Experience the art of Tao Yin Yoga. Cultivated from an integration of Indian yoga and the healing practices and spiritual philosophies of ancient China, Tao-Yin yoga is based on Taoist principal of living in harmony with nature( accepting one’s body where it is at). Integrating simple and gentle chi-gong movements performed at the beginning and end of class increases vitality and restores harmony to the bones and joints. Guided visualizations enable the participant to move into a meditative state for deepening ones practice and transcending perceived limitations. Unique postures promote stillness, clear energetic blockage’s, enhance circulation, develop deep core strength, muscle tone, balance and stamina.
