Simplified Tai Chi 24 for Beginners DVD is the perfect way to experience the amazing health benefits of a shortened tai chi form, no matter your current fitness level. The ancient art of tai chi is often described as “moving meditation” because it stimulates your mind, body, and spirit.
The simplified 24-posture form is taught and demonstrated in detail by Master Helen Liang in short, easy-to-follow sections. This popular form is shown clearly from multiple angles, with step-by-step instructions.
With this 6-minute tai chi form, you’ll feel stronger and more energized. Tai chi is known for improving balance and keeping the mind sharp and positive. This tai chi form is excellent for beginners at any age, those who want a low-impact whole-body exercise, and those with limited time.
The short forms are based upon traditional Yang-style Tai Chi movements, which have roots in the ancient Chinese martial arts. "Taiji Chang Quan" existed in many variations, and eventually evolved into Taijiquan. Other forms of the same era such as "Heavenly-Inborn Style", "Nine Small Heavens", and "Acquired Kung Fu" also show similarities to what later became Taijiquan. The principles of softness, sticking, adhering, and using the opponent's own momentum against himself were established in these precursory martial styles. Bodhidharma's teaching at the Buddhist Shaolin Temple around 550AD, which detailed the theory of using the mind to lead the Qi to energize the physical body, is widely considered the origin of all Internal Martial Arts, including Tai Chi.
Helen Liang is a gold medal winning grandchampion martial artist, and daughter of a true martial arts legend. Grandmaster Liang, Shou-Yu's martial arts ancestry originated five generations ago. He started his traditional Emei kungfu and Qigong training with his grandfather in 1948. Grandmaster Liang then sought out other renowned masters and other styles from Shaolin and Wudang. In the early sixties, Grandmaster Liang began his study and research in the few major styles of Taiji such as Yang, Chen, Sun, and Wu style, Buddhist Esoteric Qigong, and Taoist Qigong. Grandmaster Liang has many times been a gold medalist in Wushu and Taiji competitions held in Sichuan province. The Liang family lives and teaches in Vancouver, Canada.

A well constructed video for learning the 24 form of thai chi. the movements are very well explained and a nice touch to showing the interpretation of the martial art. Compared with the DVD this is excellent value for money and is well worth downloading a programme to use on ones PC.

Basically get a quick little intro video about Tai Chi 24 form, then asks you for 9.99 for the next one. I considered purchasing until I read how the developer responded to their customer base in their reviews in many of their apps. Needless to say I will choose another app with a more professional and courteous team, and I will be staying far away from any of the YMAA apps.

This is just a tai chi video as an Android app. You can watch the first two minutes but have to pay $9.99 to unlock the remainder. There are no interactive features. May as well watch tai chi videos on YouTube for free and save $9.99.
