    What is it?
    Calling Spanish speakers!  Yes, for the first time, DBA teacher-in-training, Tatiana Beltran, will conduct classes in Spanish!  In this class, we will introduce students to Taiji Basics. The session will start with warm up exercises And then drill on basic Taiji movements such as "brush knee", "single whip", "playing the lute", "grasping the bird's tail" among others.  The introduction of these movements will familiarize you with the proper execution of these Taiji basics in coordination with deep breathing.  In no time, you will be able to move on to the short form of 28.  This is a great introductory class for those who do not have experience with Taiji. 

    De que se trata?

    ¿Qué son las clases de profesores en formación?

    DBA vuelve a ofrecer esta serie de clases impartidas por nuestros profesores en formación. Esta serie es parte del requisito de práctica para los estudiantes que buscan la certificación de maestros y planean enseñar Artes Marciales de Wudang al público. Esta iniciativa es un paso más en la promoción de la misión del Maestro Zhou de transmitir las artes de Wudang a las generaciones futuras al brindar a más personas acceso a los beneficios físicos, emocionales y espirituales que brindan estas artes curativas. Los cursos impartidos por profesores en formación ofrecen un camino importante para inspirar a más estudiantes a aprender, practicar y enseñar las artes marciales de Wudang.

    Why are these classes called "Classes by Donation"?

    When you take a class led by our teachers-in-training, you not only assist them in fulfilling the capstone of their many years of training, you also support Shifu Zhou's Daoist Benevolent Association, his non-profit organization. Master Zhou hopes to encourage his students and supporters to take classes for their wellbeing while simultaneously donating to his foundation.  Financial support is crucial to maintaining and sustaining this organization.

    ¿Por qué estas clases se llaman "Clases por donación"?
    Cuando tomas una clase dirigida por nuestros maestros en formación, no solo los ayudas a cumplir la piedra angular de sus muchos años de formación, sino que también apoyas a la Asociación Benevolente Daoísta de Shifu Zhou, su organización sin fines de lucro. El Maestro Zhou espera animar a sus estudiantes y seguidores a que tomen clases para su bienestar y, al mismo tiempo, donen a su fundación. El apoyo financiero es crucial para mantener y sostener esta organización.

    Daoist Meditation & Autumn Qigong for Health via Zoom

    What is it?

    Fall is a time of transition when the hot Yang energy of summer gives way to the cool Yin energy of winter. The days are shorter, the leaves fall from the trees, and we say goodbye to the long, beautiful days of summer. It is time to take the Yang energy of summer and store it away so that it is preserved on the inside. This Qiqong was designed to help the body smoothly move through the shift from Yang to Yin. Also good for Lung Energy and Boy's Wei Qi.

    In this course, Daoist Master Zhou Xuan Yun will be teaching the Daoist Meditation and Autumn Qigong and discussing their health nourishing properties, such as emptying your mind and letting your Qi flow and breathing methodology. The 4-Movement Autumn Qigong Set is suited for practice this coming season. The workshop will include standing and sitting positions, discussions of theories and methods of the Qigong Set.
