I love Miranda Esmonde-White. I have always believed that flexibility is the key to a healthy life. I always thought to myself her technique is the key. Just recently I was looking at buying a DVD season from her. Which one would you recommend????

first third of the "Yang Cheng Fu form" by Erle Montaigue

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5DD6B2748EC7DB8E

one of the best vids for learning from a vid, i've found. you'd have to purchase the dvd to do the whole form but this is certainly an excellent intro imo...if you can't get to a class. in a class you'll pick up the chi feeling quicker due to the "energy share" and maybe "chi transference" from the teacher...either or i don't think you have to be doing it long to feel the benefits. there are 2 tai-chi group finder sites in the uk, might be one in your country too

Michael Wynne's Healing Tao - http://www.healingtaousa.com/. His "Tai Chi For Enlightenment - Primordial Qigong". It's amazing.

I think Jet Lee also has a online Taichi program. If you do your research you will find it.

- the Yang style is the easiest to learn at first - then you realize that you're capable of learning it and the Chen becomes easy to learn as well

Learning tai chi on a DVD is like having a date and goodnight kiss on a cell phone.

I just want to do forms - I don't care about fighting - it depends on how you look at it --- I was just glad to find a good teacher who teaches forms and forms only in the lesson -- I got what I wanted from the dvd playlist -----> http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/sh...11#post1945911

the best things in life are free
I don't really want to interact with a teacher either - the video is what I prefer
I just do the forms as a chi kung exercise anyway -
my goal was always to do Chinese martial arts for health - fighting was never the goal - it's a good chi kung exercise

I don't even like the term martial arts - I just prefer to look at it all as chi kung exercises

I'm not trying to complicate this

How can you do a Tai Chi Form as Qigong ?
There are differences ... Are you confusing Forms as Moves ?
