Tai Chi - The 24 Forms

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.

  1. Excellent 24 Forms DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2020

    We purchased the Tai Chi for Beginners and 24 Forms Bundle and the Tai Chi for Beginners and the 24 Forms Book at the end of September 2020. We have been following the 24 Form DVD. Dr. Lam is a very good teacher. He breaks each movement down into small steps and has you repeat each movement several times so you can eventually get the hang of it. As an added plus, he is very funny! In the Repulse Monkey lesson he says "I bet you can't wait to put the feet and hands together" with a smile. We highly recommend Dr. Lam to learn Tai Chi from!

  2. Thrilled to be back to healthy Tai Chi 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2020

    I am thrilled with my new The 24 forms. It is so well done and love how I can go over and over until I get how to do each form.
    When I lived in Alaska I was introduced to Dr. Lam's Tai Chi for arthritis and I was able to attend classes 2 times a week. When we retired and moved to the Northwest, I was disappointed there was no Tai Chi. Last year a man wanted to teach Tai Chi and I was thrilled to get back to it. It is not for arthritis but it is the Yang style. I can do this twice a week and with your DVD I should be back in a few months to enjoying Tai Chi! Thank you Dr. Lam for you making this possible!!

  3. The 24 Forms Video is Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2020

    Thank you for a well done video that is easy to follow.

    Dr. Lam is peaceful and calming throughout the video. I especially like the views with Dr. Lam's back along with the class facing front and that he breaks the movements into sections ending each section with a practice of the entire section's movements.

    Watching Dr. Lam performing the 24 forms at the end is watching meditation in motion.

  4. Great way to learn 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2020

    I first learned Tai Chi in 2003 from Dr. Lam‘s basic tai chi video. I then joined a class at my senior center and have subsequently become the leader in the group. This Tai Chi 24 is the best And easiest way to learn Thai Chi 24.

  6. Excellent Teaching Style 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2019

    I have just finished Tai Chi for Arthritis I and II.
    And purchased the Tai Chi The 24 Forms.
    It is a different style than the Sun style Tai Chi for Arthritis.
    But, even though it is a different style.
    I find that the way it is taught, it is easy to adapt to the new style, and to follow.
    Dr Lam takes you step by step through the basics first.
    He shows you the 6 QiGong exercises and 7 Basic Foundation movements.
    Then Dr Lam using the basic building blocks, takes you through each form step by step with the
    help of an assistant, allowing you to see the form from two perspectives.
    Having each step broken down allows you to take your time and learn each movement
    thoroughly before you move on to the next movement.
    I am looking forward to learning the rest of the Tai Chi 24 Forms.
    Thank You Dr Lam for your excellent teaching style.

  7. Needs more detail perhaps 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2019

    I have had several Dr. Lam DVDs for a long time and like them a lot. I also use another practitioner's DVDs for balance in my learning.

    Dr. Lam is wonderful to watch. He truly flows.

    I wonder if Dr. Lam might give some more detail especially in areas such as Grasp / Stroke the Bird's Tail where the 90º and 180º turns are tricky to say the least.

    I am very negative about the tiny size of the type on your web site on my Mac screen where it could easily double in size.

    This last set of 24 I bought went as a gift so I did not see them.

  8. Thank you for 24 Forms 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2018

    Tai Chi has changed my life for the better. I live where no one else wants to live, but there is internet. Tai Chi has taken away my back and foot pain and I can run up and down stair and have lost weight and much more. I order the Dr. Lam DVD's online and learn the Tai Chi. Dr. Lam is the most thorough teacher of Tai Chi available. I especially enjoy the 24 Form, as it is like a poetic, graceful dance. Dr. Lam teaches this form with patience and his sincere, calm approach is the same as a meditation. With the DVD you can watch and learn over and over again. Not only do you receive Dr. Lam with this DVD, you also have classmates and do not feel all alone while practicing Tai Chi.

    Thank you Dr. Lam

  9. Relaxed Learning 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2018

    I enjoy Dr. Lam’s clear presentation, views from back and front for each movement, concern for safety and avoidance of injury, and step by step development of each form. As a retired teacher myself, I appreciate the lesson structure. Also, the DVD is well filmed and generally easy to use. I look forward to my practice each day.

  10. Great way to learn Tai Chi 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2018

    Dr Paul Lam is a fantastic teacher and the way he shows the moves in front and back views makes it so clear what to do. I only hope I can learn enough to be able to teach Tai Chi myself.
