Dahn Yoga integrates Korean Taoist philosophies and holistic Korean Oriental medicine into a form of yoga that strives to forge stronger connections between mind and body. The certified instructors at Dahn Yoga adhere to these ancient practices and help students of all ages and fitness levels develop core strength, which, according to Dahn philosophy, is the basis of physical, mental, and spiritual health. Through classes, private lessons, and workshops, students learn to link postures with breath control, ultimately developing greater bodily awareness. Besides improving flexibility, strength, and posture, instructors also emphasize the brain's role in overall well-being. They lead brain exercises that challenge and sharpen the mind to develop more productive habits and levitate pennies out of mall fountains.
Dahn Yoga's founder, Ilchi Lee, also built a comprehensive brain-development program—called Brain Education—from the principles upon which Dahn Yoga is founded. Combining physical, emotional, and cognitive exercises with guided imagery and games, Dahn Yoga's instructors develop emotional control, improve communication between the brain's hemispheres, and inspire guests take decisive action. This program has five progressive steps that can be applied to a dedicated yoga practice as well as everyday life.
Borne out of a single boutique in Colombia, Touché Store has expanded its signature line of durable, elegant women's lingerie, swimwear, pajamas, and activewear to more than 38 stores around the world.

Made of fine European fabrics and backed by a staff trained to find the ideal fit, every item keeps silhouettes feeling comfy while exuding a sexier air than Kennedy's historic birthday serenade sung by Lyndon B. Johnson.
The doctors at Woodlands Custom Vision harness the peeper-restoring powers of cutting-edge laser technologies to help patients see clearly without glasses or contact lenses. The blade-free Allegretto Wave Eye-Q procedure utilizes an ultra-thin laser pulse to resculpt the surface of the cornea, correcting vision-related issues such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, calling everyone "Greg," and astigmatism. Prior to undergoing the process, patients submit to a thorough examination to ensure they're a good candidate for the procedure and that the machinery is properly calibrated for their unique ocular orbs. Patients will be able to see immediately after the surgery––which takes seconds per eye––and can continue all normal functioning, including driving and working, the next day. Customers can rest assured that their optical devices are in good hands, as Woodlands Custom Vision has enhanced more than 15,000 sets of eyeballs and is the preferred LASIK center of the Houston Texans and their eyebrows.
