Body & Brain Yoga
Body & Brain Holistic Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines the ancient wisdom of Ki energy training with modern techniques to maximize the brain's functioning.
It is rooted in the rich history of an ancient Asian mind-body practice, Sun Do, and in the wisdom of the Chun Bu Kyung, a 9000 year old text teaching truths about and through Ki energy. From a modern perspective, Sun Do could be considered a way of healthful living that used types of yoga, tai chi, meditation, and martial arts for training the body and mind. The Body & Brain Holistic Yoga practice incorporates many elements of those practices.
Originally created by Ilchi Lee in 1980, the current practice of Body & Brain Holistic Yoga has something for everyone. The various exercises and workshops offered fit into a comprehensive program called Brain Education System Training. The purpose of the practice is to develop the human body and brain to realize their ultimate potential. It is based on a universal philosophy and affirms any religious path or object of worship. It is an experiential system of attaining truth through body and mind awareness.
Through diligent practice, practitioners can create a healthy body, clear mind, dignified character, and bright spiritual nature that is not learned but realized. Most importantly, we teach with the belief that peace can be found internally through the body and brain, and that it will then will be naturally expressed externally for the benefit of all.
A Body & Brain Holistic Yoga class is invigorating, fun, and accessible, but most of all, effective. Classes can help you feel energy, improve a great variety of health conditions, and create an enhanced sense of well-being and satisfaction with life.
