Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful DVD! This has been wonderful for me. I struggle to quiet my mind with regular meditation, but this "moving meditation" has been perfect. As I focus on coordinating the movements and breathing, I am totally in the moment. Twenty minutes seem to pass by in just one! As I practice regularly, I am watching my health issues fade away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for! Fitness & meditation, excellent teacher, must buy! December 20, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm actually doing the exercises I borrowed the DVD from a friend and although it sat for a while.... when I did start going through the items this one was one that I continued to use. I found it hard to give back to the owner and so I purchased one for myself. Thank you February 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent practice I am healthy and physically fit but I wanted something more spiritual and deliberate since I am 60 and want to do more for keeping my joints working well and improve my balance. I already do some yoga along with zumba, walking, biking, and weight training but I wanted something more flowing and not as strenuous. This DVD is perfect for that. As soon as I learn the moves, I will be incorporating this exercise every morning before I have my coffee. The only thing I would have liked would have been written instructions or diagrams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Way for health Someone recommended this video. I had been extremely overweight. Using this video, I lost 3-5 lbs. a week. Feeling better each day, I found I began choosing to live a more balanced and healthy lifestyle. It is easy to do. I look forward to doing the workout everyday. I have recommended this to many people. August 24, 2010

Answer: 
This is a yes and no answer. One could start at the beginning and do them all. This lasts at least 45 min. What is recommended is that after you learn the moves that you start with a few that are best for opening and closing, then fill in with which ever ones that appeal to you for the length of time that you desire.

Answer: 
There are 2 DVDs. One shows the workout with great narrated instructions, and the other is a documentary. The instructional DVD is 70 minutes but that involves a lot of practicing so you understand the moves. I think that after you learn the moves, you can do qi gong in about 20 minutes. That's my goal. No book is included and that would help with quickly learning the moves.
