Points through which we receive and release energy


Dahnjon - It has the same meaning as chakra and means energy centre. It's a whirling, vortex-like, powerhouse of energy. When we mention dahnjon we usually refer to the 2 chakra, below your belly button.

Baekwhe - 7th chakra, top of the head, a place where many meridians meet. 

Indang- 6th chakra. Bring your focus between your eyebrows

Throat - 5th chakra

Heart - 4th chakra. Bring your focus to the centre of your chest

Solar Plexus - 3rd chakra

Dahnjon - 2nd chakra, 2 inches below your belly button

Root- 1st chakra, placed at the base of your spine


Deep breathing and energy accumulation postures


A healing sign

When stagnant energy is released from your body, you may experience some discomfort, also called a healing sign. 

Some may include: deep fatigue or tiredness, bruises, itching, soreness, pain in old injury points, old emotions coming-up, headache, nausea, shaking or vibration, cold & flu symptoms, losing/gaining appetite, changing menstruation cycle...

If this happens, do something to facilitate good energy and blood circulation in your body and contact your centre instructor for more support.
