There was no way that I could possibly do any exercise program and I was afraid that I would make a fool of myself by taking any classes. Tai Chi is so beautiful that I wanted to learn but realized that I would have to improve my muscle tone, balance and stamina first. This program has (I believe) given me the possibility for a longer life than I would have had if I continued as before.
This is for people like me who want to get started. After just a few weeks I am much stronger, more graceful and much more secure in my balance. It's convenient. because there are two parts each 15 minutes long. You can do one part then later the other part if you want by just using the menu. I will be getting a more advanced (more actual) Tai Chi video soon.
This video is not going to teach you how to do Tai Chi as practiced but it will definitely put you in the mood to learn more.
The studio is a house and seems sort of odd to film in.
Scott has a nice voice and one can tell he has been instructing along time.
He is easy to watch and the moves are all gentle and performed well.
He gives little to no instruction on how to do actually do the moves. That is actually fine with me as I am a practioner but others might be lost.
His pal, Claire is very fluid and clearly limber.
I imagine everyone is supposed to watch her and learn as Scott goes into his lovely talk about Tai Chi and the name of the movement which is pleasant enough.
But, it is really necessary to "check in" with Claire every 5 minutes?
He says her name constantly and keeps asking her how she is doing.
WHY? Is she going to fall down or something?
Clearly, Claire is fine and as she is on the DVD we assume she will make it all the way through.
Pros: Nice music and easy to watch. Good for folks who need gentle moves and may not be able to do yoga. Worth the watch for these folks.
Cons: little to no actual instruction, way too much Claire checking . We could have used less Clairing and more verbal instruction.
Not bad at all for seniors and beginners but seems really not useful for anyone wanting something deep and informative.
Sold mine back
I was very impressed with this video. The exercises were not too difficult and were very slow and gentle. After the workout I felt very refreshed and energized. The length of the workout is the perfect amount of time, just taking a little over 30 minutes to complete.
My mother also enjoys this video and uses it at least twice a week. However, for someone that has not tried this type of exercise, she would recommend that you split the video into two 15 min workouts until you get use to it. Even though the moves are not that difficult she certainly felt the results the following day.
