Lesson Descriptions

  • Tai Chi Basics
  • In this video, we will go over two great warm-ups that help you to connect with qi and are great as a moving meditation to open the meridians of the body!

 

  • Tai Chi Ball Flow
  • Tai Chi Ball Flow is a traditional Tai Chi warm up. Traditionally this flow was done with an actual jade or wooden ball, but can be done with just the hands. Focus between the hands, not so much the hands themselves! The Tai chi ball is used to cultivate qi in the hands to make a stronger qi or light body! It gives a sense of peacefulness in the mind!

 

  • Traditional Warm-ups for Yin Yoga
  • These warm-ups temper the meridians, joints and tendons. This is great as a practice in itself!

 

  • Golden Egg
  • The Golden Egg is a Taoist yoga flow based on the movements of Chinese qigong and Indian Vinyasa yoga (flow yoga). This flow targets the lung, heart and bladder meridians and is used to flow qi and break up blockages in the energetic body!

 

  • Journey To The West
  • Journey to the West is a Taoist yoga flow, more of a yang energy, borrowing from Indian flow yoga. It’s used to strengthen the legs and open the stomach and gallbladder meridian, as well as the bladder meridian. This flow will strengthen the muladhara chakra! Great for a morning or mid-day practice!

 

  • Taoist Sun Salutation or Shinto Shrine
  • This was created as a morning flow that stretches the bladder meridians, opens up the shoulders and the middle tan tien. This flow is great to do if you only have 5-10 for warm ups, or are in a limited space!
  • Monkey King

And, you know, guys become very, very popular in the West, and this is some of the sequences were flows that are actually kind of missing out of yoga in yoga, people believe is, is very static. And that's really far from the truth. And these flows I'm gonna show you. Um, you could think they're kind of like the warm ups for yin yoga, and you didn't mean static or still. And, um, we're gonna play with more of a kind of a more playful flow which will eventually lead into yin yoga, which I mean by that is flow and static.

Two will adore chakra and with shell in stretch we work from the feet up. So we're following horse of energy, actually from the bottom Chalker up to the top says that we kind of worked feet up. I learned a lot of this in Thailand. Learned a lot of this from different Japanese practitioners. A lot of this from Chinese practitioners, even some partition Indian healers. I just do this a few times from here like a lot of what the hands, the inside of the lace coming, walking like a cat too hard. Work up to the knees, Circle the knees so kind of circle this way back your times little lighter when the thighs in it I don't walk too far up.

