The Essence of Oki-do
Oki-do yoga is to be natural in body, mind-heart and lifestyle as the basis of health, happiness and peace. The natural state of our human mind (Buddha nature) is gratitude, repentance, humility and service, all equalling love, all unconditional. When we focus on a holistic study of yoga we can connect with self and nature & develop these.
Dr. Masahiro Oki founded the International Oki-do Yoga Institute in Mishima, Japan in 1967.
All beings have the potential to live in peace. Peace comes when we truly appreciate that we are enabled to live because of the efforts of all beings. We all have a tiny seed of gratitude in our hearts. Yoga can help us to find this seed and encourage it to grow, so we feel a deeper appreciation for all life.
