I did the PM workout first one evening and felt immediately relaxed, centered, and grounded. It is very easy to follow. The viewer can simply 'mirror' the forms, i.e., Cole faces the camera and the viewer moves as though Cole were a mirror image. I tried other videos and DVDs in the past where the instructor would turn all different ways and it was impossible to follow for me. Not here. Very good for a beginner like me. LOVED the PM workout. I was instantly relaxed and that day's stress felt lifted away. Very enjoyable. Anyone who can stand for 30 minutes at a stretch can do this.

I purchased this video for several reasons -- I've read great things about Tai Chi and its health benefits; I was fascinated to watch individuals in China performing it in the mornings and evenings; I suffer from a lot of anxiety and was looking for a way to help relax. I purchased this particular video because it got better reviews than the others.

The video is very easy to follow and understand. I watched the slower walkthrough of the PM segment once and then am able to easily follow along with the full beach routine without any problems. The music is soothing as are the settings.

Cole, the narrator and person featured in the video, throws in some basic explanations about some of the forms -- what they are for and what the theory is behind them. You won't become a Tai Chi master watching this video -- this barely even scratches the surface. However, it is very relaxing and goes through several 10 - 15 minute segments that can be beneficial when used on a regular basis. If you are interested in delving deeply into Tai Chi with a strong foundation of the history and moves, you'll need something beyond this video. So if you are looking for the relaxation, stretching, and health benefits that you can gain from Tai Chi, this video delivers.

Really like this video. Both work-outs are "total body" & can be done separately, or back-to-back. Each one is roughly 25-30 minutes long. The movements are well explained & easy to follow. There's no impact or straining involved, but you feel surprisingly "worked-out" afterwards. What I like best is that my numerous aches & pains magically disappear after this work-out. It does a great job of loosening up my sore back/neck & stiff joints.

I am a total beginner to tai chi. I had tried a few tapes years ago and couldn't make heads or tails of them. I thought I was just too uncoordinated. I decided, though, to give this DVD a try based on favorable reviews.
Finally! Scott Cole is the total package. He is very easy on the eyes (for us women), has a soft, pleasant voice, a very appealing manner and, best of all, he has created an easy to follow and enjoyable workout for me. I have only done the PM Workout so far as relaxing is my main goal. He starts going very slowly through all the moves and explains them thoroughly. I don't pay attention to right or left, I just watch him and mirror him and I was not confused. Once he gets you familiar with the workout, he puts it all together in a beautiful beach setting, flowing through all the moves with narration and then repeating the moves for a second time with just music. A lot of moves emphasized getting joints looser and there were balancing moves - I was shaky on these but this practice should improve my balance and that is one of the purposes of tai chi. Also, I could feel afterward that my leg muscles had been working. I think everyone could do the PM Workout and Scott says at times to not judge yourself if you can't do everything precisely.
I previewed the AM Workout and the music and moves are faster and more energetic but either workout can be done at any time of day. I look forward to giving that one a try but, even if I only use the PM Workout, it is well worth the money for me.

I'll admit upfront that I don't know much about Tai Chi, so I can't say whether Scott Cole teaches "authentic" Tai Chi in this video. But I can say, I really like it.

I haven't done the AM workout very much. I prefer a more vigorous workout early in the morning, which this Tai Chi video is not, so I've only done it a couple times on weekends when I can get to the Y later in the morning for a "real" workout. Because I've only done it a few times, I haven't got all the movements yet and I can't do the entire flow sequence without instructions.

But I absolutely LOVE the PM workout. I do it almost every night before I go to bed to relax after a day of work and kids. It leaves me feeling so peaceful and relaxed that I can go right to bed and fall deeply asleep - something that hasn't been easy for me lately.

In each segment, Scott starts with a verbal introduction to Tai Chi (which I now forward through), and then talks you through each move individually while demonstrating and giving you plenty of time to practice. His explanations and demonstrations make it very easy to follow along. Then he does the entire flow sequence giving just the name and perhaps a brief explanation of each movement, and finally he does the entire flow sequence without any words. The explanation portion of each segment is filmed in a studio, while the two flow portions of each segment are filmed on a beach. In the studio, the camera angles are very good for following along in mirror pose. Once on the beach, however, Scott is filmed from a variety of angles, so if you haven't mastered the sequence from the explanation portion, you might have difficulty following along.

I find Scott Cole to be a great instructor. He's very encouraging and non-judgmental.
