What is Daoyin?

Daoyin (Qigong) - Daoyin means to guide and pull. Daoyin originates from ancient China. Daoyin sequences move with a elegant and balanced flow of the whole body in tune with our natural breath pattern. Rather than stretching we move within a comfortable range of movement to avoid putting unnecessary strain on any particular joint or muscle group.

With regular practise we build strength and suppleness while calming the mind. Coordinating the mindful movements with a natural breathing cycle creates a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

Daoyin goes back a long way. Archaeological evidence excavated from the Mawangdui Tomb 3 (sealed in 168BC) in the former kingdom of Changsha, shows a 'Guiding and Pulling Chart' with ladies and gentlemen enjoying various Daoyin exercises. You'll find the original chart housed in the Hunan Provincial Museum, Changsha, China. You can find a copy of the original at the Wellcome Trust, London.
