Shinshin-Toitsu-Do | Japanese Yoga

Shinshin-toitsu-do was founded by Nakamura Tempu (1876 – 1968). The practice is also known “Japanese Yoga,” and is a combination of Raja Yoga and Karma Yoga which include meditation exercises.

The goal of Shinshin-toitsu-do is supplying a method of “unifying body and mind” to realize our true nature as human beings.
