I did Tai Chi for 18 months a while back, but had to give it up as my work base moved further away from where the class was held and a health condition prevented me from continuing to attend.  Unfortunately for me, my co-ordination, muscle memory etc suck so whilst I tried to keep it up for a while solo, I couldn't remember the moves well enough.

So, I'd like a recommendation for an instructional DVD, podcast or resource of some sort (e.g. YouTube link, anything) - the problem is, that as well as my co-ordination sucking, I'm unable to follow the moves if the instructor faces the camera, as my brain really struggles to translate that into what I should be doing to complete the same move.  So what I'd like is a resource where the instructor faces away from the camera (yes, they'd have their back to the camera), so that I could straight-up copy the moves.

In summary (in case TL;DR - understandable): I'm after Tai Chi instruction in which the instructor faces away from the camera.

Does anyone know of anything like that?
