Tai Chi and Qigong Books, Videos, Toys, and Music

Frequently my students ask me what books and videos I have found to be most useful in my study and practice. Here is a list of resources I have found helpful. Please note that everyone responds to different styles of writing and content delivery. The following are resources that I personally have resonated with.

I also receive questions about the music I play during classes. Below are some of the selections I play.
