I'm 87 ,and after waiting for winter to pass , was shocked to find myself not able to do yard work as I have in the past. Too much rocking chair I guess and this old body isn't what it used to be.A half hour would wear me out. Practiced your lessons frequently for a month and half or so and now can put in three hours without requiring help to get back to the rocking chair.
Now going to see what "Tai Chi
for Energy" will do for me.

I really like this dvd for beginners. The lessons are slow enough for me to follow without getting confused. It's easy to follow and I would recommend it for everyone. I'm still on lesson one but I am already thinking that after I master the beginners lessons I will be ordering the one for arthritis. I'm really glad that my husband found this on u tube.

Great teacher, pretty easy to follow and the front and back angles help. I do wish they showed an angle from above. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

I found Dr Paul Lam on You-tube. I was looking Tai Chi beginning instructions. After viewing a few different instructors I found Dr Lam the easiest to follow. I have purchased the DVD Tai Chi for Beginners. I am currently working on lesson 2. I would definitely recommend for beginners.

I used to dance almost every imaginable kind of dancing there is, rock n roll, country western, clogging, west coast and east coast swings, line dancing and even belly dancing and was just beginning to learn some of the latin dancing when I was hit with fibromyalgia and pretty much stopped everything, i even have a hard time just walking without being in some level of pain. I happened on to Dr. Lam;s videos and actually started crying because there is something I can do now to get back my life again. and on top of everything I broke my foot over 7 months ago and am still not walking as I should. I am so excited to get this thing started. I have just begun with just the warm up exercises, they will help me get limbered up so I can advance. I cant tell you how excited I am about my new venture. Will put up posts to tell how I am doing. Thank you for following your hearts desire. I know this will help me as it has helped thousands before me.

My wife and I started with the first free lesson on You Tube then we bought the 8 lesson beginners DVD. We love Dr Lam and the video menu is laid out great and user friendly. Taking it slow still on second movement (lesson) for now.

I really like the DVD. Many Tai Chi videos you must already know Tai Chi to do them. Dr. Lam has made his beginner video so that you can learn step by step. The only thing is I wish there was some background music to help relax as we practice with Dr. Lam.
