Dahn Yoga Basics

Dahn Yoga is a holistic system that is simple, intuitive and ultimately rewarding. Yoga is generally considered a practice to unify all aspects of the self. Dahn Yoga is a dynamic mind-body practice originating in Korea. Dahn Yoga basics combine meridian stretching, flowing movement, deep breathing exercises and meditation in a simple and easy to learn format.

Most Dahn Yoga basics can be performed either indoors or outside, as long as the temperature is moderate and the environment relaxing. Typically, a practitioner will wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Oftentimes a long white vestment made of natural fibers—called a DoBok—works best. Shoes are generally not worn during meditation.

“Dahn” means “energy” and Dahn Yoga basics are distinguished by techniques which help the practitioner understand and develop sensitivity to Ki (energy). Ki, the energy that pervades and binds all thing, is also that which connects the body and mind.

Learning Dahn Yoga basics is an exploration that may take multiple sessions, since maximizing its potential involves relaxing and letting go of everyday stress. With practice, the basics of Dahn Yoga may be pursued to their logical endpoint—a union or oneness of mind and matter, which takes as its bond the gentle energy vibrating within each of us.
