Japanese yoga incorporates Asian philosophies. In this class we work with the Meridian systems [acupuncture points] of the body and the five element theory [earth, metal, water, wood, fire]. Specific exercises and asanas are performed for each season, time of day, and the ever changing needs of people. This means that every class is different allowing for more harmony and support.
The breath is used with every movement to move Qi [energy] through the body releasing stagnation and a huge focus is placed on strengthening the Tanden [hara, core]. Japanese yoga is extremely effective in generally strengthening the body as well as increasing flexibility.
It’s a very holistic, therapeutic and zen style of yoga bringing the body and mind into balance, leaving you feeling invigorated, strong and alive, designed to suit everyone and at any level.
