In this video, I do prefer the AM workout to the PM one, as the AM one is somewhat different from the More Energy video though both work great for a morning workout. However, I find the Deep Sleep one a lot better than the PM one in this video that is considerably more basic. Still, his method is just the best I've ever found.
What Lee Holden does is create something similar to Vinyassa Flow Yoga in Yoga, where each single chi gung exercise flows into the next in a sensible manner with the result being in an incredibly beneficial workout by the end that is much stronger in effect than the usual chi gung routines. In a way, it's like taking an extended normal chi gung routine like the 8 pieces of brocade or the Crane, and applying that kind of sequence to an entire routine but it's easy to do, not hard to follow. Unlike Vinyassa Flow Yoga, which I find is often taught in a rapid, jerky, fast way that doesn't provide the meditative calm features of yoga, Holden's Flow method of Chi Gung is smooth, flowing, gentle, fluid, calming, and by the end of the workout incredibly energizing or in the case of Deep Sleep or PM workout, feel ready to head for bed completely cleansed, stress free and physically relaxed and rejuvinated.
I have been really blown away at how great it feels at the end of his workouts. His routines, the exercises, the entire routine, the background music, and his teaching and production values all come together in an excellent way. The other 2 videos that I mentioned that I like better also have a better feel to them in the Lake Tahoe setting as opposed to the indoor setting in this one, a minor quibble.
I found his routines easy to learn and follow, without strain, and smooth. You know, some chi gung teachers are too angular in movement. Others are too slow or fast. Lee's style is just right and perfect, and clearly he's worked on how to do it so the student can benefit the most easily.
I just can't recommend his videos more. I have been doing chi gung for a good 17 years and Holden's are the best chi gung routines I've come across.
