Dr. Paul Lam Workshops

Every year, Dr. Paul Lam travels the globe teaching his “Depth of Tai Chi for Arthritis” and his Tai Chi for Health Classes.  In October 2012 we were fortunate to have him teach two of his workshops in Bradenton, Florida.
The two day “Depth of Tai Chi for Arthritis” is a must for any student of tai chi.  Focussing on the essential principles and how they are present in and shape tai chi, regardless of tai chi style, this class was an opportunity for participants to go into the movements in a form that they are familiar with and to take their practice to a new level.  I have taken this class at least 4 times and each time it is different and leaves me with a deeper understanding of the spiral energy of tai chi and how to cultivate it.
The second two day workshop, “Tai Chi for Energy” was a teacher’s certification class in which participants review the movements of this new health form which blends movements from Sun style, the youngest of the tai chi styles and Chen style, the oldest style.  Though they may differ in the ways in which they cultivate the spiral energy,  Dr. Lam weaves these movements and styles together allowing for a real feeling of how they complement each other.  It is also an opportunity for students to safely explore some of what makes the two styles so distinctive.
At the end of these four days I was exhausted, excited and exhilarated.  If you are fortunate enough to be able to study with Dr. Lam, I would encourage you to do so.
