  1. Best Way to Practice and Learn 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2023

    I have been taking a Tai Chi for Beginners class at my local senior center and I love it. After working on Tai Chi for Rehabilitation for several weeks, our instructor began teaching us Tai Chi for Arthritis. She had mentioned the DVDs several times, so I purchased three, including this one, in order to improve my practice at home. I am so happy I did!

    I love the way Dr. Lam breaks the program down into individual movements. Repetition is really the best way to learn because our muscle memory kicks in after a while. In his message at the end of Lesson 1, Dr. Lam says to practice the lesson for a week before starting Lesson 2. Follow his advice. Take time to learn each movement and breathe! You will begin to feel stronger, calmer, and more balanced with each lesson.

  2. Great for balance 5 Star Review

    The program is really helping with my balance. Easy to follow.

  3. Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention Part 1 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2023

    Video is easy to follow with clear visual instructions. Its instructions are given in small increments for learning. First you are shown the steps three times then follow me steps three times and then you show what you have learned or just needed repeats part of the instructions.

  4. Yes! Do the Program!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2023

    I was experiencing increasing knee pain and unsteadiness and was diagnosed with severe tricompartmental osteoarthritis of both knees. I was blessed to find Dr. Lam’s Tai Chi for Arthritis program and can give a strong recommendation to anyone who is hesitating: Yes! Do the program!!

    Dr. Lam presents the forms very slowly and very thoroughly, and radiates kindness, calmness, patience, and encouragement. Each lesson includes a warm-up, a run-through of the previous lessons, learning a new form, a cool-down, and a message from Dr. Lam to guide the week’s practice.

    Over the source of only six weeks, my pain and balance have both begun to improve. An unexpected benefit was that it also helped me to be grounded and centered when my mother suffered a sudden week-long illness resulting in her death. In moments of high stress, I found myself seeking a private place to run through the few forms I had learned to quiet my mind, and ground and center myself. Daily practice continues to strengthen my mind, body, and spirit to manage my stress and grief following her death.

    Thanks to this program, I am now certain that I will be a lifelong learner and practitioner of Tai Chi. I look forward to practicing and feeling my daily improvements. I cannot recommend this program highly enough!

  5. Study Enhancement 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2023

    I have been training in Tai Chi for a little over two years now, and since I have added Dr. Lams program to my studies, they have really enhanced my personal studies away from class.

  6. TCA 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2023

    I had to replace my TCA DVD, as I gave my copy to a senior group to follow. Dr Lam’s instructional videos are brilliant!

  7. really well done, complete and easy to understand 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2023

    Very good

  8. Superb Learning DVD for my Beginner class 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2022

    I find this DVD very instructive. I have been a certified Instructor with the Tai Chi for Health Institute for going on seven years. I encourage my beginner students to purchase this DVD so they can watch and practice at home. Since my beginner classes are on Wednesday and Friday mornings, when they leave my class on Friday, it is five days before they are back in class. I have found that even if my students don't perform the form with the DVD, watching the demonstration and listening to Dr Lam helps tremendously. I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who wants to learn the 12 forms.

  9. Great for Beginners 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2022

    [Tai Chi for Arthritis]
    Dr. Lam's presentation is thorough and easy to understand. The forms are shown from back and front, and even sideways at times.

    I find these to be helpful even though I am taking a live course. Being able to see the forms from all angles allows me to correct my stance, movements, etc.

  10. Excellent way to learn and improve 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2022

    I purchased this to prepare for the instructor workshop. I had been taking classes and wanted to be available to help when the instructor had to be gone. Very easy to follow. Dr. Lam explains everything so clearly and demonstrates the moves so that he can be easily followed. The more time I spend with this DVD, the more I want to expand my Tai Chi knowledge.
