22 Jul Workshop with Dr Paul Lam!
“Think of the circular path of each movement. In tai chi every movement is in a curve or circle that has no ending or beginning” ~ Dr Paul Lam
Exciting news! Dr Paul Lam, creator of the ‘Tai Chi for Health’ forms that I have been teaching for the past 8 years, will be giving a talk at the Karuna on the 6th of August! Not only is Paul a master trainer, tai chi expert, and mentor; he is a kind soul who really wants to help others through the power, healing, and magic of Tai Chi. It is a real treat for us to have the opportunity to soak up his wisdom in such an intimate setting. Paul is a busy man, so I am deeply grateful that he will be giving a talk on ‘The Magic of Tai Chi’ next month for my students. Details of the workshop are below!

Without the Tai Chi for Arthritis form I would not be a Tai Chi student, or teacher. That’s for sure. I heard about Tai Chi and its benefits for people with arthritis when I was 19 years old having just experienced a major flare up of the arthritis in my knees. Well… I have been practising ever since. Thank you, Paul. Thank you, everyone! Hope to see you at the workshop!
