I now have the time to devote to learning Tai Chi and have been attending a local class for a little while. I bought the DVD for Tai Chi for Beginners to help me to learn the basic moves and principles at home as well. I am very pleased and excited that I can easily follow Dr Lam and I am already feeling the benefits. I hope to purchase other lessons as I progress and use them to improve each day.

So far i am enjoying the DVD. I have Parkinsons Disease and am finding the DVD easy to follow but am taking it slow, ie I do not move on until I have mastered each exercise. Once i have learnt one exercise then i move on. I can't do all the exercise as my balance in some exercises needs improvement and hopefully this will happen as i go along. To date i am not doing it daily (only because my lifestyle is very busy) so i know i need to make an effort to do the Tai Chi daily. But, so far i am finding the Tai Chi for beginners easy to follow. I have not yet done the Tai Chi for Arthritis so cannot comment on that.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
