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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My husband and I enjoyed our first experience with Tai Chi by watching the CD. The teacher is very through with the movements. We plan to watch and learn Tai Chi frequently.

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.

I am getting older and can't do a lot of exercises because of health problems. Someone mentioned Tai Chi as a source of gentle exercising. I got the CD and actually practice every day. The moves are based on martial warfare but slowly done, act as a means of regaining both inner and outer balance. The first few times were a bit difficult because I'm not the most balanced person but once mastered, it's accomplished what aerobics couldn't do: It's helped me to become a little more stable (both physically and mentally).
