What is Do-In?

Do-In is the Japanese name given to an ancient exercise practice that promotes health as well as physical, mental and spiritual development. It is an integral part of the Taoist philosophy that became Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Do-In, or Tao Yinn in Chinese, is said to have been around for 10,000 years and developed from the instinctual need to create balance in the body. It is the refinement of the natural activities of breathing, moving, pressing, rubbing and stretching into a system of exercises and techniques that create flow and harmony of the forces that influence the body.
