Event description
Breathing exercises and ancient techniques to help ease aches and pains, increase aerobic fitness and develop resilience & mental toughness

About this Event

This 6-Week course 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 not see - literally your 'hidden power'.

During the 6-weeks you will discover practical techniques that, while primarily focusing on your lungs and breathing apparatus, will also help you discover the holistic relationship through your whole body-mind-spirit that includes your movement, breath and qi (chi) energy.

Drop-in sessions are available if places are available.

Takeaways from the course:

By learning to do the breathing exercises correctly you can expect to experience progress in how you feel physically and energetically including how you feel about yourself and in relation to other people. The combination of increased suppleness and strength, detoxification and oxygenation, and the activation of your qi (chi) energy will help ease aches and pains, increase your aerobic fitness and increase your resilience and mental toughness. In other words you'll feel better, sleep better and this in turn helps improve your relationships with others. It has to start with your self. All from a few breathing exercises that just happen to be thousands of years old.

Language of Instruction: English

Duration of each session: 60 minutes

Technical platform for the course: Zoom
