As a 15th Generation Wudang Sanfeng Pai and 26th Generation Longmen Pai practitioner of the Daoist arts, I've been immersed in a conscious lifestyle since birth and have understood that there was more than met the eye from a very young age. This curiosity has woven an amazing path of knowledge, techniques, stories and experiences that I share with students and friends all over the world to help them lead healthy, harmonious and happy lives.
Dao Moving Meditation combines the ancient techniques of tai chi, qi gong, dao yin, alchemy and meditation into a fluid class which focuses on our basic movements and body structure to increase our vitality, stress management and overall health and wellness. Each class is a little different than the other, as those who participate in the creation and synergy of the class. It is in common affinity that we meet and connect.
Many of us lead such busy schedules and lives that it is challenging to make a scheduled class, or some of us have needs that we would like tended to on a one on one basis. Whether you have anxiety and would like to work on specific breath exercises and techniques, a high stress-level job that you would like specific intentional movements to bring your focus back, are unsatisfied with your body figure or in general "hate your life" and are uncomfortable around others, a private session is perfect for you.
I can come to you and practice out in a yard or park, or in the comfort of your own living room.

Some unique and great things that are taught along with foundational and detailed breathing and movement synchronization of key movements that naturally brings about harnessing energy flow naturally. This is rare since most classes are just visually following a teacher without any of the detailed hands on feedback. This is true for master yoga teachers as well that I've come across and breathing with motion is one of the key pieces for good yoginis, so what we learn can be passed to yoga and just daily living in stressful situations and to get energized (especially if you're a desk jockey like me).
Sam is a great teacher!! I really appreciate their classes, the circle of this class is full of good intentions, learnings and laugh :). I used to practice Japanese archery and helped me to be like water, shaping to face all the challenges of the week, and with this moving meditations I recover the same state, on focus and balance every day, I really miss the classes, now I'm in my country hoping to return. muchas muchas gracias por todas las clases, me ayudaron mucho!! volveré algún día!
