Dan Ki Woon Gong: Breathing & Meditation
What is Dan Ki Woon Gong?
The dynamics of Dan Ki Woon Gong involves a series of breathing, movement, and concentration exercises in which you learn to move your body's energy. This controlled movement of Ki focuses on generating greater awareness of the interaction between body and mind while accumulating energy. Controlled breathing coupled with greater body awareness produces a variety of benefits. One of the primary objectives of Dan Ki Woon Gong is to maintain a healthy and energetic body that promotes longevity.
Why Should I Practice Dan Ki Woon Gong?
As babies and young children, most of us breathed freely and naturally with our entire bodies. However, our sedentary lifestyles, work environments, and increasingly stressful and busy lives, have conditioned many of us to use shallow, constricted breathing. Many of us breathe only in our upper chests, and this undermines our health, decreases our vitality, and further increases our mental and emotional stress.
Did You Know?
Did you know that shallow chest breathing creates stress and deep abdominal breathing creates relaxation? Did you know the way you breathe drastically affects how long you can expect to live?
You can learn to change how you feel and lower your stress and anxiety simply by changing how you breathe! Breathing often reflects our state of relaxation or excitation. When at rest, breathing is usually slow and rhythmic (such as when asleep). When tense, breathing may be erratic, or we may hold our breath. Controlling breathing will help you become aware of your state of body and mind so you can stay relaxed.
