MEDITATION, THE MIND AND BREATH
Meditation is a self-directed practice for relaxing the body and calming the mind. Most meditative techniques have come to the West from Eastern religious practices of many nations. Until recently, the primary purpose of meditation has been religious, although its health benefits have long been recognized. It is now being further explored as a way of reducing stress on both mind and body.
Studies have found that regular meditation can reduce healthcare use; increase longevity and quality of life; reduce chronic pain; reduce anxiety; reduce high blood pressure; reduce serum cholesterol level; reduce substance abuse; increase intelligence-related measures; reduce post-traumatic stress syndrome in Vietnam Vets & lower blood cortisol levels initially brought on by stress.
Breathing is one of the most important events in the human existence and by focusing intention and belief into breath the body can increase energy levels, regenerate cell and release negative stress.
Dragon Tao Instructor Brian Wood became intrigued by meditation when he found Yoga in 2001. He soon realized the missing link in his personal life as well as in athletics. His passion led him to China in 2008 & 2010 and Thailand in 2012 to study Buddhist and Taoist and meditation methods leading towards mental and spiritual enlightenment.

He fought for the spirit of his culture and the honor of his people in defiance of tyranny and oppression and in doing so became a legend and still to this day his teachings came be found worldwide.
