We are Live-Streaming until further notice.
Spring/Summer semester ends July 25. Fall Semester begins September 14 (see schedule below).
Note from the Director
Based on the current uncertainty it is challenging to make plans. What I can say is if nothing changes in how we are able to safely conduct our day-to-day, we will continue to have classes through ZOOM and in-person socially distanced practice sessions (weather permissible).
Good news is that this opens up an opportunity for those who do not live in Ann Arbor to attend classes virtually!
In the event that and restrictions are lifted, we begin to feel less vulnerable about having classes in-person, masks will be required and the classes will continued to be ZOOM’ed for those of you attending virtually. As been the practice, the filters in our furnace are Heppa equivalent and surfaces, like knobs, light switches in the studio and bathrooms will be disinfected before and after each class.
Be safe and continue to practice distancing and good hygiene!
These live-streaming sessions through ZOOM. If are interested in studying at the Peaceful Dragon School and would like to see one of the classes e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org

Beginner Tai Chi – Learning the Form
(TC 1 – first/third; TC 2 – second/third; and TC 3 – third/third)
The T’ai Chi form is a series of postures linked together in a continuous, fluid manner. As an internal Chinese martial art, the form focuses on self-cultivation, integrates both physical and mental energy mechanics, promotes relaxation, and builds a sense of presence and awareness. T’ai Chi is often characterized as a moving meditation. Register for one class and you can attend all 4 sessions per week – whatever your schedule allows – at no extra cost! (Level 1 – just beginning students as well as Level 2 and 3 are all in the same class.) Tuition: $195
- Mon. 10-11:15 AM (Master Young)
- Thurs. 6:00-7:15 PM (Master Young)
Self-Care Energy Work (Chi Kung/Qigong)
Feeling like you could use some self-care techniques that will help to give you an energy cleanse and revitalize your sense of well-being? During these sessions you can learn basic stretches, breathing and visualization meditations, and self-acupressure (acu-points used in acupuncture) for just this purpose! These techniques are called Qigong meaning Energy Work. Best of all these exercises can be easily added to your self-care tool box and used daily. Classes taught by Master Wasentha Young. Register for one class and you can attend all 3 sessions per week – whatever your schedule allows – at no extra cost! Tuition: $195
