Enhancing Tai Chi for Diabetes

The Enhancing Tai Chi for Diabetes workshop was developed by Dr Lam, incorporating his knowledge of Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It will revolutionize the way you teach Tai Chi for Diabetes!  This workshop is for advanced practitioners who are familiar with the form.

Dr Lam will take you beyond the boundaries of accepted knowledge about this set.  He will help you understand the corresponding Qi flow along the meridians relating to Diabetes, in order to cultivate the healing energy to help control or to prevent diabetes. He will also integrate Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern medical knowledge to give you a new perspective on the inner power of Tai Chi for Diabetes.

This is NOT an instructor certification training.

This workshop would be, with prior notice, an update for the Tai Chi for Diabetes or other Tai Chi for Health programs.  An assignment needs to be completed before the workshop and an administration fee applies.

Depth of Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention

This has been the most popular workshop conducted by Dr Lam worldwide over the last 15 years, now he has added the Fall Prevention module for even greater effectiveness!

During this exciting workshop Dr Lam will show you the ultimate purpose of tai chi and how to achieve that more effectively and enjoyably. He will show you how to incorporate tai chi principles to best improve your inner energy. He will explain what Qi (vital life energy) is, and teach you how to use the Yi (mind) to drive the Qi, and the Qi to drive the Jing (internal force).

You can expect significant improvement in your tai chi at the completion of this workshop. These techniques are applicable to all forms and styles of tai chi.

This workshop is a great opportunity to develop your tai chi and gain greater health benefits. There is infinite depth in the Tai Chi for Arthritis program - discover how much more power and enjoyment you can gain each time you explore and re-explore the depth.

This is NOT an instructor certification training.

This workshop can be, with prior notice and the completion of written assignments, an update for Tai Chi for Arthritis or other Tai Chi for Health programs. An assignment needs to be completed before the workshop and an administration fee applies.

Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention

Older people are more likely to fall which can cause serious injury.  Tai Chi for Arthritis has been shown by studies to prevent falls. Australian and New Zealand government departments have utilised this program to prevent the elderly from falling. After learning the Tai Chi for Arthritis program, participants can also learn Tai Chi for Osteoporosis with additional exercises for health and fall prevention.

The causes of falls in the elderly include muscle weakness, poor balance and vision, lack of confidence when moving about and the effects of medication. 

Many studies have shown Tai Chi as being one of the most effective approaches for preventing falls.

Book for both workshops and receive a $50 discount!

How Will I Benefit from the Workshop?

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.
