Body & Brain Exercises
I dream of a world where all people live healthier, happier and more peaceful lives. I truly believe this is possible, and I believe that possibility lies within each of us! In my 20 years of teaching, I have seen hundreds of students receive countless benefits from Body & Brain, and most importantly I myself have discovered a new meaning of being alive from this practice.
So, I decided to share some videos with you that I made almost a decade ago. Ok, a little outdated, I know, but the training methods and principles are timeless. In fact, the videos are so old they were made before we branded ourselves to Body & Brain Yoga, so you might still see the description as “Dahn Yoga”. However, please note it is all the same ancient Korean yoga/tai chi practice, now just with a name that more clearly explains what we do in English!
Even though they are old, I keep them here because I want people to have easy access to the powerful basics of this exercise, as well as someone to practice with. Feel free to check them out if you like, and enjoy! I hope they bring a bit more health, happiness and peace into your life, as they have into mine 🙂
