Tai Chi - The 24 Forms
Free first lesson
The ancient practice of tai chi is clinically proven to be one of the most effective exercises to improve health, fitness and relaxation. The 24 Forms is the most widely practiced tai chi form. While there are many variations, the form you will learn by working with this DVD is the one of the most authentic.
Following an introduction to tai chi and its benefits, Dr Lam teaches unique qigong exercises and foundational movements which will enhance your energy and make easier learning. He teaches the 24 forms from different angles — using close ups, repetitions and diagramed illustrations while dividing each form into small sections allowing you to follow along with ease. Throughout the lessons, Dr Lam will explain the tai chi principles and how to use them to improve your tai chi.

I started the Tai Chi 24 forms 6 weeks ago. I practice every day & am 3/4 through the DVD. The lessons are easy to follow and I like that you can play a move over & over until you get it right.
It feels like Dr. Lam is solely teaching you.
I previously attended one Tai Chi class. To many people in front of me to see the instruction and three different levels of students were there, so it was quite confusing. Also the class was only once per week so learning would have been slow.

I am so loving Dr. Paul Lam's tai chi training dvd! I began with the free lesson on youtube and then I requested the 6 forms dvd from my local library. After spending much time learning the 6 simple forms I absolutely had to expand my knowledge of tai chi and it's benefits, plus I wanted to learn more from Dr. Lam. When I began tai chi, I was 6 months in to recovering from a severe karate injury to my left knee. I was barely able to walk without limping and I felt my prognosis was hopeless. After practicing tai chi everyday for 2 months, my knee pain and swelling has almost gone completely away! I can see myself fully recovering and moving freely without pain. I know that Dr Lam's teachings have played a huge role in my recovery. I love the way Dr Lam explains every move with great detail and goes over each form slowly with repetition. I hope to attend the conference in Asheville this summer as I would love to meet Dr Lam and thank him in person for how much his teaching has changed my life and given me much hope!

I wish he would have done a step by step instruction o nParting Wild Horse Mane' Also I wish he would have gone back to the beginning after each lesson.

Tai Chi has been very instrumental in revitalizing and giving me a calm well being. The more I practice the more I discover inner strength and a certain calmness.

I began learning Yang 24 in-person at a local wellness center starting November 2016 and I bought this DVD to help me practice at home. Attending class is absolutely wonderful but it only meets twice a week and I wish to practice daily so this DVD is invaluable to me! As always, Dr. Lam explains the forms expertly to make learning as easily and comfortable as possible.

I recently purchased that revised 24 forms and I'm finding it very helpful. I am an instructor and I like to review the forms before I teach them to make sure my own form is correct. I always want what's best for my students.

Dr. Lam's patience encourages the student to be patient. The DVD has 6 QiGong movements. It is a great DVD for anyone wanting to learn the 24 forms. Thank you.

The 24 forms DVD will be the longest form for me yet. I'm enjoying learning from such a patient gentle-spirited instructor as Dr. Lam. I recommend this DVD as a next step for anyone who has dabbled in Tai Chi for Health. Easy to learn and fun.

I recently began my Tai Chi journey also. This Is my third DVD with the 2nd from Dr. Lam.
The 24 form is great so far with easy to use visual instructions and simple to review.
Great for stress relief for a busy and hectic work life.

The video is well engineered and easy to move around in. If starting at the beginning the video can take a person to complete the form 24 in a detailed way.s
