Master Paulie Zink is the founder of Yin yoga. He received intensive private training for ten years as the sole protege
of Chinese Taoist yoga and Kung fu Master Cho Chat Ling. A three time international martial arts grand-champion, Paulie is renowned for his fluidity, flexibility and artistry of motion. Through his many years of practice and study he has evolved the ancient Taoist tradition of yoga into his own unique style he calls Yin and Yang yoga. With his relaxed and playful demeanor, students find him to be a very approachable and enjoyable teacher. He brings to his teaching over 30 years experience and a profound knowledge he conveys with a simple clarity that comes from true understanding.
Master Zink's Yin and Yang yoga is an earth honoring tradition born out of the indigenous Taoist health practices and spiritual philosophies of ancient China. Taoist principles follow the way of simplicity and living in harmony with nature. In Paulie's workshops students learn to let go of concepts to free themselves from the constraints of the thinking mind, grow the body supple, flow with movement, and be in harmony with their own individual Tao, or way of being.
Master Zink's complete art of Yin and Yang yoga encompasses:
Yin Yoga- Postures of stillness for promoting growth, clearing energetic blockages, and enhancing circulation.
Yang Yoga- Postures for developing core strength and muscle tone, balance, and stamina.
Taoist Flow Yoga- Including both Yin and Yang yoga, Taoist Flow is more than just a sequence of postures. In Taoist Flow the process of transition from pose to pose is as integral to the practice as the postures themselves. Taoist movement incorporates continuous, smooth and circular motion that promotes ease, fluidity and grace in the body.
Taoist Alchemy- Cultivating and harmonizing the five elemental energies contained in the body and its energetic field.
