Emphasizing soft stretching and meditation exercises, the
ultimate goal of Japanese yoga-known as Shin-shin-toitsu-do-is
enhanced mind/body integration, calmness, and willpower for a
healthier and fuller life. Developed by Dr. Tempu Nakamura in the
early 1900s from Indian yoga, Eastern arts, and Western medicine
and psychotherapy, Japanese yoga offers a new approach to
experienced yoga students and a natural methodology that newcomers
will find easy to learn.
After a brief history of Shin-shin-toitsu-do, H. E. Davey
presents Dr. Nakamura's Four Basic Principles to Unify Mind and
Body. These principles relate the meditative experience to the
movement of everyday living and thus make it a "dynamic"
meditation. Each of the Four Basic Principles is illustrated with
step-by-step explanations of practical experiments.
Readers are then introduced to different forms of seated and
moving meditation, health exercises, and self-healing arts. All
these are linked back to the Four Basic Principles and can enhance
performance in art, music, business, sports, and other activities.
Readers learn to use Japanese yoga techniques throughout the day,
without having to sit on the floor or seek out a quiet space.
Included at the end of the book are simple but effective
stretching exercises, information about ongoing practice, and a
glossary and reference section. Amply illustrated and cogently
presented, "Japanese Yoga" belongs in every yoga section and on
every mind/body/spirit reading list.
H. E. Davey is Director of the Sennin Foundation Center for
Japanese Cultural Arts in the San Francisco Bay Area and has
studied directly with disciples of Nakamura Sensei.
