  1. so easy to follow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2016

    I have always wanted to do Tai Chi but I am so uncoordinated. Tai Chi for beginners is perfect, I can do it at my own pace and learn the forms without making a fool of myself.

  2. A compete well being 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2016

    We have always wanted to do Tai chi, but have been unable to find a teacher with a deep understanding of Tai chi philosophy.
    Dr Lam teaches the fundamental of Tai chi movements as well as the total well being. After each lesson we feel we have achieved in looking after our body and our mind.
    The DVD's lessons are very well set out, with a clear and precise method of teaching by Dr Lam.
    Thank you Dr Lam and your team.

  3. A perfect start. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2016

    I found this dvd very helpful and informative. I have start tai chi once a week in my home town and the instructor follows Dr Lam. I can now practice at home as well as going to my weekly class.

  4. Good to learn moves and practise at home 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2016

    I first saw Dr Lam's DVD's on the internet when I was searching for how to do Tai Chi. Before I purchased Tai Chi for Beginners, I began a class for older adults, in Tai Chi, and was happy when I discovered the teacher was using Dr Lam's DVD's in our lessons. So much easier to learn with our teacher and also being able to see Dr Lam's DVD's as we learn.

    I now put the DVD on daily, and practise at home as well as also attending my weekly class. I am extremely happy I decided to do Tai Chi, as I am not very physically active, and have found that I have much more energy and determination to move my body in a relaxed way. It is very calming on the mind and body, and very comfortable and quite easy to do. I intend to follow and practise Tai Chi as long as I am able, whether in classes or with Dr Lam's DVD at home.

    Most of my fellow students have been doing Tai Chi for years, using Dr Lam's DVD's and are quite elderly. I am 67, quite a few years younger than my class mates, however, I am enjoying their company, and am definitely making huge improvements in my flexibility and muscle strength. I also enjoy being able to watch and follow the DVD at home, at my leisure.

  5. Perfect for beginners 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2016

    This is the perfect approach for anyone wanting to become acquainted with the fundamentals of the ancient practice of tai chi. The DVD is well-planned: each lesson is methodically and didactically well-structured and easy to follow. I highly recommend it. Thank you Dr Lam!

  7. Easy to Follow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2016

    Having never done Tai Chi before, I find the DVD very easy to follow and Dr Lam's instructions are clear. I like the fact that you learn a new movement each lesson and you can practise it as many times as you like before moving onto the next lesson. Once you go to the next lesson, you can then practise previous movements as well as learning a new movement.

  10. Easy to follow Tai Chi instructions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2016

    Thank you Dr Lam for explaining the moves slowly and clearly. The diagrams and having more than one person demonstrating assists in doing the exercises correctly. I used to think Tai Chi was just a gentle exercise for old people. Coming from a background of doing Rock Climbing, Abseiling and Classical Ballet I have found it is a good workout. It helps me to stretch and warm up so I can avoid injuries when doing fieldwork. Many research students complain about having a sore back and knees from sitting down all day. Doing Tai Chi helps me to concentrate when I'm studying and avoid tense muscles in the neck, shoulders and face which cause headaches. It's convenient to have these DVDs because I can do these exercises when it suits me.
