Dahn Yoga Community In Atlanta
This Blog is a Dahn Yoga community site, containing contributions, observations and news for Dahn Yoga practitioners in the Greater Atlanta, Georgia area. Because the unique features of Dahn Yoga enable practitioners to develop body awareness and sensitivity to “Ki” (universal energy), it is a component of holistic living.
Many people nowadays are interested in learning about yoga. However, there are many different methods and styles available and the information may be confusing. Unlike most forms of yoga practiced in the United States, Dahn Yoga originates in Korea. Therefore, though many of the techniques may be similar, the practices differ in several important ways:
- Dahn Yoga focuses on the core—with exercises similar to Pilates, some aspects of Dahn Yoga help strengthen the lower abdomen and lower back.
- Dahn Yoga includes a unique emphasis on the brain as the determiner of health and well-being.
- Dahn Yoga incorporates moving meditation, which prepares the body and mind for greater focus.
Dahn Yoga classes are offered at Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., Body & Brain Holistic Fitness centers and community-based locations.
