Thank you i really had fun
thank you, a new beginning
THANK-YOU. I enjoyed watching Ti Chi very much. I have had knee replacement surgery on both knees, so it will help my Balance tremendously along with my daily steps. I think Ti Chi is very graceful, my mother would be proud of that...Thank-you, again.
I forgot my name, I wrote the above review. keep sending the videos.
I enjoyed your Ti-Chi video greatly. I started practicing Ti-Chi along with the video today. Attending a Ti-Chi class in or near Wichita, Kansas is of great interest to me.
I would like to do both to improve my balance which is getting progressively worse as I age. Thank you for your expertise and thoughtful help.
The YMCA has Ti-Chi classes and free with your Silver Sneakers membership.
yes learn lot in little time of video. thank you
I an see where it will help with balance.
I'm curious to try more.
thanks. I had trouble with some other programs that went too fast, too complicated.
As a distance runner balance & breathing are key. Look forward to add Tai Chi to my routine
We like Ti Chi
Looking forward to more videos.
Also looking forward to more videos. This was very relaxing.
Wonderful Relaxing Instructions, Looking forward to More. Thank-You
Going to try it
Very interesting; very worth my try. Thanks.
very good thank you.
TY very much..my husband and I will sign up for the class..
Interesting, going to try it.
Is there a way to save the video as a mp4 file so I can play on my TV?
I would also like to see on video so I can do this by seeing it on a larger screen and I can hear it better thank you I love it
Very relaxing. Thanks.
looking forward to the next video
Good mind and physical exercise, but the video was too short. Thank you.
When I was in rehabilitation for my Rsd / crps I did this and enjoyed it hard at first but after 6 weeks I really love it I tried and it does help most of the time thank you
Great introduction! Thank you!
her presentation is enough to put you to sleep, I could not do her program
Thankl You...very relaxing. How often do you repeat the first lesson?
thank you and please continue sending the videos as it will help improve my balance
Interesting possibly a bit slow 4 me as I am 62 going on 45 in decent shape my shoulders are bad.
It sounds useful. Slow and stable light exercise.
She is way to slow for me I do. Nnt like it
I just had a physical and I was told I needed to improve my balance since I have injuries to both legs. Your video came just in time for me to start. thanks so much and please continue to send videos.
We hope you enjoy them, Sandra. :)
Thanks, looks very doable!
She’s so slow...it’s annoying. Needs to speed up a bit.
I agree, very annoying! Sounds like she thinks we're senile!
It's not supposed to be fast, if you want fast this is not for you.
Thanks, fun! It will take awhile to get comfortable so it flows.
Thank you, plan to give it a try.
Think I am going to like this.
Just receive notice of availibity of tai chi videos. The very exercise that I have been discussing with my PCP and neurologist.
Thanks I have always wanted to do this
Thank you so much. I enjoyed the video. I've been practicing balancing on my own. I've fallen so many times. It's always a stumble.
Too slow for me but I like the movements. As the videos come will they speed up?
Hi there! The workouts will advance as the weeks go on, but they don't necessarily speed up.
Interesting. I’ll give it a try.
This person speaks way too slow. I hope the actual videos are much better.
Agree: speaker is way too slow. I hope the rest of the video is better.
Slowly is the point. Slow movements work and strengthen each muscle.
Very helpful. Keep sending videos.
Will give it a try. Very relaxing.
Looks ok BUT, I'm very hard of hearing and there's no closed caption so I have no idea of what she's doing at all......
Great idea, Tom! We've added captioning to the videos.
i really like to try this i now use a walker & cane.. i`m 71 & i want to walk again ..but do i always have to see this on my computer.??.
Hi Janet. These videos are only online, yes. We hope you are enjoying them!
I practice a 64 posture routine that takes 20 minutes when done properly.
this is wonderful. I would like this every day
Omg soooo slow. She’s Thorazined out
Sony. I did tai chi years ago n wanted to start doing it again. Thanks
Nice easy movement. Looking forward to more.
Thanks. As a qigong/t'ai Chi instructor, I really appreciate you making this effort to introduce t'ai chi to as many folks as possible. This video was a very nice intro. Given that it's a video, captions might be helpful. The instructor in the video certainly conveys the tempo and grace associated with the practice. It might also be useful to have a t'ai chi participant who is seated or wheelchair bound following along from their seated position. Bravo for your efforts. Are DVDs available?
Thanks, Rhonda! We don't have DVDs for sale but we're happy to hear that you've enjoyed this video. You can find more SilverSneakers videos on our blog at https://www.silversneakers.com/blog/.
Too slow 4 my needs. Been watching several minutes and haven't learned anything.
I liked it as is. For those folks feeling like it's too slow, I saw some more active exercises also on this site.
Had trouble watching because the audio and the video were off by about two seconds. It was very irritating.
