Yoga in Japan

ヨガ

Yoga has been enjoying a decades-long boom in Japan with classes offered in most large and small cities throughout the country.

Especially popular with women, Yoga appeals to people who want to keep in shape without the sweat and pain of jogging or more vigorous workout routines.

I was first introduced to Yoga in Kyoto and became a student of the legendary Kashinath sensei in his studio near Sanjo, which later moved to a venue near Kiyomizudera Temple. From there I visited the Sivananda ashram in Rishikesh on the banks of the Ganges in northern India, a truly wonderful experience.

I have not had much luck finding a good school here in Nagoya but continue to practice, whenever I can.
