  1. Easy to follow and enjoyable! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th May 2018

    For the price, this video is worth it for the preventive medicine. Dr. Lam is a very great teacher/doctor. You can tell he has a big passion for Tai Chi. You will learn about culture too. Tai Chi is so beneficial, and gentle on the body. It is easy for a person at any age. I appreciate the parts where Dr. Lam says "let us do that again" then I can really practice.

  2. A Step To A Larger World 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2018

    I understand this is the teaching of the International Style practiced by millions around the world. I am just starting to learn this style and am excited at the prospect of joining a larger community. The instruction so far (basic steps) are thorough and complete. Dr. Lam's joy at presenting is apparent with his gifted training style. I look forward to mastering the complete set. It's fun and beautiful!

  3. A Personal Journey 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2018

    Hello, I began with the beginners set a year ago, early 2017, and practiced, practiced, and practiced again while always going back to the lessons for more instruction.This year, I felt I was ready to learn the 24 forms offered on DVD because I knew there was more to learn and gain in physical wellness. By that I mean I benefit having more flexibility by learning Tai Chi at 69 years of age, something I have lost gradually over the decades.
    Thank you for your patience to teach in a manner that is easy to understand.

  4. Great Reference 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2018

    After studying 24 form for a year with my instructor, then attending the in depth work shop with Dr Lam in Bend, Or, I still refer to this CD to assist me in gaining a deeper depth and refinement of the forms.

  5. Almost as good as being in class/no better 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Oct 2017

    He's very scripted in Tai chi. His instruction is top notch.. I've learned more from his DVD then class's like I'm his only student.
    Well worth investment

  6. The DVD is of great quality and performance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2017

    One of the best instructional for health Tai Chi DVD, and should be placed in a time capsule, so future generations could learn the authentic 24 form Yang style Tia Chi.

    The step-by-step instruction makes it easy to learn at your own pace.

    Dr Paul Lam also performs a demonstration of the 24 form Yang style in fluid and mesmerizing movements, like poetry in motion.

    So happy to have purchase this DVD.

  7. How To Learn Modified Yang Style Tai Chi in easy steps 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    I am practicing with Dr. Lam on this CD and find it most helpful in my personal development on Tai Chi. I appreciate the step wise teaching method; the ability to learn one piece of the form at a time; the ability to return many times to the same lesson. I appreciate the way this CD is presented. It is presented in a professional way. Having Dr. Lam turn his back and others facing front is most helpful.
    Thank you, Dr. Lam for another stellar teaching Tai Chi CD.

  8. Another great DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    This is the third DVD I have purchased since starting Tai Chi for Health. I only started using the 24 forms DVD and have been pleased with how I am progressing so far getting Dr. Lam's instruction through video. It was also helpful to have the Qi Gong movements broken down as I have been using this movement with the Tai Chi for Arthritis and Energy DVDs. Great DVD and recommend it to anyone just starting out or wish to add another form to their exercise routine.

  9. Review of The 24 Forms 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2017

    I thought Dr. Lam's teaching methods are nothing less than superb. I was able to follow his instructions very easily and loved that he demostrates facing the student and then turns around so we can see it from his back. I also love the fact that he brings in other instructors so we can see their methods as well. I am a novice certified instructor and am using Dr. Lam's progressive step method for my teaching. It is an excellent way to teach and I find that my students are progressing quite well. I also tell my students that I am also still a student of Dr. Lam and will be learning and studying Tai Chi for the rest of my life. My main goal is to teach Dr. Lam's method so my students can learn TCA safely. I thoroughly enjoyed the DVD and I feel that it was filmed beautifully, as if Dr. Lam were in my living room.

  10. Feel 20 years younger! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2017

    This has been the best exercise. I am 60 and have arthritis in hips and knees. My legs are so much stronger and everyday tasks are much easier. Love the calming results as well. Excellent therapy to remove stress. Really love practicing the moves. Dr. Lam is an excellent teacher. Videos are very easy to follow. I practice everyday and can't wait to do it. Always dreaded most other forms of exercise I made myself do. I sleep more soundly and have a great feeling of well being overall. I recommend this to everyone!
