Reviews

Qi Gong expert Matthew Cohen guides viewers through two 40-minute exercise programs that utilise the therapeutic benefits of this ancient practice. The fire programme heats and strengthens the body, activates and expands the senses, relieves depression, stimulates the immune system and detoxifies the body. The water programme cools the body and calms the nervous system, develops grace and greater range of motion, promotes deep relaxation and releases tension, stress, anxiety and fear.

Matthew Cohen is an inspiration to me. He demonstrates how graceful and powerful Qi gong practice is in the way he moves. It is easy to see how present he is. He also has a shadow assistant (Juju) who does the workout with him, so there is an opportunity to watch two people who are perfectly synchronised in the workout. As a beginner, this was so easy to use and there is so much room for growth within the workout as you try to improve your balance, your focus, your strength. Matthew's instructions are clear and thorough. He explains the physical as well as the mental benefits of each excercise. He helps you to notice your inner body/energy as a distinct life force.

I have been using his DVD for a few months now. I had been a member of a Qi gong class and I needed something that I could do at home for convenience. I must say it has been an amazing journey so far. I have never been one to meditate successfully sitting still. Qi gong is meditation with movement and it has had an amzing impact on my life. Since I started using this DVD, I find my days are more balanced. Even when I have so much to do, I find calmness, focus, clarity and flow without that feeling of overwhelm I tend to get. There are two workouts - Fire and Water. I use fire when I am feeling low or when I am stressed out about something in my life. It has this amazing ability of diffusing my anger/irritation/sadness. By the time I finish the workout, I feel peaceful. I do the water workout when I am in a good place and it helps me to re-enforce my sense of peace and completeness. It is beautiful, it makes you more aware of your mind, your body and spirit. As a result I have a deep appreciation for my body and a desire to nurture and take care of it. It is also helping me grow on my personal spiritual journey.

This DVD is so worth the money! It came really quickly and I have done the water part of the programme, which is gentler than the fire part, for the last 3 days. I think that the exercises are really good for those who are trying Qi gong for the first time like me. There are two programmes fire and water, fire more energising and water more calming. Both programmes last for 40 mins and are very clear and easy to follow, music and scenery also very calming. I liked also that you can turn the instructions off and just have the music when you become more proficient. I use to do ballet and I really like Qi gong as a practice because it incorporates both grace and strength. I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue I use to exercise a lot before I became ill but exercise generally has left me feeling worse, except for doing the Qi gong. So glad I bought this DVD!

I was thinking about going to Qi gong classes and so bought this DVD to try out before hand. Well what an excellent buy! After the first work out I really felt calm and relaxed but physically felt as if I'd done a strenuous workout. Both the fire and water routines are excellent and the instructor, Matthew Cohen, speaks clearly and at a good pace so you can follow the instructions easily. The background music is lovely and you have the option of turning it off. The routines help to improve balance, posture, flexibility and gives you an all over sense of well being.

I've decided not to go to Qi gong classes at the moment as my DVD will suffice practicing a couple of times a week along with my pilates/yogalates. I actually feel calmer within myself and able to think with more clarity of vision.

If your thinking of buying a fitness DVD to keep you moving, flexible and calm with a wonderful sense of well being then this is the one to buy and it is well worth the price. You could even follow the DVD a couple of times a week to compliment your Qi gong/tai chi classes. It is suitable to practice any time of the day or evening as unlike some fitness routines it doesn't burn you out or make you feel hypo.

I had only experienced static Qi Gong exercises before seeing this DVD.
I liked it very much. Matt Cohen explains each move and its benefits. The water and fire exercise sets are a lovely contrast to each other - fire being stronger and the water being more meditative in the stillness and gentleness of the exercises. After 40 minutes, the little legs certainly feel as if they have had a workout. The scenery and slightly aboriginal music in my view , combine beautifully to create a mood of calm strength and the music is not intrusive.
The dvd has a facility to turn off the commentary so that the exercises can be done to the music only, which will avoid listener irritation and consequent reluctance to practice. Matt Cohen and the Chinese lady practising alongside him are easy on the eye. Seeing a lady do these exercises is a great encouragement to practice. Worth buying.

I practice both Qi Gong and Tai Chi at classes, but also enjoy doing my own practice at home. This DVD is good for Qi Gong beginners as the moves are clearly explained and are not too challenging. It is also explained that you can start say doing one of the poses e.g. for a minute and then build up the time. This is good as despite its slow pace, Qi Gong can be quite demanding on both mind and muscle!

Matthew Cohen also spends some time explaining chi, which is also quite useful.

I like the way that the DVD splits into two - Fire and Water. Some of the moves I recognise from my Qi Gong classes, others are new but all are enjoyable. They leave me relaxed, calm but at the same time feeling a positive energy within.
