Thursdays, 8:00-9:00 AM, Dao-Yin Yoga, Snohomish Brown

Dao-Yin Yoga, which means energy conducting union, is a system of gentle stretches that nurtures and invigorates personal energy and attunes it to maximize vitality. Dao-Yin is part of the Taoist Immortal cultivation tradition and is also part of the Taoist medical system, like physical therapy. Because Dao-Yin energizes and conducts your energy through certain specific channels or meridians in the body, it can also break up and dissipate emotional problems. It is especially effective for people who sit too much or for those who have their energy concentrated in their heads. Snohomish Brown is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and a Licensed Acupuncturist who has been teaching Qi Gong Energy Cultivation and Thai Chi for over twelve years.
