 Youtube is a great resource, but there are also plenty of poor or inappropriate examples of Tai Chi on there (you don't have to be an expert to post a clip online), so check the feedback before trusting any videos. 

Training with an Instructor is the best way to ensure you are performing the moves safely for you, especially if you have an existing health condition; but here are a few useful videos in the meantime.
