Rated 5 out of 5 by Wise Buy This was my first experience seeing and doing QiGong. It is very easy to follow. The instructors explain how to do it and why. I start my day with it to begin my focus in the right place and feel a bit energized. Because my day is so busy, I forget to take time to breathe. The hand movements that I have learned in the cd are, at times, repeated in my work day and it snaps me back to a focus and breath. Originally, I did this in the evening and realized that I felt so good, I had a hard time getting to sleep. The documentary cd is invaluable. Great information on this practice. I just purchased two for gifts. November 30, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Hard to believe that simple movements could have such amazing & beneficial effects. I would recommend it to anyone as it can scale to each person's ability. Great DVD! October 27, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent dvd - heal yourself!!! I love this DVD. I'm a healer/bodyworker, and am always looking for ways for my clients to empower themselves and move beyond what our sessions facilitate. Qigong is remarkable work - in all its various forms. In particular I loved the way this DVD offers so much information (and the breath is actually clearly explained), and I love that this style of Qigong is easy enough that even my most physically challenged clients can do most of the work and begin to cultivate their own ability to heal self. I'm buying copies for all my clients as gifts...and the half dozen people with whom I've done this DVD LOVE it! Additionally, I've realized that this is the work I need to do to keep my body healthy and my well as a healer full - which has been a wonderful and profound awakening. September 30, 2009
Rated 3 out of 5 by mixed feelings Parts of this dvd are really well done, with clear instruction and video following, while others move too quickly, don't explain where to breathe with movement, and the verbal instruction is not followed by the cameras lens. Hand movements can be important during certain series of movements, and the camera zooms in to the chest or face, missing hands completely. I found that frustrating. Thankfully, I rented the dvd before committing to the purchase - will I buy it? no. September 25, 2009
