I apply an intuitive and caring approach to my practice, drawing from all my training and experience with the aim to effectively support each individual client and student to feel their best – at one with themselves and flowing with life.
Junko has been teaching Okido Yoga since 2011 after experiencing its benefits through a period of ill health and completing a 4-year training. Her aim as a teacher is the same as her aim as a holistic health therapist: to support people in feeling their best, at one with themselves and flowing with Life.
"Through attending my classes, I would like people to connect with their inner peace and joy, their Life Force, and gain the many physical and mental health benefits that come with this unification.”
With correct alignment of posture, breath and movement, it is possible to deepen into the moment and enjoy the benefits of yoga no matter how stiff one feels! The class will include an extensive warm-up to loosen and release tension. A central focus will be on respecting the physical body’s limits.
The teaching is primarily inspired by Okido Yoga, a Japanese school of yoga. As well as classical asanas, it includes corrective exercises to address physical distortions, and strengthening exercises to encourage a strong 'hara' (centre of gravity) which all work to deepen our connection with our whole being.
