Tao Yin First Posture
Tao Yin First Posture

UHT Tao Yin is a Chi Kung self-care practice set of postures, gentle movement, mindfulness and proper breath that releases the psoas and diaphragm. Easily integrated into ones daily practice it provides stress management, structural alignment, and support to the core and postural muscles.  It also relieves musculoskeletal issues caused by poor body mechanics while working. By relieving facial restrictions, therapists and individuals will increase their flexibility and improve posture.

‘Tao Yin is a form of energy-enlivening exercise originating out of Taoism, China’s oldest philosophical system. An integral part of the Universal Tao practice, Tao Yin is a series of revitalizing exercises that develop flexibility, strength, resiliency, and suppleness. Through their integrative principles these exercises create harmony within the body, mind, and spirit, leading one to discover balance within nature and a way to more freely within the ebb and flow of life’s ceaseless current’–Mantak Chia ‘Energy Balance through the Tao, Exercises for cultivating Yin Energy’ ISBN#13 978 159477059-3.

Tok Sen for tendons
Tok Sen for tendons

Tok Sen is the Chi Nei Tsang modality that utilizes tamarind hammer and chisel to vibrate the tendons and organs of the body to release trauma.  It  is a unique healing art founded only in Northern Thailand (Lanna) that clears blocked energy. To accomplish this it uses mechanical and sound vibration,
working deeply through the fascia and muscles. Tok Sen is thought to date back over 3,000 years and is still practiced in Thai villages after
having worked all the day long in the fields. The tradition is completely oral, and it has been passed down through the farming families. Universal Healing Tao has incorporated this modality as well as Guasa into its Chi Nei Tsang Level 3 course and it rounds out the Chi Nei Tsang system beautifully.

As a UHT Chi Nei Tsang Senior Teacher Mary Ellen will certify participants via NCBTMB and the UHT System.

CNT Level 2 Chasing the Winds
Chasing the Winds

 

Once level 1 is completed the natural progression of the work spurs one on and ‘chasing the winds’ becomes even more important. Level one prepares the ground, Level two is where the real magic and growth occurs.  

Stagnant chi presents in predictable patterns of dysfunction. In Level 2 we address the patterns with specific protocols that encourage the body to release chi and fascial tensions in the musculo-skeletal and organ systems.

As a Universal Healing Tao Chi Nei Tsang Senior Teacher Mary Ellen will provide NCBTMB and UHT certification for participation in the class.
