Sun Do is a Korean practice incorporating yoga postures, breathwork, meditation and Ki Energy work.
“Korean Yoga” is a simple way for new students to view the art of Sun Do (literally – “immortal way”. From a modern perspective Sun Do combines the stretching and breathing of yoga with the movements and ki (chi) flow development of tai chi, but it predates many yoga and tai chi systems, and has been practiced virtually unchanged since it was founded almost 10,000 years ago in ancient Korea. It is very popular in Korea and on the east and west coasts of the US.
A Sun Do practice begins with meditation, then a series of stretching exercises to loosen and relax the body. Next, the practitioner performs various physical postures during a 40 minute period of tancheon (lower abdominal) breathing. Afterward, a Sun Do practice concludes with a series of cool-down stretching exercises that circulate energy which promotes healthy functioning of the internal organs. The practice ends with some calisthenics and strengthening exercises.
Techniques are easily modified for those with physical limitations and you progress at your own pace. It is especially effective at increasing the overall health of older students by increasing energy, flexibility and circulation.
