About Daoyin Health Society
What is known as Qigong was actually named after the ancient term “Daoyin” which means leading the Qi or Energy flow in the body and stretching body parts to gain flexibility.
Taiji Daoyin is a mind body practice, characterized by the integration of meditation and stretching in motion to effectively unblock the “Qi” flow and improve overall physical function beyond strengthening or relaxing muscles and tendons. All of the movements in Taiji Daoyin use centrifugal force and follow a circle or curve orbit.
Taiji Daoyin practice includes six parts: Daoyin "Qi" Practice, Body Spiral Percussion, Daoyin Bar, Stretching in Motion, Daoyin Dancing, and Daoyin on Cushion.
The creation of Taiji Daoyin derives from the integration of Taiji, martial arts and medical science with the explicit purpose of overall health enhancement. All of the inner organs are physically connected and controlled by the autonomic nerves distributed from different levels of the spinal cord – one of the most important meridians in Chinese medicine. Taiji Daoyin particularly focuses on stretching and flexing the muscles related to the spine, and therefore benefits corresponding internal organs. The foundation of the motions is the abdominal breath, specifically diaphragm breathing, accompanied by inner vision guided body movement. Taiji Daoyin is not only for physical health, but also for calmness, concentration, self-control, integrity, perseverance and confidence.
