Jessica Matthews, American Council on Exercise, says:
"The deep breathing that's central to Dahn Yoga expands the diaphragm and the lungs' air pockets, which helps invoke the relaxation response. That's one reason this practice can reduce stress and mental tension and may even help you deal with anxiety and depression."
Our Yoga Class is About More Than Fitness
Have you ever been in a yoga class where participants hold impossible poses for what seems like an eternity? Your initial reason for joining yoga was to destress, but these environments can actually do just the opposite and cause more emotional stress!
Our yoga is more than just a fitness session; the groundwork for our unique approach is total mind and body relaxation. We offer principles and techniques to connect your mind back into your body to be truly present in times where our minds are busier than ever either preoccupied by the past or worrying about the future. This disconnect between mind and body can be stressful and can also contribute to physical discomfort or ailments. Traditional yoga techniques help reconnect mind and body, thus bringing some temporary relief from tension and stress. Dahn Yoga takes this traditional approach a step further by increasing one’s sensitivity to pure energy, an awareness that awakens and activates true mind-body connection.
One of Dahn Yoga’s key energy principles emphasizes the relationship between the mind and energy. Shim Ki Hyul Jung is a Korean phrase that means “Where the mind goes, energy follows.” It starts with learning to focus your mind on your lower abdomen--the core, the absolute center of your body--which maximizes one’s concentration on the body and therefore the overall effectiveness of each exercise. Many scientific studies have shown that how you think about and focus on your own body can contribute to its healing.
Try one of our free classes today and learn to be the master of your own mind-body connection!
