Daoyin or ‘guiding and pulling (the Qi)’ is a Daoist system that cultivates and circulates the Qi. This set of simple yet elegant movements, integrated with the breath, softly open and close the joints, stretching and strengthening the muscles, tendons and sinews. With perseverance, body and mind harmonize, preparing us for
sitting meditation by opening the internal gates.
There are many different sets of movements that can be done lying down, seated on the floor or chair, or standing up.
