    In this DVD, Francesco & Daisy Lee-Garripoli take you step-by-step through the basic qigong moves that help stimulate your body and mind. The moves are easy to understand and the explanations of how the moves affect various aspects of your life are clear. This DVD is for anyone wanting to improve themselves. The slow concentrated movements create a full workout without having to leave your home or pay for a gym membership. I highly recommend this DVD.

    Wouldn't recommend

    For a beginners exercise, there were some moves that challenged my coordination. There are two people demonstrating the moves which is somewhat destracting and the mountain backdrop, albeit beautiful, is sometimes the focus of the camera. This isn't a flowing, continuous exercise, but a demonstration of individual movements. I am still interested in qi gong but I will look for other videos of instruction.
