TAIJI DAOYIN QIGONG
Chinese traditional energy & self-healing exercises

First of all, we would like to clarify that the Taiji that we are practicing is not same Taiji Chuan lesson. We refer back to source of Taiji, two contrast energies Yin and Yang that coexistence and constantly in the process of stimulating and balancing for a mean of harmony. In Yin there is Yang and vice versa Yin in Yang, it influences everything in our world, our daily life and the universe.

 

Qigong (ch'i kung), is a general description for different traditional meditative and energy exercises based on the principles of traditional Chinese Medicine and there are more than 3000 different forms.
Daoyin ,has been practiced by Chinese more than thousands of year, nobody really know how long. But we do know Taoists practice Daoyin to improve health condition with the hope for longevity, i.e. Wu Chun Si (documentation can be found in the Later Han Dynasty in 4th century), Ba Duan Jing (Song Dynasty in 10th century), etc. In Taoism,

Daoyin Qigong ,is also known as "Medical Qigong" . The archaeological discovery in Ma-Wang-Duei/Hunan in 1972 confirmed more than 2000 years ago Chinese dancers already have learnt to improve and maintain their flexibility and suppleness through Daoyin exercises. In the 14th Century, Chen Style Taiji Chuan was first formed, then followed by Yang Style in the 18th/early 19th century, and then Sun, Wu, Wou Styles. Different styles of Taiji Chuan share the same principle that they blend the self-defense techniques in Wushu with Qi flow through meridian concepts into a form base exercise.

, "Nourishing Qi (energy) Enabling Suppleness" written in Dao Te Jing by Lao Tze is a perfect motto that we practice in Taiji Daoyin Qigong, in which we learn to listen the rhythm of our body. Taiji Daoyin Qigong is not a form based but a thorough relaxation exercise focuses on the improvement of energy flow and physical functions for better health in body, energy and mind.

Dao, means "Leading" and Yin, as "Guiding", through gentle stretching, correct movements, self-massage and breathing techniques, everyone can benefit:

-- Relief stress from body and mind
-- Enhance suppleness and flexibility
-- Stimulate self-healing by releasing energy blocks
-- Strengthen inner peace and harmony
