The highly individual system of Japanese teacher-healer-philosopher Masahiro Oki. Oki Yoga is a unique blend of traditional Indian hatha yoga with Zen meditation, dancing, physical games, martial arts, and chanting. The training method emphasizes balance between opposites: tension and relaxation, heat and cold, stillness and movement. Oki's system of shusei taiso or corrective exercise through yoga postures stemmed from his detailed observations of the sleeping postures of students. He claims that during sleep people take postures that attempt to correct their physical imbalance.
The headquarters of the Oki system is The International Oki Yoga Institute in Mishima, Japan; there is another full-time center in Shimoda, on the Izu peninsula. There are over 250 centers throughout Japan, and others scattered around the world in North and South America, Europe, and Australia.
