Tai Chi for Arthritis - YouTube

Tai Chi for Arthritis - Parts 1 & 2 - 41 Sequences with audio commentary of each sequence to guide you in your enjoyment and practice.

The Tai Chi for Arthritis or TCA program, is part of the Tai Chi for Health Institute's series of programmes for health and wellbeing, founded by Dr Paul Lam.

Based upon the Sun 73 Tai Chi Form, TCA presents a simplified form for people to enjoy and master. It has many of the repetitions and some of the more challenging competition sequences modified or removed to allow a wide range of people to learn and master this lovely form of Tai Chi.

Dr Paul Lam and the team at the Tai Chi for Health Institute developed Tai Chi for Arthritis to promote health and wellbeing, especially for people living with a long term health condition. It went on to become a successful program for falls prevention with older adults.

That doesn't mean you can't enjoy this Tai Chi program for its own sake. It still maintains the unique characteristics of the original style developed by Sun Lu-Tang in the early 20th century.

You can learn this program as well as others in one of our Tai Chi for Health classes and workshops. If you'd like to learn a Tai Chi (Taijiquan) form such as the Yang 24 or Sun 73 or Chen Tai Chi , then we teach these also.

We run Tai Chi for Health Classes covering: Baildon, Bingley, Bradford, Carleton, Glusburn, Keighley, Saltaire, Shipley and Skipton.
