Tai Yi Swimming Dragon Quan


Taiyi Swimming Dragon Quan is a gentle and flowing form of movement that combines Taichi, Qigong, and yogic stretching into one. This rare Taichi style, once a secret Yu family heirloom, circulates and cultivates Qi, as well as enhances balance, flexibility, and coordination. Join us this unique, first-time, online offering of this taichi form from the comfort of your home! Watch the form on YouTube.
