Movie Reviews

"A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step"
Robin Lawrentz | Omaha, NE, USA | 01/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tai Chi for Beginners is an excellent program. Dr. Paul Lam teaches an innovative Step 1-2-3 method to make learning easy and enjoyable. I was able to learn the six beginner forms in one week. Tai Chi is not strenuous, but greatly assists the student to relax and release stress. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who wishes to improve their health without destroying their joints. Dr. Lam's students in this DVD are all in their "Silver Years." However, this training would be enjoyed by all ages. The back ground music adds to the peace and calming effect of the exercise."
Good start for Tai Chi

"In reading some of the reviews, I can't help but think some are missing the point. While I am only in my early 30s, the silver-hairs did not distract me from learning Tai Chi from this DVD. While some of them don't move as smoothly as some can, Dr Lam does move quite well and provides an excellent example of the proper form. As for the dialogue, after you listen to it a few times, you should be able to do the moves at your own pace and if you get ahead of the DVD, simply stand and meditate and wait for it to catch up. I use the remote on my DVD player to rewind and fast forward so I can do things at my own pace. If you are starting Tai Chi, this DVD should work for you. If you are more experienced, then this may bore you quickly. All I know is that I have slept better in the last week than I ever have (I do Tai Chi at night, right before bed). I now awaken fully refreshed before the alarm goes off!"
Not all exercisers are 25

"I bought this for my mum (aged 66) who has had a knee replacement and also has a bad back and other health issues. She loves it, has even booked to join a pensioners (we call Seniors pensioners in England) class as this gave her confidence to do so, and her flexibility is improving. I don't know about you, but I HATE it when exercise DVDs only show really, really young things (I'm 38) - which I am sure is fine if you are really young. Good quality products like this have a place; the instructor really knows his stuff; the class with him did not intimidate my mum. I say, you go Seniors! Good for you, this is a great DVD and don't listen to people who are churlish simply because they bought something that was not wrong, but wrong for them."
Over and Over

"I have had T'ai Chi for Beginners for about a week. Yes, it is repetitious. And, I am playing it over an over again. I am working on my coordination to go with the movements and still I am not completely satisfied with my performance. There is diaglog but it has only reinforced my trying to learn. The demonstrations are detailed - the reason for the dialog. Repetitions allow practice along with the DVD. The angles and repetitions help to study the movements. As I feel satisfied with my movements I learn another. I look forward to doing the T'ai Chi exercises and am enjoying learning the position. All and all it is very enjoyable and I am looking forward to gaining the confidence to move on into the 24 Forms. I am a senior citizen but I feel mastering the coordination necessary would be good and challanging for any age."
