    Beautifully put together lessons I came across this book in my doctors office while in for a fibromyalgia follow up. I was captivated by it, absolutely captivated. The quality of the pages in this book is awesome. The lesson illustrations are gorgeous and comprehensible (see the image I uploaded for an example page). My doctor is a 1-year student, and we talked about how it might help me with my fibro issues. Coincidentally (?) the New York Times had just published an article on August 18th, 2010 about how tai chi has been found to help fibro patients. An excerpt is here:”A clinical trial at Tufts Medical Center found that after 12 weeks of tai chi, patients with fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition, did significantly better in measurements of pain, fatigue, physical functioning, sleeplessness and depression than a comparable group given stretching exercises and wellness education. Tai chi patients were also more likely to sustain improvement three months later.”([...])I really hate the need I have to take powerful meds and narcotics to control my symptoms, and I’m hoping Tai Chi can replace some, if not all, of them. So I bought the book, signed up for a 10 week beginner class with my doctors instructor, and I can’t wait to get started. I’ll definitely be using this book in my practice sessions at home to gain proficiency with the moves.A word of warning – this book is definitely for the first timers and relative newbies. I wouldn’t recommend it for intermediate or advanced students. Unless you just want to have it in your collection or in your office for others to see.

    A great book on the 24 forms of Tai Chi This book is very helpful for learning the 24 forms of Tai Chi. It is full of detailed photos and descriptions that make each form easy to learn. Lam is considered one of the masters of Tai Chi. I find this form of Tai Chi to be graceful and healing. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Tai Chi.
