What is Yoga Really All About? The Essence of Yoga is Breathing08/26/2014


What does “yoga” mean to you? Does it mean a certain type of commitment? Does it mean exercising in a class with other people? Does it mean doing impossible things with your body? Well, these are all part of the truth of what yoga is. Yoga does involve commitment and discipline, and it involves people learning together through movement of the body. But it is the relaxation within the discipline, the space between each personal connection and the rest between each movement that makes it all meaningful. This is the natural rhythm of breathing. The Earth breathes, our bodies breathe and we all breathe together. Breathing is the cornerstone of yoga practice and it is the element that has the greatest power to change your life.

Over the decades that Dahn Yoga has been in existence, many people have been healed just from breathing. Some people could barely move their bodies when they started, but regained strength and vitality through breathing exercises. Others with relatively healthy bodies gained emotional breakthroughs by breathing. That’s why breathing is a part of everything we do. Whether you are taking our basic yoga classes, trying out our tai chi or joining in advanced meditation, you will experience the benefits of our breathing practice.

Our Jung Choong Breathing series of exercises takes you through different positions to deepen relaxation and expand breathing capacity. The final position #5 is similar to Savasana in Hatha Yoga, but differs in the placement of hands and legs and maintaining focus on the lower abdomen. Try this breathing exercise as a powerful end of a sequence or on its own. See for yourself the difference a breath can make.

    Initial Awakening Workshop

    Venue : Dahn Yoga nomal Center
    Have you ever truly "watched" yourself? Or do you find that your mind often wanders off, consumed with thoughts, tasks, and plans, as well as memories of the past and worries of the future? If your mind isn't in your body, neither is your energy. In this state, your body quickly loses its power. Then you begin to feel that chronic weakness, fatigues and an inability to use your body as you wish are just a natural part of life. In this workshop, an experienced trainer will guide you to carefully observe your body, thoughts and emotions while helping you sense and strengthen your lower core to develop a stronger connection with your body. You will gain a deeper understanding of your body's energy system and how Ki energy works as an intermediary between your mind and body. Benefits include: improvement in your physical condition (strengthen your core), enhanced mental focus and concentration, increase in overall energy levels and more. Please call for more information, or to register for the program. 202-393-2440. Course fee: $295, held at Bethesda Dahn Yoga

    Shim Sung™: Self-Discovery

    Venue : Dahn Yoga Vienna Center
    Do you feel something in your life needs to change, but you don't know what to do or where to start? For anyone who truly wants to make a change, this program is crucial for uncovering exactly where you are and setting the intention for where you want to go. Through the Finding Your True Self workshop, you will have the opportunity to actually connect with your True Self, the "real you", underneath all the layers of habits, judgements, emotions, and memories that we have mistakenly identified as who we really are. Through this workshop, you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the people closest to you so that you can regain self-confidence, eliminate negative patterns, and achieve more harmonious relationships.
