"I am ... tapping into the energy within myself, the chi. When my mind is clear and my spirit is calm, I can use this energy to create more." - David-Dorian Ross, World T'ai Chi Medalist, Master Instruct

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 GREAT workout! So, I used to do Tae Kwon Do in my younger days but, I am long since unable to continue that. I decided to try Tai Chi. I was lucky enough to find this video. Since it is broken into three segments, I made myself take it slowly. I did the first section for a wekk, the first two the next week, all three the week after. by the time I was done, I was doing 45 minutes a day. A GREAT workout! Now, I work through the form twice per day, slowing it down so that it takes 10 minutes for each repitition for a 20 minute total workout. the results are FANTASTIC! I have never een in better shape and it SHOWS! I feel great and, for the first time, I have discernable abs! FANTASTIC! And you don't have to beat yourself to death to do it! Give it a try. you won't be sorry if you stick to it! October 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Next Logical Step After using the Tai Chi for beginners video, I found this video to be the perfect progression of Tai Chi training. There is something about Mr. Ross's training method that is easy to follow. relaxing and rejuvenating. I highly recommend this video for those looking to expand their practice. I found the session challanging yet very do-able. October 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by T-ai Chi Daily Practice DVD This is a good work out for people with physical disabilities. I had 3 lower back surgeries and have screws placed in my lower back at 3 levels. I haven't attempted exercise in years. These moves are gentle, not jarring and you're not asked to go further than your own comfort level. Putting the moves together is a challenge but once you feel the "flow" it's wonderful. December 21, 2009

I am an older woman, a diabetic and also have osteoarthritis. I find balancing barefooted nearly impossible. What kind of shoes are you wearing in your DVD and where may I purchase them?
Thank you for your response!

Answer: 
Tai chi is usually done with shoes on, a very flat bottomed smoothed sole like a tennis shoe, there are specific shoes made for tai chi.
I have always practiced and taught with either a tai chi shoe on or walking shoe like reebok/niki/new balance. I would ask the teacher if there is a specific reason why he/she is having you do it barefoot and then ask if you can wear a shoe.
