What you'll do

Discover the world of Japanese Zen culture with Yuki Shiina, the founder of Zen Kokyū. Through this experience, you will learn how to improve your posture and perform Zen Breathing for better health.

Having suffered from numerous physical and mental ailments for over 15 yrs, Yuki turned to traditional breathing techniques to find relief from her pains. Specifically, she studied a breathing method created by Zen master Hakuin Ekaku in the 18th century, and credits him with saving her life. Zen Kokyū is based on this traditional method, and encourages us to be more mindful of our breathing. It can also be used as a tool to improve our health and wellbeing.

With Yuki's guidance, you will begin your journey towards understanding your posture and the techniques behind Zen Breathing. You will work on your posture, and learn the abdominal breathing method. At the end of the class Yuki will also provide each person with a private 5 mins session, and offer them individual advice about their technique.

After completing this lesson, you will take away breathing techniques that can be easily practised and maintained by yourself, from the comfort of your own home. These will help strengthen your immune system, ease anxiety, and increase relaxation levels.

Don't miss this opportunity to meet the founder of Zen Kokyū, and receive personalised advice from the expert of breathing technique.

Yuki is an absolutely lovely person which made the whole experience an absolute pleasure and great learning experience. The way she explains the process makes it seem so obvious and yet we ignore how heavily posture & breathing both impact our lives. Literally 'A breath of fresh air'. Thank you Yuki for hosting us and we hope to be back soon :-)
