5 starsGreat Qigong DVD, D.N. Tran (Amazon reviewer) October, 2009

I've heard really great things about the five animal qigong and have been learning it in class. But I wanted to learn different forms since I know there are several versions of the five animal qigong being taught. This DVD is excellent! Not only does it have very clear and detailed instructions, Master Yang goes into the history of the five animals. This helps you understand the whole of the qigong practice.

He explains how each movement benefits a vital organ and the sounds that will help with the practice. The video angling is very good so you can clearly see each movement. I highly recommend this video!

5 starsThis is the Best 5 Animal System I Have Seen, Robin D. Barto (Amazon reviewer) September, 2009
I have been a martial artist for 43 years. Over the years I have studied the 5 animal Qigong movements as presented by several other masters. In my opinion, Dr. Yang's DVD presents the best of the best interpretation of the Five animals. He integrates, in detail, how the yin organs correspond to the movements to achieve physical and emotional health benefits. His humble presentation style, masterful movements, and detailed explanations made me feel like I was in the presence of a true immortal master. These animal forms can quickly be learned by practitioners of various Chinese styles.

5 starsExcellent Instruction, But Not for Absolute Beginners!, James V. Waugaman Jr. (Amazon reviewer) May, 2008
I've been waiting literally for years for this disc to come out! I was very pleased with the outcome of all of Dr. Yang's efforts. The disc is well produced, with almost too much information, if that's even possible!? This is what has been missing from all other videos in the world teaching this very ancient form of qigong...... proper instruction! Dr. Yang imparts quite a lot of detailed information on relaxation, mood, breathing, and even a large section taught by one of his students on the relationship of the 5 Animals to the 5 Elements in Chinese medical theory and which organs they affect. The 5 sounds for the 5 organs are introduced as well. It's absolutely a wonderful disc if for only the information alone! The disc is well over two hours long, so the instruction is more than enough.

...To sum things up, I couldn't recommend this disc enough! Dr. Yang's teaching style is very warm and personal. After just one viewing you will know so much about qigong and Chinese medicine that you'll be the center of attention at your next party! Just be sure to dress as your favorite animal....the monkey maybe?
