This DVD is great for all levels. It covers warm-up exercises, the Tai Chi Stance, the Five Moving Forces, and the First Circle through the Fourth Circle. There are two complete form practice sections--one in nature and one in the studio.
If you want a great idea of what Tai Chi is and a preview of what the First, Third, and Fourth Circle is watch the trailer above:

Holding the Earth in Balance with a Tai Chi Wave around the World
With Special Live Chinese Music
by Brian Mullins on Erhu
You are invited to be a part of this international event that is aimed at bringing about greater awareness of this beautiful and healthful practice. On Saturday, April 27th, 2013, at 10am, this international event will start in New Zealand, continuing around the world as one continuous wave of human movement focused on healing the planet as we heal ourselves. We will use the image of the globe held in the palm of our hands (like the Tai Chi ball) to bring balance within and without. With the breath we will bring wholeness and return to the stillness within.
