Body&Brain is based on a traditional Korean Sun Do Practice that dates to 5,000 years BC. This practice was once a part of popular culture in Northeast Asia during the Dahngun era. However, mainstream culture has moved away from this practice and for centuries it was only practiced in secret by Sun Do masters who lived away in the mountains.
The main principle of Body&Brain holistic training integrates Korean Taoist philosophy and Korean Medicine tradition taken from 9,000 year old sacred text called Chun Bu Kyon that teaches us about physical, mental and spiritual health. A deep understanding of lifeforce energy or "Ki" is fundamental to this concept of health.
This practice is an energy practice that is so much more than solely physical exercise. Based on timeless universal principles, it's purpose is holistic and continual self-development. By following these principles it helps us to achieve expression of these principles in our daily life.
We live our mission every day by delivering integrative lifestyle education and guidance for health, mindful and sustainable living to individuals, groups and communities.
A little bit of history

He developed his lessons based on an ancient Korean practice called Sun Do or Sun Tao. The principles of Sun Do may be likened to tai chi, yoga, martial arts forms, meditation and other mind-body practices that grow character and consciousness.
Now with the centres accross the globe, Ilchi Lee is working every day to find workable means of fostering a more peaceful, sustainable global culture. Various organisations have been created holding these principles at their core, like IBREA, Earth Citizen Organization, Tao Fellowiship etc that work in collaboration with Ilchi Lee teaching humanity about sustainable physical, mental and spiritual health. Ilchi Lee is continually collaborating with the United Nations in order to achieve their common vision of ultimate human development and world peace.
