A teaching DVD based on Qi Gong
on 8 March 2017
This is a very clear instruction DVD intended for the over 60's. The teacher is friendly, not patronising and has a sense of humour, taking you through a routine with the detailed explanation in a later segment. The emphasis is on healing from the perspective of Qi Gong although some of the movements are from Tai Chi. There is a segment on acupuncture points on the body which you can massage yourself and he explains how certain exercises stimulate particular functions - according to ancient Chinese theories. I like the detail of posture and correct movement but am not sure I shall be using it more than a few times as long as I am a beginner. The actual sequence is only 4 minutes and I prefer a longer session to make it worth putting on the DVD. If I can memorise it I will do the form and am grateful for the segment on common errors made by seniors. There are a few seated movements.
