Discover shin shin tōitsu-dō – the way of mind and body unification.
Japanese yoga is a study of universal principles of nature and how they can be used to help us in our daily lives. The goal of this way of mind and body unification is to have free use of mind and body: to be natural, stress-free, effective and harmonious in our actions and interactions with others. Experience how your body reflects your state of mind, and learn to use biofeedback to find a naturally calm and stable state of being.
Learn and develop key skills for life:
✔︎ understanding of the quality of your state of mind
✔︎ relaxed and positive approach to challenges
✔︎ breathing and relaxation techniques
✔︎ meditation while sitting, standing and moving
Learn ki-aikido, a harmonious and dynamic martial art for peaceful conflict resolution.
Aikido literally means “the way of harmony with ki”. At our friendly dojo we practice ki-aikido – also known as shin shin tōitsu aikido (aikido with mind and body unified). Our aikido classes help develop an understanding of ki (energy, intentionality) to lead opponents by moving together, rather than colliding or fighting.
Using principles drawn from Japanese yoga, the goal of our practice is to have free use of mind and body. We strive to be be natural, effective and harmonious in our actions and interactions with others while developing skills for self-defence and daily life in a safe and co-operative environment.
✔︎ develop flexibility and dexterity
✔︎ learn skills for self-defence and daily life
✔︎ improve your physical and mental health
What is ki and why study it?
Ki is a concept in Eastern philosophy that can be thought of as the energy or life-force that fills the universe. It is a central principle in various forms of martial arts and healing practices. The power we often think we have – our usual ability, formed from our usual habits – is like the small visible segment of an iceberg, which floats above the surface of the water. We often think this is all there is. But hidden beneath the surface of the water is a much larger part of the iceberg. By studying universal principles, we can learn to activate our full potential.
