Dao Yin Health Qigong Workshop – Sitting Forms
September 20 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Dao Yin is a set of Qigong exercises adapted from over 50 ancient forms. It consists of twelve movements designed by the Chinese Health Qigong Association. The movements are easy to learn, suitable for all ages and can be practised in both standing and sitting positions.
This simple and accessible regime that may be varied in intensity to suit the individual, is perfect for anyone (whether experienced qigong practitioners or complete beginners) wishing to learn the potent traditional forms that have practised by the Chinese for thousands of years.
It is aimed to strengthen the functioning of the energy (Qi) and blood (Xue) to flow freely from the head to the toes to nourish the internal organs and boost our immune system to promote health and well-being. Each exercise is performed a set number of times and co-ordinated with deep breathing to make it the most effective. The movements can be practised separately or in a set sequence; they also can be used alongside other practices like Tai Chi.
Learning the sitting set of Shi Er Fa will equip teachers with effective exercises to teach both individually and in groups, including children, people with disabilities and older people.
