Dahn Yoga Energy Breathing is a sequence of five postures designed to deepen breathing, open energy channels, and accumulate and circulate ki energy in the body. This enjoyable self-improvement audio training provides an over one-hour workout with these postures, including detailed instruction on body position and breathing. The introductory section provides you with greater understanding of the breathing method and the principles that underlie the practice. Then two tracks of easy-to-follow warm-up exercises will help relax and prepare your body for the actual postures.
After the breathing postures, cool-off exercises help reinvigorate the flow of energy throughout the body. Even if you only have little time and space, Dahn Yoga Energy Breathing will guide you to discover greater energy, flexibility, stress management, relaxation, pain relief, core strength, and rejuvenation.
The 10-page explanatory booklet, gentle guidance from a highly experienced instructor, and inspiring relaxation music will enhance your experience of this transforming, integrative body-mind training.
A great one hour exercise program that is easy to follow and good to mix with a yoga session. I really felt energized after the first session. I love it. Don't forget to download the booklet which makes the postures very clear and gives alternate postures in case of difficulty.

The name for the exercises is Jung-Choon Breathing (not sure why that's not in the description). Easy to follow. A few basic poses to be held for some minutes, with a focus on the breath and energy gathering/movement. Starts out with gentle warm-up and joint rotations.
I did find the routine energizing and slightly (appropriate for me) challenging. Narration is fine, with focus reminders at intervals. The accompanying booklet is excellent, very clear illustrations.
The program should not require any prior experience with yoga or other disciplines.
