this wonderful introduction to Tai Chi.
