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.
Over the 9 week series, we will build each week on the practice from the previous weeks, combining breath, flow, stretch, and awareness. 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.
What to bring:
- Comfortable clothes for stretching
- Yoga mat (if you have one)
- Water bottle
