The relaxation techniques and health-enhancing qualities of yoga have impressed countless individuals all over the world. Many have wandered aimlessly through the desert of life before coming upon the oasis of Dahn Yoga exercises, which promote meditation, inner peace and mindfulness.
The deep breathing methods and calming postures of the practice are meant to strengthen one's awareness of the body, which can lead to a better relationship between mental and physical well-being.
Although some people equate yoga with difficult stretches that require athleticism, the regimen can be done by anyone who wishes to reforge their mind-body connection. Simple Dahn Yoga exercises that are performed with a gentle smile and deep breaths have been incorporated by individuals from all walks of life, regardless of their level of experience.
"You see, it's easy to believe that you have to look a certain way to practice yoga," wrote one practitioner in Opposing Views, who overcame her preconceptions of the practice and found a relaxing exercise that she intends to continue for life. "[The poses] did more than give me a new physical orientation – [they] gave me a new mental one as well."