I'm here today with Hang me, the instructor of this course, and we're going to learn a little bit about him as well as the practice of Dallas yoga. Hi. All right, So my first question is, what is Taoist yoga for? Some of us who might not have ever heard of that you may have heard of Dow ism may have heard of yoga, but never, never really. Bill been delved into what that really means. Sure, Taoist yoga. It's a Chinese form of yoga that it's always always been around. They work with the elements. Five Chinese elements with CNN. Yawn and it. It's a very fine line between Xi Gong and Dow. Issue over, sometimes very hard to see. But the more modern Taoist yoga you'll see, it's a little flows, and they may resemble postures or movements. Find an Indian yoga and in fact, sometimes we'll even borrow postures from Indian yoga. Which official Dow issue ago? One of animal movements. A lot of nature movements like water, metal wire. Um what? So we worked with the elements as well, so it could be so what? Demonic, actually. So the first Dallas were shamans, first Taoist amount, SAGES, men, women. So that answers the question. Cool. Yeah, I know it's a kind of a long history, but you guys working with movements flows. Sometimes it's static. Pounds is flowing. So what got you involved? Well, it was almost by my accident. I got an email about Holy Zinc and he's he's the kung fu master or the Taoist yoga master, that kind of broad popular in the West. And you don't know, Paul. You think you should look look out for him because he's kind introduced this practice in into the yoga world into the West. Um, I e randomly found, Ah, workshop. He was giving, and I went there and they knew about him from when I was a kid. I was really popular back in the seventies with martial arts come food and I was like, Oh my God, it's nice. 40 minutes from my house. So when I went there, he was giving a lecture and seminar when Taoist yoga and it blew me away. And no, at that time I was being introduced to Shiatsu, a Japanese for a massage and terminology. He was using the five elements in unity. Almost Griffin. Later with this and I saw similarity tight she and calm food and yoga, and I really just don't work. There's about 10 years ago. Well, it's great to see that your path has continued and grown in your practice to the point that you can share this with the world. Because just in learning as filming and as well as a little bit before, it's helped me a lot. Teoh get in touch and get in touch with with different flow movements that are different from you. So that brings me to my nuts. Question. You said there's some movements that are similar to Indian you. So what? What are the sort of similarities and differences just in brief as to a practice that might be a little bit more popular today, like the Indian version of you or even meditation? Yeah, the differences are in Indian, which I also teaching yoga in a lot of Indian yoga. They will hold the postures, and it can be a bit without being negative. It's not a negative. It could be a bit rigid. Everything is kind of very linear. We're down. Wished yoga. Um it could be very circular. It could be moving spirals. In fact, sometimes you don't use your over mass. A lot of times people practice in nature. Um so we don't were not limited to a yoga mat. It's a very free flow form or practice. Yes, you need a teacher, a mentor. But practice will start to teach you, and you start to connect with nature is sure to connect with the animals. And, um, that's the difference is not that Indian Europa doesn't have this guys, but it's very quick to see Ian Dowie show. It's very circular. Very flow is also dance. That's the bigger biggest differences. How should we do whole postures? Um, but there's also very much a flow, and it's based on wonder Down circular room spiral meditations. Indian Yogi will use a lot of Montrose and the Dow. It's yoga. One of movements, circular movements with body Um, you also focus on different focus points that don t ends as well. Indian yoga meditation could be quite similar, but also they could be different. It is a dour showbiz based on, I would like to say, loosely based on Chinese medicine, so we were with the meridians. I don t ends. The elements were Indian yoga. They're working with chalk Rose Indian elements an ira vida. So the differences, others differences. Cool. Thank you. Okay, So my next question is for the people who might be practicing something else and be saying you know, why should I practice Dallas yoga as well as the people who might be New Tioga, new to the flowing energy in general. So my question is, why should you practice it? Focusing on what are the benefits that one receives when practicing? What I noticed right away with Taoist yoga was after practicing Karate Day, a lot of weight martial arts and also Indian style of yoga. I noticed they were very kind of in stiff. And I know some people will disagree with this, but I found them kind of very hard, very stiff, which is in a positive or a negative. Well, I found that with the Dow issue over was I could relax more in my body, seemed to open up more, relax. And, um, that was the biggest difference. Like I could start to flow and like it was very stiff in the beginning. the Dow wish Go. It's very hard for me to kind of let go, and this is the positive dollar. Sugars let go to flow, which people have a hard time doing letting go on, just flowing teaches. You don't flow with life, just a flow. Oh, and that's That's the big difference in my soul that Dallas y practices, um, you build your immune system flowing more, releasing tension in the chalk press release intention in the meridians it actually, it's a whole system of yoga. It's You'll find everything in Dallas. Jovial young yoga, yoga, meditation, XI Gong movements. You'll find martial arts, sword movements point everything assistant. Actually very cool man, that's at least me like if I wasn't introduced to it before, that would make me pretty excited because I really found the holistic sensitive, you know, and I see that I see exactly what you mean with we didn t yoga sometimes and Indian yoga. Sometimes I think new practitioners get stuck in. Can I do this posture? Can I not do this washer? And it's almost like a comparative thing. Whereas that was sugars Mawr. It's easy to just get in and hello and then. So it's a less of, ah, a learning curve in order to actually feel the energy. So that's one of the benefits that I've seen. Well, so I've also seen to every movement of Taoist gov works in certain Meridian. And when you start to, like, study a little bit, you can incorporate which movement affects which meridian which effects which Oregon or emotion restored to put the pieces together. Okay, this four event or this movement, it works with the heart. Meridian heart really maybe goes anxiety. I want to put the pieces together. And this is how I found a very holistic Well, I knew which movement we're going to stimulate with meridians report, choppers don t ends. Like I could take the practice for myself. Use it as a medicine. Yeah. Yeah, no doubt you You also get an Indian. You, But I'm not disrespecting Indian over. Yeah, yeah, Very cool. All right, so I have one last question, and this is for students that have taken this course and that are very interested in and what you continue. So the question is where What do you recommend students also look for that? May be it may be shortly Dallas yoga or maybe something that just help them with their Dallas years. I think that's a good question. Taoist yoga today has has kind of spread all over the world, and there's a few teachers that are very old school, which I have a lot of respect for. Wish I would recommend some of their books or DVDs. One is who I was learning from his Paulie's Inc He has a lot of DVDs, I believe is a book, Um, but definitely DVDs. And I should be all these things. He's the one who created. Why was that? He created? But he's the one who made Dallas joke very popular. Oh, she's gone. You kind of enhances also studying like she ought to or oppressor or learning about that morning about, like, Meridians and Don t. And one has to practice. Oh, I'm also very influenced by Main Paul. Really? Waas. He became very popular for popularizing yin yoga. He's a very good books. Um, Duncan Long is another one that I really respect. Um, so there's some teachers out there who I really, really like that you could check out, um, come through as well just practicing come food tight. She these kind of things learning body, Asian bodywork. As I said, you know what kind of enhances the practice? And even when Yasser yoga, you know, you know, when you also flow yoga has a lot of good good flows in you could take and incorporate into the Dow show of practice. Well, thank you very much. Hang me. I do. It's been a pleasure co creating this course of you. I hope all of you watching at home if you have already taken the course. I hope that this kind of re integrates it gets you in the right direction to continue your practice. If you're considering taking the course, I hope this answers some of your question ensures you all the benefits that you're going to get from this. Thank you.
