  1. Tai Chi for Diabetes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2018

    In preparation for taking Tai Chi for Diabetes Instructor training, I thought I should see the video, so I borrowed it from my local library. It is difficult for me to practice in front of the TV – but Dr. Lam’s teaching style was engaging. I had studied the Tai Chi for Diabetes form for 2 years prior, but he took my learning to a new depth. It was a masterclass! Even though this is one of the older videos, it is a valuable addition to Tai Chi training. It deepened my stance, and helped me to re-think Waving Hands Like Clouds, as well as giving me some of the reasons for why we practice the way we do.

  2. Diabetes DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2018

    It's well set out and I found it easy to learn. Love how its broken up into movements by Dr Lam. Am doing the Basic Movements daily, and feel great.

    My only disapointment was with the Warm Up and Cool Down scenes. They should be seperate on the menu. I like the warm up in the 24 forms DVD best.

    I have a small library of Dr Paul Lam's tai chi DVDs which I use to revise the forms that I have learnt in the past and also to learn new forms. I do not have easy access to classes where I now live and Dr Lam's DVDs, books and other study materials continue to be my guide. My latest purchase of the Tai Chi for Diabetes bundle does not disappoint. The same system that worked for me with my first ever purchase still works for me now because of Dr Lam's clear and simple instructions. Thank you so much Dr Lam for all your effort in putting these instructional DVDs together.

    Detail of every movement is really good and I enjoy practicing with Dr Lam. Following Dr Lam when he demonstrates the full movement is a great way to learn the lovely slow rhythm of the movements.

    I refer back to the DVD all the time to check correct movement and to listen to instruction from Paul as I learn things all the time. It is such a great teaching tool, not just for instructors but for everyone.

    I found this program excellent,each step fully explained and easy to understand. Also to see a back view of the teacher is most helpful and as a senior I appreciate the gentle exercise.
