Where Dahn Yoga practitioners share their experiences
Individuals who practice Dahn Yoga brain wave vibration – which is a form of moving meditation – know that the urge to practice yoga can occur anywhere, since it can be done effortlessly out in the open. To wit, a flash mob of 100 people recently performed yoga in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, according to WCBD TV, an NBC affiliate.
Skip Rector, a yoga instructor at the College of Charleston, told the news station that the idea occurred to him in 2010, when he visualized hundreds of students doing the "sun salute" pose together.
After conferring with some of his students, Rector decided that they could all do a little yoga in public as part of a flash mob, which is a group of individuals who suddenly perform an unexpected activity in the middle of a crowded area before quickly dispersing.
"The students in my classes were extremely enthusiastic when I mentioned it and we just went from there," he told the news source. "During the mob, seeing so many people doing yoga was empowering – students coming together in unison to do something that is good for them individually and also to show observers that anyone can do yoga."
