DAOIST PARTNER PRACTICES
CANBERRA, ** RESCHEDULED** 24th – 25th JULY
2 half day workshops hosted by the awesome Praksis facility in Canberra! Both days will be focused on partner training in the tradition of Da Xuan.
On Saturday we will look at partner training for grounding, the capacity to hold our position in space with both strength and relaxation. A critical part of our training, the partner provides a ‘reality check’ for our felt sense of grounding, progressively providing more and more chaos to our situation so we can know our grounding works regardless of the environment.
On Sunday we will use partner exercises to train relaxation and coordination. These drills will help the mind communicate with the body in clarity, and without resistance, so we can move in the directions we want to move without fighting ourselves, and respond with ease to changes in the environment (provided kindly by our partners ;)).
Participants can come to either workshop as a stand alone event, or both for a full weekend of immersion into Daoist practices. There are no prerequisites for the workshop, all are welcome regardless of age or ability, and all exercises can be scaled accordingly.
When (** THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED**):
Saturday July 24th: 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Sunday July 25th: 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Single Day: $140**
Both Days: $230**
**Praksis members are eligible for a discount. Contact Tom or Craig for the discount code.

A full day workshop that will immerse you in the practice of Dao Yin.
Dao Yin appears on the outside to look very much like pilates or yoga. It is done primarily lying on your back and learning to extend, roll and rotate using the power of the lower center and the strength of the back while learning to progressively reduce tension in the extremities. Using Dao Yin we will:
- Find a clear expression of the lower centre
- Reveal hidden tensions that can then be resolved
- Train weak links
- Find an experience of deep relaxation
- Discover the source of Yang in the back and how it relates to the front
- Build an strong and relaxed structure
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
10am – 4pm (Lunch Break around 12pm)
Early Registration: $180
Late Registration: $230
