This DVD provides important details that you won't find elsewhere on things like dantien rotations, etc. The teaching is very clear due to the split screen work you see above. One caveat -- get the book that goes with the disc. Yang leaves the very important theory of the practice in the book. You need both to succeed in this qigong.
AWESOME DVD! Follow along practices, very easy to learn. In depth information for a deeper understanding and knowledge of Qigong and Tai Chi and more! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!
