T'ai Chi isn't just benefitial to everyone, it's fun! And with Bill Douglas, it's easy for anyone. Just do it! Buy this DVD! It's an invaluable gift to yourself.
(Note for people with back problems: If you have an injury you'll probably have to start out doing modified versions of some of the warm-ups and movements, and skip others entirely. When I first started doing my "hip rotation" warm ups any onlookers would have sworn I wasn't moving at all. As Bill says "Always listen to your body. Just do what feels good to ya." )
His explanations and great camera coverage makes learning the positions and moves easy!
*two thumbs up*
Although the instructor's book -- the Complete Idiot's Guide to Tai Chi and Qi Gong -- is not a necessity, it is a very good read and the diagram section that corresponds to the long form taught on the DVD is extremely helpful.
Last thing: I dropped the author a note to ask a question -- and he actually responded! Made a good experience even more enjoyable.
If you do decide to go this route -- be patient with yourself and enjoy the journey. My "playing" time for tai chi has become a lovely sanctuary and a place to learn more about myself through movement. One move at a time.
