"True yoga is the condition of human beings living in complete harmony with nature - constantly changing, constantly balancing constantly searching for stability. Ultimately everything on this planet is led, unified, governed and guided by one and only one principle -​the law of Nature.”      Masahiro Oki

Masahiro Oki
Masahiro Oki (1921-1985) author,
teacher-healer-philosopher and
originator of Oki-Do, a Japanese
holistic form of yoga. Respected as
one of the most extra-ordinary yoga
teachers in the world, Masahiro Oki
spent years at Ghandi’s ashram.
He developed a unique, total health discipline of body, mind
and spirit, combining the
original essence of Indian
Yoga with Zen Buddhism
exercises, Shintoism
​practice, traditional
​Marshal Arts and Do-In.​

Oki-Do is quite different from Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Bikram being the more common forms of yoga practiced in the west. In Oki-Do one practices unique poses in order to realize the imbalances within and correct these imbalances through movement and breathing techniques whilst constantly redirecting consciousness to where it is needed.   
Regular classes correct postural distortions and improve ​core strength and flexibility as well as increasing vitality, motivation and the ability to more effectively manage ​stress.

Classes are structured by season,
​time of day and the needs of those attending. Each class maintains a particular focus eg:​​
