Where Dahn Yoga practitioners share their experiences
In a way, it is appropriate that a large yoga event will be held in Virginia Beach, a town that already knows so much about relaxation and stress reduction. A three-day yoga festival will be held in the city's Oceanfront Hotel, according to the news site Hampton Roads.
One yoga instructor told the website that after years of not understanding what the big deal was, all the benefits of practicing yoga finally fell into place in her mind.
Kate Patterson, who teaches yoga in Hawaii, said that what finally won her over was the self healing power of the regimen, of which humans have been making use for thousands of years. Specifically, Patterson took up the soothing, holistic mind-body system after a medical condition left her unable to go jogging.
"I realized that it was such a very healing method. It changed my life," she told the source. Now, she is hosting the festival, hoping to change the lives of others. "The problem, according to yoga, is that we're disconnected, and the solution, according to yoga, is to reconnect."
For those who practice Dahn Yoga, reestablishing the link between mind and body is the number one priority.