She was deliberate and slow, I can see why this might work. Thank you
I think this just might work for me maybe one day I can get back in the real gym.
Enjoyed the pace. Some overhead shots might convey more details of the moves.
I have had R/A since I was 30 years old, I'm now 63, practice Tai Chi everyday and teach a class 3 days a week. The best thing that came into my life. Stay focused and the moves work, the secret is to continue movement, life a flow of water from one side to the other......balance improves, your focus for the day improves. ....
Thank you I want to do this looks interesting and easy
Tai Chi is meant to be very slow and very fluid, it's all about focus and balance. It is not geared to any special age. My brother lived in China for a long time and saw many Tai Chi classes in his courtyard, with all ages performing this strengthening, fluid exercise that is practiced all over the world.
Great info, Linda! Thanks for sharing.
Looking forward to the next video. Thank you.
too short--not much on this intro video--we need to really get started!!!
Your email delivery of exercises comes to my desktop computer in a small den. I would like to do the exercises in the living room where there is more room and my wife can join me. Can I stream your videos to my living room TV via my Comcast cable box or my Roku?
Hi Don! You should be able to access them in your email inbox!
Your explanation(s) of the Specific movements is precise and very helpful.
I like it
My massage therapist just recommended tai chi to me at my last appointment. What an excellent opportunity to begin! Thank you for this. Donna
thank you! so glad that you are making this available via silver sneakers!
I have been doing tai chi for quite a number of years so I'm far from being a beginner. I appreciated the instructor's slow demonstration of the postures as performing each one correctly is the secret to combining the movements once you advance to the various forms of tai chi. My first tai chi instructor's warning was to learn and practice the correct postures because it is more difficult to un-learn the wrong thing. As you advance in the practice, you can increase the pace; however, remember that tai chi is a discipline that is executed slowly. There is music for each form that may help you execute the postures at the correct pace.
looking forward to this. I want to have a solid start on correct postures.
Thank you, this is perfect!
how do I get more out of videos. find a silver sneakers near 74055
You can find partnering fitness locations in your area on our website at https://tools.silversneakers.com/LocationSearch.
I'm eager to get into the various videos, I enjoyed the first video very much, thanks
Going to give it a try.
Very interesting....learned a lot. Will practice often. Very helpful.
I like this video and the way she explains the movements
Interesting,i’m Going to try to practice often
Was good gone. Try
Great. Will Enjoy videos and become healthier.
Will the pace pick up as we progress? I know we are going to be moving slowly but isn't there a sequence of moves to practice? I'll try to be patient.
Good start will work with this video.
How does th whole program work? How do I know when to move to the nexxt level, and how to move to the next level?
look forward to practicing Tai Chi. I recommend that the instructor talk at a normal rate of speech rather than super slow with long pauses between each word. Not sure the point of the that. It she feels the need to pause it should be done between sentences, not each and every word like she is reading a list.
Could not hear sound?
I feel ok with the program.
I will sure try this for my lower bady seems to be heavy so this seems to be good
How do I get the videos
enjoyed this very much. Going to really work at it. Thank you.
Is there a way to download and save the videos to my laptop to review them over and over?
Hi there! These videos are currently only available online.
Have always wanted to do this. I will watch again and follow along, thank you.
Just what I needed.
We're happy to hear that, Theda!
Well worth watching and doing. Thank You.
Can't wait to see more.
I loved the first 10 min start, an am ready for a full session. Will it be a half hour, or more?
Enjoyed the first video. I play a great deal of tennis and balance, mobility and agility are so important.
Thank you. Ready for the next video.
I feel much better.
Great first video, I am looking forward to more. This is something I've always wanted to do, I'm 66 and I don't want to lose my flexability and balance.
I am ready to start
I'm frustrated not finding instruction about how to get the next videos.
Hi Terri! We'll be sending you another email with another tai chi video!
I'm going to try it
I'm ready for more videos. How do I obtain them? Can they be downloaded onto my PC?
Hi Barbara! Keep an eye out for more tai chi emails!
My Challenge is, it would really Help, IF, your videos were, either Closed-Captioned Or Subtitled for the Hearing Impaired!...:o
Challenge accepted, Hawkeye! Captions should be available in a few minutes.
I never dreamed I would enjoy Tai Chi, but I I did. Cannot wait for another video, but in the meantime, I will replay this one. Thanks.
i like the slow motion
Amazing so in control
Wonderful, love it.
It is in the moment thanks
Great explanation. I have done Tai Chi in the past but never was told the reason to keep the feet moving first then the hands. Thanks for reasons for the movements.
why is this women speaking as if she is talking to kindergartners?
I think it's just supposed to be soothing and many elderly 'silver sneakers' aren't able to comprehend as well as they used to.
Looking forward to improving my balance and core strength.
Going to try this for my vertigo issues and weakness.
