Golden Flower DVD Testimonials
This DVD is beautiful! I so enjoyed viewing it. I only wish I had learned Tai Chi a long time ago.
– Kathleen Murphy, Mind/Body Programs Coordinator, City of Boulder Recreation Department
This is an exceptional DVD that is both graceful and emotionally moving. I very much enjoyed following along with Cynthia, and was able to learn each Tai Chi move. It was beautiful to watch her put all the moves together in nature. The Tai Chi is poetry in motion. The DVD contains David Darling’s Grammy award winning music and the authentic Chinese Erhu.
– Nancy Harrison, Tai Chi student
I think you can consider your DVD project a success: the sections that had your verbal instruction were right on target, especially for those who are just in the beginning stages of their tai chi journey.
I enjoyed the variety of scenery that was encompassed in the DVD. So often, the production of such DVDs just focuses on one location. It also reflected the elements (metal/wood/water, etc.) so well. And the music fit the tai chi practice spot on.
My very favorite parts were the last ones on the DVD, in which you just did the Tai Chi movements, and there was no instruction voice-over. The video captured the true peacefulness of your expressions and the grace with which you moved through the practice.
Kudos to you on this loving effort … I can’t imagine that the purchasers of your DVD will be disappointed in any respect. I remain a fan of yours.
