SunDo practice works for the body, emotional and spiritual health.
Emotionally, SunDo helps us to look inside ourselves. There is a special energy, that we call vitality. Children have it abundantly. But adults, because of education and way of life, lose the contact with this energy. Through practice though this energy can be brought back into our bodies and revived.
The physical exercises were created to open the meridian channels and to increase the flow of energy. This will support the healing process to happen in a natural way. Practicing these exercises increases flexibility, balance and improves health. They were made as for all muscles, tendons, joints, organs and glands to properly function, to bring enough oxygen in the whole body through better blood and energy circulation.
SunDo method is easy to learn and can be used by anybody. The only request is to have sincerity and intention into practice. With discipline, it develops body and spirit step by step from where you are at. It is beneficial for everybody, regardless of religion, ideology, age, physical state or health.
SunDo practice was originally done in the mountains where the practitioner could have no fear and views were open, beautiful and inspiring. However, the SunDo practice method is reasonable and based on principle so it can also be practiced in the cities.
