Introduction to DaoYin exercises for wellbeing
Choose to learn the standing or seated/chair version of each exercise, then flow through together.
In the set of 12 DaoYin exercises, we can sense a holistic approach to wellbeing that involves the mind, along with harmonisation of movement and breath.
Dao Yin is an ancient term and the names of the exercises bring inspiration from the natural world and from traditional Chinese culture. DaoYin exercises can be used to maintain vitality, restore balance, quieten the mind, improve posture and strength and help keep diseases at bay.
