Daoist Qigong is a spiritual discipline that cultivates body and mind simultaneously. No spiritual discipline is complete without integrating its formal practices into everyday life. In this respect, Daoist qigong advocates a lifestyle of simplicity and moderation, encourages the cultivation of generosity, compassion and wisdom, and fosters the development of honor and respect for ourselves and the world.
 
In Level 3, we will learn Hua Tu's Five Animal Forms: tiger, for tendon strengthening; bear, bone strengthening; deer, preserving generative energy; monkey, enhancing agility; and bird, improving sense of balance.

We will be introduced to the Red Phoenix Callisthenics System and the Immortals' Guide to Self-Massage and Breath Regulation, practices for removing blockages in the meridians; aligning the spinal column for optimal circulation of qi; and strengthening tendons, bones and muscles.

We will also learn more standing postures from the Yiquan system.
