We, of the Te School, are a group who studied Qigong and Tai Chi under the teachings of Daniel Villasenor. Daniel, a Westerner, was trained in Qigong in the Sun Monestary in Beijing, China. He left Portland for other pursuits in June of 2006 and has since opened the MogaDao Institution in Santa Fe, NM, as Zhenzan Dao. We have carried on since, employing and contninuing to explore these teachings from a Daoist perspective.
Typically, each class begins with warming up and gently stretching to open up the body. From there, various forms are practiced, based upon the selection of the leader/teacher. We all begin as newcomers so in all classes we whole-heartedly welcome them!! Feel free to drop in any time. The class sometimes closes with a few minutes of Tai Chi. Please enter the studio via the ramp to the side deck, just north of the front door. No need to knock, (unless it's accidentally closed) just please enter quietly.
