Fundamentals of Dao Yin Training
Throughout China’s vast medical history, the discipline of the posture, breath, and mind was regularly recommended and practice for strengthening deficient Jing (essence), Qi(energy), and Shen(spirit). This class will teach you Dao Yin disciplines derived from a long history of experience in preventive medicine dated as far back as Shang Dynasty (1600-1028 B.C.). The same principle of movement applies to the body’s Jing, Blood and Qi.
When Jing does not flow, Qi and Blood stagnate. The softly flowing movements of the Medical QiGong exercises enhance and increase the flow of the body’s Qi and blood.
This set of exercises is known as Dao Yin training and divided into Yang Movements (Dynamic action) and Yin Movements (Static Quiescence). Both Static and Dynamic Dao Yin GiGong movements supplement each other.
Dao Yin training includes three categories:
- Postural Dao Yin Training (supplements the production of essence) - movements
- Respiratory Dao Yin Training (transforms essence into energy) - breathing
- Mental Dao Yin Training (transform energy into spirit) - meditation
