Deeply versed, passionate and informed, Mr. Rones is a committed and caring teacher of the Asian Mind-Body arts, including qigong, tai chi, and yoga.J.Barr, November, 2007
Few sources I've come across over my years of study and practice have the quality and simplicity of instruction that this book/DVD combination possess.A Great Introduction, E. Bromfield (Amazon reviewer) October, 2007
Sunrise Tai Chi is a highly informative and flexible (so to speak) introduction to the topic. As a relative beginner, who is both a cancer patient and an academic neurologist, I have found Rones' style to be direct, logical, and easy to follow. He breaks down every exercise into manageable components that can be adapted to any level of experience, physical condition, or age. The visual effects and music also enhance the instruction.Dr. Robert Darnell, May 2004
Sunrise Tai Chi is a modern and thorough handling of an ancient subject. The production staff at YMAA Publications has made a successful marriage of the visual and martial arts. Filmed in a high definition format, this production uses the best of the advancements of special effects to illustrate the esoteric. The animated visual representation of chi movement brings a new dimension in illustrating this foundational component of health, vitality and longevity. Ramel Rones is an ardent keeper of the flame of Dr. Yang's vision for preserving this eastern wisdom for students all over the world. In fifty well-arranged chapters, Rones steadily and confidently opens the door for both the curious and the committed. The material is accessible and usable at its first hearing, and still fascinating and instructive at its one hundredth. This film is a must for the libraries of teachers and students alike.
