The Gaiam Tai Chi Beginners Kit is a great way to get started with this fitness technique. The ancient chi masters often used a ball to improve their sensitivity to circular motion. You can too with this soft-grip, one-pound weighted chi ball. The chi ball adds extra resistance to your movements, and its sand-filled spherical shape helps you feel your body-weight shift, while increasing your strength and muscle tone. The beginners kit also comes with a 45-minute, full-length Upper Body Chi for Beginners DVD, led by David Dorian-Ross. The DVD will show you how to use the ball as you move your body like waves, clouds and other forms of nature, guided by Ross’ visualization cues. In addition, the kit includes a 16-page booklet excerpted from Ross’ book “Exercising the Soul.”
