When Nostalgia for Dahn Yoga Strikes...

Honestly, when I think of my own incredible improvement in health from Dahn, I want to go back. I even went to a Dahn Yoga facility in Seoul and considered taking classes as I still suffer in excruciating pain every single day of my life. Like my aunt's old age-scapegoating (see my 11/7/13 post), I had planned on using my nationality (US Citizenship) to feign my lack of understanding to their indoctrination, but I decided against it. My friend from story #2 and I talk about how Dahn positively affected our health, but we both stay away from it because we are Christian.

The main takeaway from this is that knowing something is wrong and being involved in it is SIN. So, regardless of the "good" that Dahn Yoga does for your body, mind, and soul, you should NOT go down that road if you have conflicting values or religious beliefs.

And now, God's Word from the Bible to strengthen and encourage:

1 John 5:18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one does not touch him.

1 Peter 5:8-10 Be self-controlled and vigilant always, for your enemy the devil is always about, prowling like a lion roaring for its prey. Resist him, standing firm in your faith, remembering that the strain is the same for all your fellow-Christians in other parts of the world. And after you have born these sufferings a very little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to share his eternal splendor through Christ, will himself make you whole and secure and strong.


  1. Dahn yoga’s practices are based on the traditional concept of chi, which is often associated with terminologies such as life-force, energy, breathing, medicine, and martial arts. A Dahn yoga exercise regularly starts with a method of exercise known as Meridian Stretching, which is believed to regulate the energy in the body, followed by a series of poses that look almost like regular yoga.

  2. What a blessing! I signed up yesterday for the introductory class. I'm aware of the healing benefits of tai chi and yoga and wanted to try it out at the Dahn center near my home. I prayed shortly afterwards, asking Jesus to protect me from any evil and to just allow me to experience the health benefits and maybe even be a witness. Looking up the school again today, I came across your blog! Accident? No way! The Holy Spirit directed me here in answer to my prayer! I will seek my training in a different setting now after reading this! Sometimes you never know how far your experiences will reach into other's lives! Your sharing here directly affected mine in a positive way! Thank you for your blog and standing tall for your Savior, Jesus Christ! May you be blessed!
