Taoist Yoga is a traditional Mind Body practice from China that traces its history back to 500 BC and beyond, into ancient antiquity.
The focus of Taoist Yoga is on Self Healing, Harmony with Nature and developing Inner Peace.
In ancient times, this Healing Art was termed ‘Yang Sheng’ or the ‘Art of Nourishing Life’.
Taoist Yoga is an ancient precursor of Qi Gong, specifically the variety sometimes known as Nei Gong, the Art of Tai Chi, and was practiced in Sacred Mountains and Taoist Monasteries for health, healing and spiritual cultivation in ancient times.
At the heart of Taoist Yoga is the essence of 'Qi' or 'Life Force Energy'.
Taoist Yoga cultivates and awakens this 'Qi' or Life Force Energy within the practitioner; 'Qi' can be thought of as the underlying essence of all life, the vitality within nature, and the very fabric of the universe.
We may also think of Qi as the Unified Energy Field that empowers, permeates and supports all life, nature and the universe.
When we are able to have abundant Qi we experience health; when our Qi is deficient, we experience sickness and disease.
Qi can also be viewed as the bridge to obtaining mind / body harmony and spiritual awakening.
Our style of practice we call the TaoYoga Arts™ System, which was organized and founded by Jesse Lee Parker after more than 25 years of research and practice of Taoist Yoga, Nei Gong, Qigong and the Internal Martial Arts.
TaoYoga Practice opens us to this Universal Healing Energy and causes it to circulate in a smooth, flowing manner through the network of energy channels within the body system -- thus giving one vital health, relaxation, inner peace and self healing.
The practice of TaoYoga is a Holistic Life Science which stresses self healing, inner harmony and balance. It uses dynamic stretches, static postures, breath training, meditation, visualization, positive thinking and dietary therapy in its practice.
TaoYoga is truly ancient wisdom that we may use to enhance our life experience in these stressful modern times.
TaoYoga gives one a youthful long life, radiant beauty, a soft and flexible body, positive outlook, resistance to disease, the ability of self healing, and the uncovering of one's True Nature.
At a higher level, TaoYoga helps each of us to discover our True Self and uncover our True Spiritual Nature.
