Ai Chi gets its name from the dry-land sport, Tai Chi. The water-based program combines deep, rhythmic breathing techniques with slow, broad movements. These motions help center the entire body and allow participants to appreciate the water in a flowing, natural progression. Ai Chi benefits both the body and mind. It provides participants with physical and psychological benefits, including increased oxygen levels, stability, heightened metabolic rates, flexibility, and overall range of motion.
Created for use by aquatic therapists, personal trainers, and fitness instructors, Ruth Sova's Personalized Protocols CD-ROM provides custom fitness and rehabilitation plans to meet individual clients' needs. The simple point-and-click program allows users to select individual exercises - including only those that are appropriate for the current client.
The Ruth Sova Ai Chi II DVD picks up where the first DVD left off and introduces more experienced practitioners to new levels of Ai Chi. The second DVD in the Ruth Sova Ai Chi program helps extend the traditional teachings of Ai Chi. The water based program helps its participants combine rhythmic breathing techniques with slow, purposeful movements. Its goal is for participants to appreciate the water in a flowing, natural progression.

The Ai Chi III DVD changes the Ai Chi focus and allows its viewers to experience the sport at a new level. The 65-minute DVD focuses on what's called “The Visualization Journey”. This unique approach to Ai Chi centers on the journey's four pathways: preparing, healing, cultivating, and applying. The DVD is aimed at participants who are already well versed in Ai Chi. The above and underwater footage helps viewers get a full sense of the sport's movements.
Including both pool and lecture segments, the Backhab II DVD by Ruth Sova builds on BackHab I's progressions for a further challenge.
