Dahn yoga has been in the news for the past couple of years since a woman died during its master training. According to Wikipedia, Dahn yoga is a Korean yoga system founded by Ilchi Lee. Dahn teachings are said to place equal emphasis on physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It has been labeled as a cult by some due to the high cost of Dahn membership and accusations of “suppression of individuality.” Followers praise Dahn yoga for helping them with a number of physical ailments. Does anyone have any experience with Dahn yoga?
