Invigorating and energizing meditative excercise.
N. Flattes | Boston,MA | 03/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD instruction on Chi Kung standing meditations is excellent. It is a high quality presentation that is expertly done. The demonstration and instruction are easy to see and understand. It is a more demanding workout than it may appear at first glance, but it is well worth it. I highly recommended this DVD to anyone looking for a set Chi Kung excecises that are demanding without being strenuous. It is clear and easy to understand set of meditations that is well worth the price. It is also a good introduction to Chi Kung excercises.

However, this is not a dynamic workout, and the movements are slow and tranquil. The background music is also a soft easy going set of new age tunes, and this is not an excercise set for someone looking for a fast and high paced workout.

It is a calming and relaxing series of excercises that is soothing and meditative. It is also a fun set of excercises that are invigorating and relaxing wihout being too demanding and strenuous."
Easy-to-follow and effective

"I have found these Chi Kung exercises easy-to-follow and very effective at increasing an awareness of chi and its flow. Terry's explanations and demonstrations are very clear, and he takes the instruction at a nice, leisurely pace. The production of the DVD is excellent, also.
Chi Kung is much easier to learn from a video, than Tai Chi, and produces benefits quickly.
The only addition to Terry's instruction that I would like to have seen is something about the more "esoteric" elements of the movements. For example, when your hands pass near certain areas of the body, you are bringing fresh chi into those areas, in effect recharging them with energy, or redistributing energy. However, this is something you can intuit when you become adept at the movements.
To help with learning the relationship between chi kung movements and this "recharging" with chi, I would recommend Wen-Mei Yu's book on chi kung. Studying this book will give you a good "feel" for how movements recharge the body with chi.
All in all, Terry's are the best chi kung video/DVDs I have seen."
Highly Recommended

"These videos are the product of up to a decade and a half of refinement and are still the best on the subject. I have been practicing chi kung using Terence Dunn's flying phoenix system since 1994. At that time they were on VHS and difficult to navigate. He has now delivered them on DVD. The benefits are palpable and powerful from the first day of practice. To obtain maximum benefits, one has to be conscious, consistent and conscientious.

It is a science, because the results are reproducible. You will have results if you practice. You do not have to believe anything. Just follow the instructions. About the reviewer who wants more active movements, I urge him to be patient. Master this first basic series. It is the foundation for the other videos. The piece de resistance is the 20 minute long form meditation, which is quite complex in its movements and very powerful in its effects. I expect Mr Dunn is rendering that into DVD about now.

This series is probably all the chi kung that the majority of people would need."

"very well presented and easy to follow i started practicing tai chi using his dvd for the yang long form and liked it so much i decided to try the chi kung. i workout regularly with tae-bo and low/high impact aroebics and found the tai chi and chi kung a perfect compliment. the music and the way he instructs are calming and informative enough to give you background to appreciate what your doing."
