About Dr Paul Lam

Dr Lam, an Australian family physician and tai chi expert, is a world leader in the field of tai chi for health. He loves teaching and is the first person in history to have travelled over one million miles for the purpose of teaching tai chi. Many enjoy learning from him so much so that they travel thousands of miles year after year to attend his workshops.

Dr Lam is the author of several books on tai chi and best-selling instructional tai chi DVDs. His tai chi programs are supported by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and health departments and arthritis foundations around the world. Millions of people have improved their health and wellness by learning his programs.

From Dr Lam

Continuing to develop your tai chi will bring more enjoyment and greater health benefits. The most important task is to practice regularly - that will enable you to truly feel and understand the inner meaning of tai chi. Here are some hints:

Be fully engaged - when a person is fully engaged in an activity then he or she becomes "lost in time". It often happens when an athlete performs at his or her best, or when an artist paints a masterpiece. 

Feeling good naturally - the human body resonates with nature and tai chi follows the rhythms of nature, so you will feel peaceful and relaxed. 

Learning new skills - whether you're learning a new set of forms or improving your forms, your mind will benefit from the stimulation. Enjoy the excitement!

Getting the habit  - set a regular time daily for practice so it becomes a habit. Your mind and body will thank you.

Using mind power - tai chi is an internal art, allow your mind to be open. A closed mind is like a full cup, an empty mind is ready to take in or absorb new knowledge

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 24 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.
