There are three primary principles that determine how energy works in general and more particularly in the human body and brain. These three energy principles are an integral part of the Dahn Yoga practice.
Where the Mind Goes, Energy Follows
Energy follows the direction of your mind and leads to the creation of reality, both in your body and in your life. This principle reminds us to pay attention to what we are thinking and of its power to create our lives.
Water Up, Fire Down
When your head is cool, your chest is open, and your abdomen is warm. your energy and circulation are in optimal balance. Under stress, it is usually reversed, and you become “hotheaded” and sluggish. By learning simple techniques to manage your energy, you can keep the hot fire energy in your belly and cool water energy in your head. In that energy state, you are physically strong and mentally clear.
Stages of Energetic Growth
As you stabilize your physical energy, you will attain emotional well being, leaving a clear mind that will light up your spirit. Our body, mind, and spirit are not separate from each other.
