Taoist Practice in Ancient Times was called 'Tan Tao' - 丹道 - which means the Way of Developing the Inner Elixir - the Purified Inner Energy - which arises and is developed in the Tan Tian Center. Tan Tao practice was the way of the Mountain Taoists - Mountain Mystics following the Way of the Immortals – This method had many secret ways of training the Dantian Center to enhance health, longevity and spiritual awakening. In modern times, we often refer to this type of practice as Taoist Yoga, and these Ancient Methods were a precursor to many of the modern styles of Qigong and Neigong we find in the public. The style we teach we refer to as the - TaoYoga Arts System - the TaoYoga Arts System cultivates and awakens the "Qi" or Universal Healing Energy step by step within the practitioner; Qi can be thought of as the underlying essence of all life and the very fabric of the universe. When we have an abundance of Qi Energy, we gain Vital Health, Healing, Longevity, and feel a deeper connection with Life, Nature and all things...


Tao - Absolute Natural Principle

The Practice of the TaoYoga Arts System will bring a Smooth and Harmonious flow of Qi Energy, which gives us greater health, healing and brings us close to the experience of the Great Tao.

Qi Energy can be thought of as the underlying essence of all life, all form and literally the very fabric of the entire universe – Qi Energy is something very close and intertwined with the Great Tao.  The Great Tao is the absolute natural principle which is the Root of all creation, movement, and transformation of the Universe.  Tao is the Root of all life and all things - large or small.

When we begin to Practice the TaoYoga Arts System – we gain a Harmony with Qi Energy and we become aware of the present moment, and the change which takes place in all things – we experience life in a Way which is in harmony with the natural order of all things – giving us an ultimate experience of True Life Enhancement - and a Deep sense of Balance...


From the mists of time, mankind has been exploring what it means to be a human being in this world and how we can reach our greatest potential as individuals and as a collective. Among the most ancient of those inquiries of Self comes from the Taoist Tradition. For thousands of years, those studying and practicing the Great Way of Tao have passed on the wisdom they have gained through Meditation, Observation of Nature and the Awakening of Self.  We seek to pass on the Practice of Tao through our TaoYoga Arts System.  Our learning takes place following a structured, step by step process - which begins with the Tao Breath Work, Transformation of the Body and Opening of the Energetic system - guiding one to a Harmony with Nature.  The Final Stage of Practice guides one through the deep and profound work of Taoist Inner Alchemy.  The ability to approach Self Transformation within the framework of an organised system, enables one to make constant and steady progress - moving forward in a defined direction - with observable results, progress and benefits.

"The transformation I’ve experienced from Tao Yoga practice has been incredibly supportive in my life.."

After having taught yoga for over ten years, and been practicing a variety of styles with a range of teachers since I was a child, I had been yearning for some guidance into more subtle and energetic approaches. I came across Jesse and the Tao Yoga Arts System and so resonated with the way Jesse relates these ancient alchemical practices in such an accessible way. 

It is clear that Jesse’s knowledge and embodiment of Taoist theory come with a lifetime of experience.. it is rare to find a teacher of this ancient wisdom from the East, who can be so relatable in our modern and westernised way of living, and hold such a complete system that fulfils all aspects of being a human (physical body, energetic, mental, emotional, vitality, longevity, and spirituality). I’ve never felt so adeptly guided in how to work with my internal energies.

The transformation I’ve experienced from Tao Yoga practice has been incredibly supportive in my life.. If my structural body is the hardware, then my energetic body must be like the software. Tao Yoga has allowed me to develop and nurture myself deeply from that energetic layer, and I realised that the software informs the hardware! From developing and nurturing the energetic aspects of myself, my body is feeling as vital as ever, and I’ve reached the most sustained level of calm and happy emotionally and centred mentally that I’ve ever felt. Since beginning Tao Yoga my ability to be adaptable and be “in flow” in my relationships and life’s circumstances has improved dramatically. I am so thankful for that! I’m happy to now be sharing the goodness of Tao Yoga with my own students and communities in Australia and abroad!

The TaoYoga Arts System follows an Ancient Formula of Taoist Practice - 'Cultivation of the Three Treasures'.  This Formula guides one through Three unique Stages of Development - the Physical, the Energetic, and the Spiritual - thus it is a complete approach to Holistic Development.  The Taoist School is unique in it's view, and they unite the Physical with the Energetic - and both the Physical and Energetic Systems are brought through a process of transformation.   The Transformation of the Physical is focused on the muscle, tendon, fascia, organ, and bone.  The Transformation of the Energetic System is focused in the beginning on the Dantian Center, the 8 Spiritual Vessels, 5 Energy Gates, and the related 12 Organ Meridian Network.  Through guided training, the Physical and the Energetic gain a Union and a Harmony - balancing all aspects of Self.  Truly a wonderful, Holistic approach to gain Harmony of Self and Nature.  A key and important foundation of all the work in the TaoYoga Arts System revolves around the Training, Development and Transformation of the DanTian Center.  

This term - DanTian – 丹田 -  can be traced back to its origin in ancient China, and is related to the quest for Spiritual Immortality, Enlightenment, Longevity and Eternal Life.

DAN - 丹 - can be translated as - Elixir / Immortal Medicine / Inner Medicine.

TIAN - 田 - can be translated as the mysterious field of emptiness which lies between Heaven & Earth.

The DanTian or Field of Immortal Elixir is perhaps the most central concept and training method we may find in the Taoist Yoga, Meditation and Spiritual Arts of Ancient China.

This Energetic Cavity, or Center is the Source from which all Inner Energy is Awakened and Developed.  In the Foundation Training of the TaoYoga Arts System, we teach specific methods and training forms to Awaken and Develop this Root Energetic Center - the DanTian - Field of Immortal Elixir -
