  • EasyTaichi - This is the video I most recommend to beginners, seniors and people with health issues. The most important factors for novices learning from a video are that (a) the video be user friendly, and (b) that the form it teaches be both easy and convenient to practice in a small space. The Easy Tai Chi video was designed with these two criteria specifically in mind. Once you have mastered the EasyTaiChi video I recommend that you graduate to Dr. Lam's videos.
