5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant May 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very good DVD to learn Qi Gong. The teacher really knows how to make things clear in the instruction. Before buying this I did some research on him - his background is very impressive in martial arts and teaching.

On this video he teaches the 8 Pieces of Brocade, with variations that can be added when you start feeling stronger. You can work on an individual piece or work them all together if you like. There are also a few extra practices in addition to the 8 Pieces. I have been really enjoying it so far.

Some real nice options in case you need them, such as subtitles, and good information about each Piece and what it is designed for, plus some general information and practice things to keep in mind.

Overall, I am very pleased with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Master Chris Pei, for this great DVD! August 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I decided to give this DVD a try due to my longtime muskuloskeletal disorders, as well as my determination to stay away from the pharma industry and their drugs, which to me, have been useless if not dangerous. I have a history of lumbago, bursitis and neck problems. Several years ago, I had sciatica that lasted for almost 7 years. It was then that I knew without a doubt there was absolutely nothing conventional allopathic medicine (therapy and dangerous drugs included) could do for me. Though a series of sessions with a good chiropractor provided relief, it was thanks to meditation and mind control that I finally completely got over my sciatica. Now I have been sciatica free for 15 years, but I would often have neck and back pain problems due to bad posture or tension, and two or three years ago I also started having pain on my upper left arm. Depending how high and in which direction I raised my left arm, a sharp pain would remind me something was seriously wrong with it. My low back pain was also there. Whenever I had to stand in the kitchen for more than 20 minutes chopping veggies or preparing a meal, I had to take a rest and sit down for a while due to discomfort or pain on my lower back. Only a few months ago, I came on Amazon and saw this DVD and ordered it right away. I started by watching the tape very carefully two or three times, trying not to miss any detail in order to follow Master Chris Pei's instructions as faithfully as I could. The results are next to miraculous. I could feel energized right after my very first session. Five of six sessions later, I realized that my left arm was not aching any more. The next day, when I got on my Pilates machine to do some strength training, I realized I could raise my left arm as high as I wanted without any pain whatsoever. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars I Really Like This August 22, 2010
By Jack
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really like this and how it teaches Qi Gong. He presents the material in a way that I could follow and like the variations shown as you get comfortable. The bonus routines are also really good in helping me develop focus and some additional strength.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn QiGong July 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Qi (or Chi) Gong is a great way to exercise to control breathing and to relax and this video has helped me learn it to get those benefits with lessons that make it easy to understand.

I definately feel more relaxed and giving myself some time to do these exercises is now something I am getting into the habit of doing now for the last couple of months. I am also gaining some flexibility and strength. Hugging The Tree (one of the extra routines in addition to the 8 Pieces) has helped make my upper body stronger.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was a bit disappointed June 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
after having sampled and practiced several beginners qigong DVDs, this one resonate much less with me and felt less satisfying as a practice. I would have liked to see the entire sequence of moves as one continuous flow of practice at the end of the DVD, as an option.

I agree with another reviewer who mentioned that the 8 routines advertised on the cover is in fact the 8 Brocade, one set of practice, not 8 different sets. And sometimes the angle of the camera or the distance to the performer made parts of the posture/move unclear.

I do like the alternative modifications he offers for each move.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful January 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I took an introductory, 6 session Qi Gong class at the community park this summer and wanted to continue with it. The physical and mental balance it's brought me is amazing. With this DVD I've gained a better understanding of Qi Gong and I'm seeing even more benefits from it. Mr Pei teaches as a nice, relaxed pace. This program is subtitled and with a DVD, unlike in a group class, I can go back and work on a section if I feel I need to, and I can decide what I want to do on any day. If you're looking for a good beginner Qi Gong DVD, this is the one you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully filmed, serene, and easy to follow! July 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not being able to see any sort of preview and being unfamiliar with Qi Gong (but familiar with extremely poor quality instructional videos), I was hesitant at first to purchase this DVD- Don't Be!!! Chris Pei's serene nature gives meaning to the calm, strong beauty of Qi Gong.

The format is clear and simple. Each step is shown slowly and carefully. The pace is such that you can follow right along as he does each movement- no annoying rewinding or pausing is necessary to follow the movements. There is also no excess chatter to wait through before beginning an exercise - the history of Qi Gong is in a separate chapter that you can watch when you like. Chris Pei just explains each movement in very simple words and then shows when to exhale and inhale. Movements start out at a manageable level and progress in difficulty while still being very gentle and calming.

The video quality is excellent and is shot in a beautiful location by the side of a lake surrounded by trees. Audio is clear and the music (also very peaceful) does not overpower his voice.

I purchased this for a friend who severely injured her back. She is recovering, but is unable to do other forms of light exercise and her doctor suggested Tai Chi or Qi Gong. She is thrilled by it and finds it the perfect form of exercise being simple- and yet challenging in a way that evolves at her own pace as she heals and grows stronger. All in all, a perfectly beautiful Qi Gong video for beginners and regular practicers alike. I am happily impressed!
