As he searched how to share his enlightenment, Ilchi Lee discovered that the wisdom he had received reflected the wisdom contained in a 9,000-year old sacred Asian text called the Chun Bu Kyung, and that of the traditional Korean Sun Do practice.
Sun Do originated from the ancient Korean people in Northeast Asia. It was practiced as part of popular culture during the Dahngun era, from 2333-108, and then disappeared into the mountains where it continued to be practiced in secret by Sun Do masters for centuries.
From a modern perspective, Sun Do may be considered similar to other types of yoga, tai chi, meditation, or martial arts. Dahn Yoga includes most of the elements of these body and mind practices.
Dahn Yoga, first introduced in Korea as Dahnhak Seonwon (Vital Energy Arts Center), grew steadily in Korea throughout the 80â€™s and 90â€™s. In the mid 90â€™s, Ilchi Lee retired from management of Dahn Centers and went on to pioneer ways to use Ki energy to maximize the potential of the brain. He developed Brain Respiration, an early precursor to todayâ€™s Brain Wave Vibration. Brain Respiration became so popular that it was named a "hit product" by two popular Korean newspapers in 2002.
Dahnhak had spread to the U.S. in 1991, at the invitation of a Korean businessman living in Philadelphia. Centers grew steadily over the years, and eventually added a franchise system in 2008.
