She trained in China and was the first person to bring Tai Chi to the UK. Nicolette was Gerda’s last student before her death in 2006. In 1991, Gerda authored the book, “Looking for the Golden Needle”; which inspired the name of this website. In her book, she talks about the symbolism of Tai Chi and especially how it relates to our journey through life. Gerda also has a DVD, “Understanding Tai Chi Ch'uan”. With support from her family and access to her photographs and personal papers, Frank Woods wrote the biography of Gerda Geddes. The book was published in July 2008 and is called “Dancer in the Light”.
