Though it is based on familiar concepts like yoga, meditation and tai chi, Dahn Yoga is a unique mind-body system that facilitates radical changes in personal health and outlook. Founded in the 1980s, the system utilizes deep breathing, stretching and contemplation-in-motion to reconnect the mental and physical selves.
Today, tens of thousands of Americans come together in community centers across the country to practice Dahn Yoga together. By concentrating on the aspects of health that one usually overlooks - posture, stance, breathing, energy flow - individuals may find an unexpected sense of peace and tranquility.
This blog features the personal stories of Dahn Yoga practitioners in the Boston, Massachusetts, area and offers videos to help new students work on the techniques.
