I found the demonstrations and instructions very clear and precise; doing the excersises was relaxing yet physically rewarding. Initially I thought that it seemed too simple but then realised the benefits to my body.
Initial I felt that there was too much repetition of the original 'Warm Up' exercises which were repeated with each exercise. However by the time that I had completed the course I felt this to be of benefit as it meant that I could view any of the individual Lessons from beginning to end without interuption. I liked the way that the movements from each previous Lesson were repeated as part of the following Lesson, building up to the final complete movement; this reinforced the moves and showed how each flowed into the next.
Although this DVD is excellent on its own, by the time that I arrived at the last Lesson I had decided that I would like try 'Tai Chi for Arthritis' which is done while standing, as the arthritis and knee injury have improved.
There are three sections to each lesson - a warm up, a progressive middle part which gradually develops over each lesson and a cool down at the end. All the way through the emphasis is on taking it carefully and slowly, never straining and just doing what you are capable of. Dr Lam explains all the moves in a very detailed way and everything seems to flow together very smoothly.
It took me several months, but I was gradually able to progress through the lessons. (It took me about a month just to be able to physically last past the warm up!). I do enjoy them, and did find that my stamina and flexibility has improved.
However, and this is my biggest complaint - there's only 6 lessons on the DVD. At the end of the 6th lesson there's an announcement which says if you've enjoyed this DVD... go check out some proper classes! (Or words to that effect... I can't remember the exact wording!) It's such a shame, because I really liked the lessons and actually much prefer to exercise in the privacy of my own home. I do have another of Dr Lam's tai chi DVDs, but this is the one I keep coming back to for its ease of use.
