The spirit of Madison Daoguan is cooperative, rather
than competitive in nature. We encourage students to
go at their own pace in connection with the needs of
their own bodies. The Daoguan is a place to slow down,
relax, and not be rushed. Peace of mind and wellness
is present in all aspects of teaching. Classes are offered
for those new to taijiquan (t’ai chi), as well as seasoned
practitioners. We invite you to study with us.
