What is Japanese Yoga?

Yoga – working with the Meridians in the Body

Japanese Yoga (also known as Ki yoga, Meridian yoga, Therapy Yoga, Shinshin-Toitsu-Do and Okido) is different to other forms of yoga in that it works with the same meridians in the body as accupuncture and zen shiatsu and incorporates elements of Traditional Eastern Medicine (yin and yang theory and 5 Element Theory – Fire, Water, Earth, Metal and Wood. This means it works with the organs in the body at a much deeper and therapeutic level by stimulating energy of the body’s pathways. Japanese yoga also includes modern exercise science and some elements from martial arts.

Japanese yoga benefits and challenges even the fittest of particpants, as well as being a powerful healing system to relieve and improve chronic pain such as back pain, tension and tight muscles such as shoulders, neck, hips, PSOAS, problematic knees, headaches, menopause, infertility and endometriosis!

We also work with diapragmatic breathing in Japanese yoga which activates our parasympathetic nervous system. Japanese yoga is a very dynamic and powerful healing form of yoga, requiring concentration and effort on the participants’ part. A lot of instruction is given in Japanese yoga, therefore listening skills are important. It is difficult to think about or concentrate on anything else other than the session you are participating in. This is one part of what makes this style of yoga a mindful practice. You will completely zone out everything else going on in life and around you, being totally present and within yourself whilst achieving amazing physical benefits.

There is not a large focus on poses such as Sun Salutations, Downward Dogs, Triangles, Windmills or even Tree Poses. The work is done on the mat mostly supine or prone and works on the internal organs as much as the external muscles. There is a large focus with working with the spine. After the age of 20, the only way we can keep our spine from degenerating is by moving the spine ourselves in various movements (arching, twisting, bending etc). You just need to know how!

Once participants try this powerful and healing form of yoga,  they tend to choose it over other forms of yoga. Come and try it for yourself.

Why do Japanese Yoga?

Japanese Ki Yoga is tailored to the individual’s needs. It can be used to assist with a number of conditions such as sports injuries, back pain, high blood pressure, menopause, insomnia, anxiety, panic disorder, digestive issues and endometriosis. Japanese Yoga is a great overall approach to general health and fitness, the most naturally powerful healing system you will find!
