Gilbert, Ariz. (PRWEB) January 24, 2012 - Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, is proud to announce that one of its franchises, a Texas yoga star, the Woodlands Body + Brain Center has been designated as Center of the Month for January 2012. Students taking Dahn Yoga classes at this picturesque location have been balancing their bodies and minds thanks to the hard work and determination of Center manager Maureen Godfrey. The franchises have grown tremendously since their beginning and this studio, located 35 miles north of Houston, Texas, has been particularly adept at forging its own path of service and leadership.
Helping individuals balance their bodies and minds, center manager Maureen Godfrey may have been destined to fill the role of leader of her Dahn Yoga community. Although she spent time working as a high school dance teacher and a consultant for a Fortune 500 company, she eventually realized her life-long dream of helping others. After immersing herself in Dahn Yoga classes for four years, she opened her own BBC franchise.
"I feel very blessed with wonderful members who are very interesting people and the opportunity for me to grow through this BBC," she said. "Any challenges bring opportunities."
Godfrey's gift with her students is undoubtedly a special one. In fact, one member, who was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, approached Maureen for private lessons in order to improve her well-being and augment her medical treatments. Within four short months the novice practitioner witnessed an elevation in her physical and emotional states as well as the shrinking of her tumors. This may not be a typical story of health recovery at Woodlands, but it is a prime example of how people of various backgrounds and ability levels find an outlet for self-healing.
Going forward, Maureen explains that she wants to continue to help others understand the many Dahn Yoga benefits and expand her classes to hospitals and colleges in the area.
Dahn Yoga is a dynamic mind-body practice originating in Korea. Dahn Yoga classes combine stretching, flowing movement, deep breathing exercises and meditation in a simple and easy to learn format. Dahn Yoga is often taught alongside Tai Chi, QiGong and Meditation classes.
In the United States, Dahn Yoga classes are offered at Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness. Dahn Yoga classes are also offered at Body & Brain franchise, affiliate and community-based locations.
