This course is designed to introduce students to the study of proper Dao Yin training and rectifying qi deviations.  Time is spent gaining a deeper understanding of the internal principles of postural, respiratory and mental Dao Yin training so that students develop a deeper comprehension of the body's energetic relationship to the physical structure as well as deviations of the psyche. Time will be spent discussing Qi Deviations, their development and how to rectify them.
