To achieve the full benefits of SunDo, class attendance and daily practice are encouraged. Members also benefit by attending SunDo retreats which take place several times a year.
Three categories of Taoist practice include: Religious, Public and Mountain Taoism. Religious Taoism is practiced in temples, while Public Taoism is practiced in everyday life and folk culture. Practitioners of both Religious and Public Taoism depend on intermediaries such as priests, shamans or healers to assist them in rituals that enhance personal growth or moral standards.

Different colored belts are awarded during promotion ceremonies when practitioners are ready to advance to the next level of practice, which often involves learning more challenging postures and different breathing techniques. However, promotion eligibility depends on the consistency and quality of previous practice.
