What is Do-In Yoga?

Do-In Yoga is a combination of Do-In and Yoga. Do-In originates from the Japanese Dao-Yin and is an ancient physical therapeutic practice, said to be over 5000 years old and possibly even preceding yoga. This practice is the precursor of for example Tai Chi, Qigong, Shiatsu and Martial Arts.

Do-In Yoga combines physical and energy exercises from all of these disciplines in a unique and modern way. Doing these exercises will greatly affect and heal your physical body and its organs, will create balance in your energy meridian system and will bring you into a better mental and emotional state as well!

What will you learn in this retreat?

In this weekend retreat you will learn:

  • Where the 12 main meridians are in your body

  • How to use the meridian clock, the 5 elements and the Ko and Shen cycle

  • How to make movements that are energizing, and healing to your body when it is challenged

  • How to use breath, energy and the 3 dantian of mind, heart and belly (also related to the chakras) in your yoga practice.

  • How to perform a complete series of stretches and exercises that balances all your 12 meridians and that you can practice at home

First Do-In Yoga Retreat in our Lotus Centre in May 2019

Reviews

Below you’ll find 2 reviews of the Do-In Yoga Introductory Retreat that was held in May 2019.

I have been practicing Yoga for several years now and have been enjoying the benefits of it tremendously. I was curious about this Do-In Yoga because I’ve never heard about it before and thought it might be interesting. Sure enough it certainly was. Most of the asanas I am familiar with but the techniques were a bit different and the fact that we learnt about the energy points and the meridians of the body was most welcomed information for me. I am grateful that I did it and so now I have a better appreciation and awareness of every asana that I do now and that makes my Yoga session considerably more dynamic. Also the information on the different timing for the body’s organ-cleansing and detoxing was important for me as well.
So thank you Prabha…. Most grateful.

A fantastic “must-do” retreat with a fabulous teacher! Prabha’s integrative physical and energy exercise practices using the breath, stretches, meridian flows and the five elements created a more balanced physical, mental, emotional state. A unique discovery of the harmonization of meridian energy flows with the meridian clock. For all who like myself, sincerely desire to live a long healthy present life, Do-In Yoga reinforces the power I have to shape the health I want to have as I age.
