  1. Love the routine but found the CD difficult to follow 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    I am new to Tai Chi and am taking classes from a wonderful instructor (trained by Dr Lam). This is the third Tai Chi "routine" i have learned, first was Tai Chi for Energy, next Tai Chi for Osteoporosis and now Tai Chi for Diabetes. I have purchased each CD so I could practice on days there were no classes. I found Tai Chi for Diabetes CD very difficult to follow compared to the other two. The most difficult form (stroking the bird's tail) was really hard to learn - I couldn't see the hand motions when the demonstrator had his back to me and have enough left/right issues to find it impossible to "translate" movements (left to right) when looking at Dr Lam facing me. Also, the warmup exercises were different than on the other CDs.

  2. Ah-mah-ZING 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2017

    I have fibromyalgia and have had to do warmups and forms very slowly building up gradually. I looked back at when I first started which was Dec 5, 2016 until today, I cannot believe how much better I feel and how much stronger feel. I only wish I lived in Australia to go to Dr. Lam's classes in person. You are the best Dr. Lam Thank you so much for pursuing your vision and helping people like me to live a much more active life style.

    I have Type 2 Diabetes and my doctor wants me to exercise. I also have osteopenia and arthritis in the lower back and hips. I just started this DVD and found it easy to follow. I feel good that I can exercise safely and I am looking forward to stabilizing my balance and gaining some flexibility.

    I bought this DVD so I could practice at home. The Tai Chi for diabetes is one of the Tai Chi forms we learned in class. Dr. Lam does a great job explaining and demonstrating each lesson. I highly recommend this DVD if you want to learn or just practice these lessons.
