    Just what the doctor ordered. Wonderful relaxation exercises for the mind as well as the body. I am feeling so much better and think much more clearly. Thank you.

  3. Simple. Helpful. Mindful. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2020

    Simple to follow instructions. If you are committed to learning, Dr. Lam's ability to teach you is excellent.

    Helpful for relieving my growing aches and pains as I age. I have had achilles tendonitis for over a year. The warm up exercises alone have helped ease the pain (no other exercise has provided long-term relief).

    Dr. Lam reminds you to be mindful and in the moment throughout the lessons. I have been learning to slow down and focus only on the movements. I am benefiting both physically and mentally.

  4. Dr. Lam is a calming force. Lessons are clear and easy to learn. 5 Star Review

    I am 74 years old and just started learning Tai Chi (Tai Chi for Life). The lessons are easy and fun to learn. They do take practice become smooth. I start my day with Tai Chi and causes my day to become calmer, run smoother and I accomplish more. I have been learning and practicing for around two weeks and I feel improvement in my flexibility and balance. Most importantly I am enjoying Tai Chi.

    Posted by on 24th Apr 2020

    While my husband and I have been using these lessons only one week, we are finding that we look forward to our daily practice. Dr. Lam radiates a friendly Sense of calm. He is beautiful to watch as he demonstrates his lessons. We find our time with him calming in the midst of a steady barrage of bad political news and the uncertainty of living with Covid 19.

  8. Great Intro Form 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2019

    I use this form at a clinic where I teach a Better Balance Program for patients that are referred to me by a Dr.
    Its easy to learn, gives the patients something to work on at home and covers the basic principals.
    The stepping back helps address the fear of falling anxiety.
