Do-In Ho

Do-in Ho training at Korinji Monastery in Wisconsin

Do-in Ho is a series of 54 body exercises that are integrated into daily practice at Korinji, divided into 3 sections: a self-massage routine, body integration exercises, and breathing forms.

Do-in means "to guide and pull”, referring both to the bodily movements employed and the movement of vital currents in the body.

Through these exercises one's vitality may be settled and increased, while congestion and blockages may be dissolved. The forms simultaneously strengthen and tone the muscles and stretch the fascia and nerves, helping to both balance and integrate the body. Do-in Ho forms may be practiced by anyone and are excellent for health. They are practiced during all of our retreats, and also daily by monastery residents.
