Dao Yin (Saturday) & Static Postures (SUNDAY)
NEWCASTLE, July 11th & 12th

 2 half day workshops presented on training from the Da Xuan Daoist tradition. On Saturday we will study Dao Yin, and on Sunday we will look at the practice of static postures, also known as zhan zhuang or standing meditation.

Dao Yin appears on the outside to look very much like pilates or yoga. The practice is done primarily lying on your back and learning to extend, roll and rotate using the power of the lower center and the strength of the back while learning to progressively reduce tension in the extremities.

Static posture training asks us to hold different postures for long periods of time in stillness.  By remaining still, we will learn how to feel and then control the internal sensations of circulation, accumulating enormous amounts of energy.
