Do-In Yoga has its origin in Japan and has roots in China where the Taoists, like Lao Tze, closely studied the nature to achieve a better understanding of the human body and the relationships between man, nature and cosmos. This results in the philosophy of the five elements and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Practicing Do-In Yoga supports the self-healing ability of your body and through regular practice you will also be able to manage your body and mind which is very helpful in discomforts and tensions.
Do-In Yoga promotes suppleness, endurance and strength. Like the blood vessels and the lymphatic system, meridians (energy lines) run through your body. They ensure that the Ki (life energy) is transported. Blockages in the Ki can cause all kinds of physical, mental and emotional discomforts or even illnesses. With meditation and gentle exercises from Indian yoga, Martial Arts, T'ai Chi and Zenshiatsu, the Ki will start flowing and ensure that discomfort and tension are alleviated. Through exercises that promote agility, including the meridian stretching, you build strength from within and support the natural way of moving from the Hara (abdominal force). Practice strengthens the body but also gives insight into our emotions and thoughts. Moving consciously and with attention to experience and build up the power from within.
