Dahn Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines the ancient wisdom of Ki energy training with modern techniques to maximize the brain‘s functioning.
It is rooted in the rich history of an ancient Asian mind-body practice, Sun Do, and in the wisdom of the Chun Bu Kyung, a 9000 year old text teaching truths about and through Ki energy. From a modern perspective, Sun Do could be considered a way of healthful living that used types of yoga, tai chi, meditation, and martial arts for training the body and mind. Dahn Yoga incorporates many elements of those practices.
Created by Ilchi Lee in 1980, Dahn Yoga as we know it today has something for everyone. The various exercises and workshops offered fit into a comprehensive program called Brain Education System Training.
The purpose of the practice is to develop the human body and brain to realize their ultimate potential. Dahn Yoga is based on a universal philosophy and affirm any religious path or object of worship. It is an experiential system of attaining truth through body and mind awareness.
Through diligent practice, Dahn Yoga practitioners can create a healthy body, clear mind, dignified character, and bright spiritual nature that is not learned but realized. Most importantly, we teach with the belief that peace can be found internally through the body and brain, and then will be naturally expressed externally for the benefit of all.
A Dahn Yoga class is invigorating, fun, and accessible, but most of all, effective. Classes can help you feel energy, improve a great variety of health conditions, and create an enhanced sense of well-being and satisfaction with life.
