Dinohra M. D., Certified psychiatrist
Dahn Yoga is an enriching experience, irrespective of age, physical ability or meditation experience. The results of this practice are a sense of peace and harmony. As you proceed through the exercises, the limits of your abilities will be expanded beyond your present imagination.
This form of exercise is gradual yet gentle. Everyone in the program moves along at his/her own pace and level of comfort. Among the practitioners there is no competition or rivalry; just a sense of unity and a heartfelt responses. Through Dahn Yoga, you can discover a state of harmony with others in an environment that supports acceptance, tolerance and patience. You will uncover your strengths in your personal search for the truth. You will begin to take responsibility for your actions with a willingness and desire to change habits that are not useful.

Ever since I was 15 I had been looking for something more out of life. I tried different organizations and different people. I read books, magazines and literature on the Internet. Everything I tried would be OK for a while, but inevitably I would realize that it didn’t fit quite right. Then I discovered Dahn Yoga. Through Dahn Yoga practice, I discovered a wonderful sense of serenity within myself. It feels like everything that I have experienced has been tied together into a perfect centralized thing instead of scattered pieces of information.

Dahn Yoga was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. The energy of classes is truly amazing. I know it is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. In an environment that is loving, totally non judgmental and totally supportive we laugh, share, play, meditate and learn. The masters are all wonderful and full of smiles and laughter as usual. Everything in my life keeps getting better and better since I started the Dahn Yoga. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to any one wishing to better themselves.
I will only tell you that it changed me profoundly. I now understand more about the purpose of Dahn Yoga in the scheme of human evolution as never before. I also have come to understand my own purpose and that of all the inhabitants of this earth plane as never before.
Sharon D. (Glenview, IL)
Attracted by a flyer that promised me a better way to handle daily stress, I joined an exercise and meditation class at a center in Glenview, Illinois. The Korean instructors there teach classes which remind one of Tai-Chi or Yoga- they lead beginners through a series of simple physical exercises and wind down a class with a period of peaceful and relaxing meditation. For someone like me who is intimidated by the pretzel-like positions that yoga requires and who has put off trying meditation because she simply did not know how to go about it, this class was a revelation.
Mory K. (London, United Kingdom)
The weekend Dahn Yoga workshop ‘Initial Awakening’ has been transforming experiences. In term of knowing and learning ways to create an awareness of my body, mind and spirit. With my new tools, I know that I’m going to create a life of my own vision and wisdom and share with others my experiences. I’ve found the combination of exercises and meditation truly life transforming.
Laurie S. (Chicago, IL)
The book Healing Society and the movement it represents, have shaken me to my not-so-flexible toes, and set me down gently on a path of beauty, joy, harmony and pure delight- more so than any of the many popular movements toward holistic health that I’ve investigated in my more than five decades of guarded research.
I’ve never felt so consistently good: balanced, lively, energized and just generally happy with my day to day life, and full of the most delicious sense that there’s more and better just down the road. Gone is the dismal pack of annoying ailments and dysfunctional habits. I used to cart around: I’m light footed and free (plus, I’m losing weight!).
