Very easy to follow
The setting of the video was very pleasant and peaceful. The explanations of the movements were excellent and easy to follow. I really appreciated that when they would say turn to the left (or right) that you were actually following the direction they were moving, and not THEIR left (or right). So many exercise tapes tell you to move to one direction and they are not doing it in a mirror image so you are actually aimed in the opposite direction and I find those videos confusing, so I was very pleased that Dahn Yoga for Beginners made it so easy to follow the directional movements.
I felt that overall this was a wonderful video and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a Tai Chi-type exercise. It is more like Tai Chi than traditional yoga, so please keep that in mind as well.
