The Form

Dr Lam worked with the creator of the 73 Forms which was based on the classical Sun style tai chi.  It has unique qigong (the practice to cultivate internal energy) together with many powerful features. Sun style tai chi is beneficial and suitable for almost anyone and is complementary to other styles.

 

At the Workshops                                                                

Dr Lam will go through form by form in detail to explain the depth and inner meaning. He will offer feedback, points of improvement and direction to develop your tai chi. You will be working towards the ultimate purpose of tai chi; to cultivate your qi most effectively and enjoyably.

He loves teaching and is the first person in history to have travelled over one million miles for the purpose of teaching tai chi.

His tai chi programs are supported by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and health departments and arthritis foundations around the world.

How Will I Benefit from the Workshops?

Over 500 medical studies have shown tai chi improves muscular strength, flexibility and fitness; as well as improved relaxation, balance, immunity and other health benefits. However studies don't show anywhere near the full extent of benefits tai chi can bring! Such as empowering you to develop inner peace, strength and power, leading to more happiness and fulfilment. 

Dr Lam incorporates his medical knowledge, tai chi experience and positive psychology to enhance the 73 Forms. At the completion of the workshop you will understand the sets more deeply, find a clearer path to progress in your tai chi and gain more enjoyment from your practice.
