About the Exercises

Tai Chi for Arthritis (TCA) is a specially designed programme by Dr Paul Lam (a family doctor and tai chi master) for people with arthritis. The special features of this unique programme are that it is easy to learn, enjoyable, and provides many health benefits in a relatively short period of time.

Medical studies have shown that practising this programme reduces pain significantly, prevents falls for those with balance issues, and improves many aspects of health. For these reasons, Arthritis Foundations around the world have supported the programme.

Using Zoom Meetings

Zoom is free to use - when you receive a meeting invitation by email, you can easily sign in for the session by clicking on the 'Join' link, up to 15 minutes before the lesson start time. You can join a meeting by using any browser, but we recommend you install the app when prompted, as it is more reliable. If you are joining directly from the app or browser, enter in the meeting number and password you were sent, and the email it was sent to. Once connected, you can join in with the class, see all your classmates, ask questions, chat with others as well as us, and many other great features which we can start to use as we get more used to using the new medium.

Tips for video meetings

  • If at all possible always use the meetings app on your computer or device - it’s much more reliable than a browser. 
  • Check your background - try to avoid having strong light behind you. 
  • If you want to be seen clearly (e.g. so we can correct you) use contrasting clothing to your background.
