I have never been particularly interested in the martial arts, but after this program I am absolutely a convert to the healing effects of Tai Chi. Years ago I was in a terrible car accident that left me with lasting pain in my hips, and back, tension all along my spine, and a feeling of weakness in my injured shoulder. Everything from my balance, to my mood, and my daily function was impaired. About a year ago my husband found the Jensens and there is no way to accurately represent the improvement I’ve experienced without seeming exaggeration.
I thought I’d try this for a little while and then get tired of it, but I was wrong. The lessons are broken up into easily digestible chunks with enough detail about posture, balance, and breath to keep them from being boring in the beginning. Not only that, they’re full of encouragement. When I’d fall away from practice for a while, I found myself more able to return because instead of being met with mantras about the absolute necessity of daily practice I was met with gentle reminders to go at my own pace, and that doing a little is better than doing none at all.
I’ve stuck with this program longer than any program before, and since it’s become a part of my daily routine I don’t see that changing any time soon. The Jensen’s have clearly poured a lot of heart into this program, and it shows. There’s so much available for everyone at every level of interest, and as my balance, strength, and physical exuberance return I look forward to engaging with the more advanced materials.
I absolutely could not recommend this program enough.
