Our main objective has been to create a safe, open minded, respectful, peaceful, and conscious attitude and atmosphere in which to study these health promoting art-forms. The high quality of education and professional care that we provide at the school, supports each of our student's personal goals.
The year-round ongoing classes, both morning and evening, in Tai Chi, Qigong, and Meditation, as well as private sessions and workshops (for couples, teens, and off-site groups) allow students from out of town and locally to learn. We also provide instructional videos, books, and other learning materials to enhance the experience and provide at home continued practice.
At the Peaceful Dragon School, we teach the Yang Style - Short Form (both Professor Cheng man-Ching and Grandmaster William CC Chen) and the Wild Goose Chi Kung Form.
Tai Chi track includes: 8 Methods, Push Hands, Application, Sword, Staff, and Dao.
Qigong track includes: Buddhist and Taoist Meditation styles, Medical Qigong, Nourishing and Cleansing techniques, and Self-Acupressure.
Benefits: Reduced stress, relaxation, improved balance, mindfulness, healthier body/mind and a sense of well-being.

Watch Ch'en Wei-ming in MotionThe most moving photos of the Yang Style Solo Form I have seen has been of Ch'en Wei-ming. These photos are almost alive with and "original spirit" of the lineage. I have been told that Ch'en Wei-ming, a student of Yang Ch'eng-fu, in his concern to maintain the integrity of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, was called the "Keeper of the Gate." I have also heard that when Professor Cheng man-Ching (my teacher - Grandmaster Chen's teacher) modified the Yang Style Long form, he demonstrated his modifications to Ch'en Wei-ming for approval. These photos have been arranged in sequence, fading one into the other to create as much of an image of movement as possible. I hope you enjoy watching. Wasentha Young
