The Dragon is an image we find in many forms of Taoist Yoga, Qigong, Nei Gong, Tao Yin and the Martial Arts. The Dragon in Taoist Culture is a Mystical Pure Yang Animal - one that is Heavenly, Spiritual and Auspicious. The Coiling Dragon form seen here is one section taken from our Golden Lotus form training in the TaoYoga Arts System.

In the practice of Qigong, Neigong and Taoist Yoga we are taught various aspects of the Energy Body, such as the 'Energy Gates' and the '8 Spiritual Vessels'. Learning about our Energetic Anatomy is a very important step in our ‘Awakening’. Awakening to our True Nature as divine, ‘Energetic Beings’. We are not limited to just this physical form of our ‘Body’ and the physical world. We also have a vibrant, dynamic, and sacred ‘Energy Body’.
