Instruction and Information

Body Energy Concept

SunDo works with the Daoist energy concept of man. We can know it from traditional Chinese medicine. These are the three main energy centers of the body, the so-called dancheons (dantian, tchan-tien).

Dantians are located: Lower, below the navel. Middle, in the region of the heart (roughly at the level of the nipples) and Upper, in the brain region.

It can be said that the energy level corresponds to the three dantien as follows: To the upper dantien belongs the mind. To the middle, spirit. To the lower, body.

It is necessary for each level to be nourished and clean, then a person can function harmoniously and develop in a balanced way.

SunDo practice intention and breathing instructions

At the beginning of the practice, SunDo primarily nourishes the lower dantien so that one has stable roots and strength for one's progress.

This happens mainly through the breathing meditation, when in 25 positions we perform eight breaths with a 5 second inhale, and a 5 second exhale – this breathing pattern applies to the initial 60 or so exercises, then the pattern changes.

In the breathing meditation, the breath is guided into the lower dantien area, slowly, calmly, and evenly so that the body remains effortless but alive and the mind is focused, so that it does not create tension in the nervous system or in the body.
