This DVD is filmed in a live class and Daryll Mitchell leads the group through the six exercises and meditation. In China the qigong practise may be for .5 hr and the meditation for up to 2 hrs.
This DVD has been put together for Mr Mitchell's private Qi Gong students and is filmed in an actual classroom. It is not a professionally finished DVD - however it offers an interesting insight into a working class and practice of this lovely form of 'healing' Qi Gong.
