Discover the ancient healing art of Tao Yin
Monday 10.30am – 11.45am, Abberley Park Hall, Christchurch
Tao Yin combines the powerful asana practice of yoga with the effortless flow of Qigong.
Tao Yin is over 6,000 years old and is the most original form of Qigong. It is the foundation from which all others emerged. Tao Yin is also a shared ancestor of yoga. Tao Yin was very formative in the evolution of yoga and helped to integrate Chinese and Indian wisdom into a powerful movement practice.
Tao Yin was practiced to cultivate the internal life force energy. Translated into English, Tao Yin means “to guide and direct the vital principle, Qi, through mind and body.”
Tao Yin was discovered when Taoist sages found paintings on cave walls and inscriptions on tortoise shells. The practice revealed natural movements that help to heal the body. Many of the practices mirror the movements of animals and of nature, reflecting a deep respect and reverence for the natural world.
This class is a combination of floor work and standing. Tao Yin is a more physical practice than our other Qigong classes, with more emphasis on building core strength, leg strength, balance and flexibility. We finish class with a relaxing guided meditation.
