dao yin translates as “cultivating the chi”, lung shen as “dragon spirit” (like the serpentine energy of the kundalini.) this system evolved about 1650 AD. it is a chinese tradition evolved and practiced by taoist mystics to heal illness, process stress and slow the aging process. as with all forms of yoga, the rewards are many, including increased strength, flexibility, grace and endurance. all systems and organs are benefitted, including the muscular and skeletal systems, digestion, immune function, oxygen distribution and lymphatic flow. the endocrine system is also uniquely activated releasing hormones and endorphins into the body. dao yin has the intent of integration of mind, body and spirit. the focus on careful regulation of breath, deep states of relaxation, and specific postures and movements create well-being. regular practice can help you attain a balance of energy, which promotes the free flowing activity of the vital energy we call chi. dao yin opens the energy pathways so that the chi may flow unimpeded. it can be used for both healing and power in chinese medicine. ltimately with this combination of postures, breathing, movements and concentration, a resonant cord is struck with the spirit. this integration of the internal and external creates a more sensitive consciousness, a certain enlightened awareness, and an overall sense of well-being.
The number of jobs at the plant today is more than four times what was promised when BMW announced it would build a plant in the Upstate 25 years ago. This, and Flor’s prediction the workforce will soon exceed 10,000, are thanks in large part to the success of car models built at the plant. Out of the more than 2 million BMWs sold worldwide in 2016, about a fifth were X models made in South Carolina. And although the larger, more expensive X5 and X6 SUVs experienced small declines in sales last year, the X3 enjoyed a nearly 14 percent jump in sales. Its sister the X4 also enjoyed a 5.5 percent gain.
The BMW X3 actually seems to have some more utility to it, or at least the appearance of having more utility. The new X3 is much better looking than its predecessor and, to these eyes, a handsome little crossover. Is it better looking than the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class? I’m not so sure but I think it really comes down to preference, as both are so different. If you prioritize luxury over aggression, go Stuttgart, if you like muscles over smooth lines, go Munich.

In the New Testament Book of James, the author tells Christ’s followers not to boast of tomorrow: “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow,” James 4:14 says. “What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
"My wife worked for St Patricks and they do a lot of work raising awareness for domestic violence, so I thought we could do the same,” Mr Mooney said.
