Oriental studio “WUDANG TAO“

The goal of the WUDANG TAO studio is to gather people, who want to find a healthy and happy life, share their physical and spiritual experience, create and develop together. The main direction of our studio is the upholding of martial arts, but besides that we also pay attention to the other meaningful activities. First of all, it is – meditation. Without it, martial arts, our consciousness and our practice would become limited and later disharmonious. We hope that  our further activities – yoga, pilates, practising mudras and mantras, calligraphy lessons, Chinese traditional medicine and tea ceremony – would take place. The architect Algimantas Kančas helps to create ascetic, modern and spacious place with the Zen feeling in it.
WUDANG TAO studio is open to everybody and now there are three groups: for students, for adults and for advanced practitioners.
After lessons it is always pleasant to relax, share your thoughts at the cup of tea, and rejoice at achievements. Sometimes we organise film screening or simply grab a book from the mini library in the studio.
At present our team is not so big but eventually we believe it will be. We are devoted to Wudang taichi and kungfu, and people who constantly attend lessons, radiate positive energy, are attentive to each other. We could say – we are becoming like one big family. So, in other words, we would like to invite YOU to our cosy studio, share your ideas and thoughts, express yourself, develop new skills, and meet new friends!
