“Just watched one of the Tai Chi Tigers DVD’s, it’s brilliant – the perfect antidote to two hours on the allotment .It is absolutely mesmerizing, and the music is wonderful, makes me realize just how much in terms of years I have to learn, but great to see that some sequences are repeated in the second and third parts. This will help enormously when I am practising; as you say it’s not a replacement for coming to classes, but it is a wonderful reminder of what we should be achieving.” Joyce W
