Introduction to Taoist Yoga

Saturday, May 18, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

A complete approach to health and wellness, Taoist Yoga is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and can be used to correct imbalances and heal the body. Learn the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and how to apply asanas (postures), breathing, visualization, and relaxation exercises to adjust the flow of energy through the meridians (energy pathways) of your body for optimal health and wellness.

John Votaw, a personal disciple of Grandmasters in Taoist Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and meditation, will teach the origins and philosophy of Taoist yoga and how it is applied as a complete approach to health and wellness appropriate for people of all ages and abilities. Head Life Yoga Instructor Tasmin Walker will then instruct practices within the Life Yoga system consisting of:

  • Releasing practices for relieving tension from the connective tissue and muscular system
  • Strengthening practices for generating more strength with less effort
  • Practice-Based Healing for creating imbalances within yourself
  • Longevity practices for extending the length and quality of your life

John Votaw, founder of the Life Yoga system, is an ordained Ch’an (Zen) Buddhist Teacher and a trained Taoist Master. He has spent over 25 years practicing and teaching the arts of yoga, meditation, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tasmin Walker is certified in multiple styles of yoga and has spent several years in meditation centers around the world.
