Event description
'Daoyin' Ancient Chinese Taoist Breathing Exercises and Techniques for Whole Body Health & Wellness with Dr. Alex Boyd

About this Event

This weekly breath workshop introduces you to Chinese Taoist (Daoist) breathing practices that can be done from a standing or sitting posture. 'Breath is Life' and during these challenging times when our respiration is either under threat or in recovery from the virus, very much needed. Daoyin strengthens the whole respiratory system including the muscles that are internal and you do see - literally your 'hidden power'.

Dr Alex Boyd has a passion for developing collaboration between embodied knowledge practitioners. He is the co-founder and conceiver of the Embodied Research Working Group at the IFTR and is Executive Director for ‘Intercultural Roots’. Alex is a practitioner-scholar who graduated in Performance Studies and Critical Education from the University of California at Davis (UC Davis). His PhD dissertation entitled ‘The Sustainability of Traditional Knowledge Systems’ draws on 20 years of professional work teaching the wide-ranging Taoist arts that he has immersed himself in since 1985. These include energy cultivation and expression, healing, martial and sacred arts that (re)connect humans with nature, the earth and the heavens! Alex is a Research Associate with UC Davis researching how actors and performers can cultivate and utilise chi (qi) in 'presencing' and how ideas manifest into happenings. He also works as a coach and mentor working with performers, athletes and CEO's internationally implementing his 'Personal & Professional Practice' embodiment toolkit.