This is great. Do the videos come in any other language? I have neighbors that would enjoy in Spanish :)
Caption please. I’m hard of hearing and had to turn up volume to hear. Please more Tai chi.
I signed up and received video instructions, but only have sound no pictures on video?
Slow is a challenge. I will slow and smell the roses.
I can’t get sound
This woman is very annoying - I've always done some kind of exercise so I don't need someone talking to me like I'm 7!
Would you consider adding closed captioning for those of us who are slightly hard of hearing? Thank you! My husband and I enjoyed this video very much!
I think I will like Ti Chai. I want to continue the videos.
Ti-Chi is great for balance -- can't tell about this yet. It has obviously been digitally showed down, so annoying. You can click on the gear symbol at the bottom of the video on a desktop or laptop to speed it up. I sped it up to 1.5x and it was tolerable. We'll see.
Not authentic Tai Chi. More stretching than the martial art. Good for low impact exercise but a betrayal of Basic Tai Chi principles.
I believe the instructor speaks slowly to get you in the mood. The whole purpose of this exercise is to relax and move.
Will I get this video again so I will have it for reference?
Too slow for me. I will pursue Yoga. Would like Yoga class like the Tai Chi?
Very much enjoyed the video. This should be beneficial to my balance or lack of.
I have no voice on the video. Can you help me as it looks good but I need it to have sound
Bernie Klein, I just did the post below about the sound.
Way to slow for me.
I greatly enjoyed the first of TaiChi, keep them coming.
I enjoyed. I need a DVD so I can play in TV and practice
I enjoyed the intro. and am looking forward to the next video. How do I get it and how do we advance to the next video. Am curious as to how long each one will be.
like to try this, but my internet connection is so slow that it takes 30 minutes to watch a 10 minute video. Can we get this in a download so it doesn't require being online to play?
Enjoyed greatly. How would I get a DVD? It would be much easier for me to use.
Looking forward to my first video
Very informative but can I restart it? Yes I went back to the top and started it over.
Good start! Eager for more.
Great introduction. Just watched the video while I had time at work. At home I'll be able to turn up the volume. Just attended a class at the local senior center/ YMCA, but it was at the end of the series so I didn't get the basic introduction that this video provided. Looking forward to more videos.
Enjoyed the first video...looking for more.
Looking forward to learning more!
Looking forward to next video
This video is too slow. I have taken Tai Chi classes at the gym and I love it. This is not challenging enough.
I can hear but screen is completely blurred what an i do
I have wanted something to help me with my balance. I was able to follow the instruction with the instruction and was grateful to learn why I sometimes fall and how to better avoid falling.
This will be extremely helpful to me and is the perfect pace for a beginner like me.
Should be on youtube so it can be played on my tv. Phone screen way to small.
Way too slow
Have to wait for email, can't watch on cellphone.
Please, please add visual description for the moves for those of us who are visually impaired.
I just did this first video and I enjoyed it. It is not stressful and very relaxing.
I like it so far and am looking forward to the next one.
Please add captions or subtitles.
This woman is talking so slowly, too much talking - boring! Perhaps this is what Tai Chi is all about but I’d rather ride my bike or do yoga
When can I expect more lessons, and will they come as emails?
looking forward for more thank you
Too slow, and the instructor performs arm movements with no explanation as if we already know them.
Enjoyed. Can video's be saved?
Love the easy movements. Nice and comfortable for someone who is just starting and who has 2 total knee replacements. Good pace for a beginner.
I think this is for me, it's a one on one and I can hear everything the instructor says and it is easier to follow the instructions. Much better than in a classroom setting that I have tried before. Thank you so much for this video.
I know I'm a little old but I'm not retarded. Why is this woman talking do slow like I won't understand her. Almost fell asleep waiting for the next move.
Omgosh, you should have levels or something, can't even listen anymore. Jeez, wth?
Should be able to transfer to TV. Would be easier to see!
This was interesting although a little slow for me, can't wait to see the next one.
Enjoy the sample video, when do we receive the next one?
I enjoyed the video.
Enjoyed first video. Am 86 years old and really need help with my balance
Just finished first video, really enjoyed. I have vertigo, so I definitely need help with my balance.
I enjoyed the first video and I'm looking forward to receiving more.
Where is the next video?
Liked your video please keep sending more
I liked your video! Please keep sending more< Thank You!
Is there a second video?’
Very good. Put on YouTube so can be viewed on TV screen.
What kind of shoes/slippers do you recommend for doing tai chi? I am a barefoot type of person and am looking for something light and simple to put on and off that would be good for grounding/balance. I have been going to class here and wearing sandals in the warm weather and just socks in the winter.
I enjoyed your video and especially enjoyed the slowness of it and watching y ou move effortlessly. My teachers move a little too quickly so I just go at my own slower breathing pace.
Also, have you made other videos on tai-chi?
Thank you so much.
