Tao Yin is a type of exercise and self-massage intended to revitalize a person’s internal energy, which is also referred to as ch’i. The exercises are used to encourage flexibility and strength, rejuvenating a person’s muscles, ligaments, and joints and help release blocked energy within a person’s body.

“Tao yin (sometimes referred to as Taoist yoga) is a series of exercises (mainly in lying and sitting positions, but also in standing position) practiced by Taoists to cultivate chi, the internal energy of the body according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. The practice of Tao Yin was a precursor of qigong, And was practiced in Chinese Taoist monasteries for health and spiritual cultivation. Tao Yin, is also said to be a primary formative ingredient in the well-known “soft style” Chinese martial art, T’ai Chi Ch’uan.
The main goal of Tao yin is to create balance between internal and external energies and to revitalize the body, mind and spirit, developing strength and flexibility in muscles and tendons.”
