The enthusiasts in our Georgia yoga classes sometimes ask us if we've tried other personal change models and, if we did, what we thought of them. They're often curious because they've delved into other personal improvement regimens themselves. And usually they agree with our answers: Yes, and yoga takes the cake!
You see, our mind-body system entails all the benefits of deep breathing, stretching, meditation, tai chi, qigong, acupressure and brain wave vibration without any of the pesky aches and pains that are associated with other regimens.
Even other types of yoga can't measure up to Dahn Yoga itself. Consider a book recently published by New York Times senior reporter William J. Broad. Called The Science of Yoga, the text describes some of the injuries that practitioners have suffered while doing vigorous, excessively gymnastic forms of holistic exercise.
At Dahn Yoga, that's not what we're about. Our community centers don't push heavy exercise or back-breaking stretches on students. Instead, our holistic routine centers around activities that relax the body and open up the mind.
That way, you can improve your mental, physical and spiritual well-being all at once.
