DaoYin exercises are designed to promote health and longevity. In these lovely sets of Chinese exercises, we can see a holistic approach to wellbeing that involves the mind, along with harmonisation of movement and breath.
DaoYin is an ancient term and the names of the exercises bring inspiration from the natural world and from traditional Chinese culture. Its purpose is to strengthen the mind and body, maintain vitality, restore balance and keep diseases at bay. DaoYin exercises are relevant to recuperation and may also be used alongside treatment during illness (with the consent of your doctor/medical professional).
More detailed consideration of your breathing and other aspects can be a natural progression. There is a seated and a standing version of the exercises.
