Editorial Reviews

Beginning Tai Chi with Arthur Rosenfeld, includes one-hour instructional session with the 30 year martial artist and philosopher who teaches the ancient art Tai Chi. The Chinese believe that one’s health and vitality is directly influenced by the flow of one’s internal energy. This flow of energy can be easily enhanced by combining smooth and circular body movements with mental relaxation and focus. Master Rosenfeld reveals the graceful movements and stances of tai chi in a series of simple exercises that focus the mind, develop proper body alignment, and improve overall strength, balance, and flexibility. This DVD is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of the practice. The program includes: the traditional warm up, the gentle stretch, arm movements, leg movements, a tai chi sequence and more. Rosenfeld will demonstrate that Tai Chi movements are easy and will enable your mind and body to relax so that you can feel and enjoy the power of this exercise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Balancing and relaxing April 16, 2011

This CD is a very complete but easy to follow version of Tai Chi. The visuals are great. The first time using it I found it was energizing and also relaxing after a few minutes of use. Amazing how one can forget to relax.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to follow September 7, 2012
By krysha

I love Tai Chi. I took a course that was offered at work and the woman who ran it was great. I found this DVD easy to follow. The instructor explains each move and why you are doing it. He repeats the moves after adding another move. I love the program. Has done wonders to my back and joints. The slow movements are graceful, almost like ballet in some areas. You don't feel stresssed out after these exercises. I would recommend the video to everyone. I stop the DVD when I feel I need to and don't feel like I did too much and amy achy. Feels great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tai Chi for a Beginner May 10, 2012

I'd seen the author on PBS and liked the "take-it-from-the-beginning process. I've been watching the video regularly and hope to move onto a more advanced level before long.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners September 20, 2012

This is very good for beginners. I had stiffness in my shoulder and after doing it a few times, it worked out the stiffness. The instructor doesn't go so fast you have to go over it again and again just to get it. I would recommend this dvd to older folks to keep flexible.

This is only warm up for the Tai Chi and it should be said in the title. It was only endeless explanation about the postures and warm up exercises.

2.0 out of 5 stars Truly a beginning February 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
As is noted in several reviews, this is a beginning. It is devoted to basic principles and 'relaxation'. It is not instruction in a sequence. Buyer beware.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beginning: Tai Chi
It seemed dated, Tai Chi is Tai Chi I suppose. I think there is probably better DVD's out there, I will keep looking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much talk and not enough teaching
Too much time was spent talking about the warm-up, stretch, and arm movements. He could have moved through that much quicker so more time is spent teaching the Tai Chi Sequence. Read more

The dvd came very timely, however it was not as easy as I though it would be. I think the dvd familiarized me with the concepts however I think it works better in a group setting. Read more

At 54, I found this DVD to be a great addition to biking and archery because it keeps my joints flexible and muscles supple. Plus, it has really helped my balance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like it.
I didn't like this CD at all. It moved too slowly and only showed
very basic positions for the very very very beginner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay
It's okay, it must be an intro cd because the whole cd is shown on the cover. It only gives a few different moves. A little dissappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice instruction
Beginner at tai chi. Wanted to try it and also use it as a way to begin activity again after several months of inactivity. The instruction is clear. Love the warm up. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars VERY slow. Most excercises done in a chair!
Way too slow for the active seniors in my bldg! Instruction given at a snails pace! Even if all you do is walk - this DVD is too slow for you.
