How to find a deeper balance through relationpoints and apply this in asana and in movements in Oki-Yoga-style.

In this weekend-seminar senior Oki-Yoga teacher Fernando Montoto will guide you to develop inner awareness and create balance through various Oki-Yoga methods. This will help you in your daily life, but it will also help you to deepen your Yoga-practice.

During the workshop, we will study and practice Kanrenbui, an ancient technique from Japan, that uses relationpoints in the physical body, to create balance in body and mind.
We will study many different Kanrenbui points to improve the performance of asana’s. You will feel the effect of the relationpoints and will apply this in asana, and other yoga-movements. So also specific Oki-Yoga methods like strengthening-exercise will be taught.
Using the relationpoints helps to unblock the flow of Ki (internal energy), and to feel the body and mind as a whole. So naturally you can build up the energy in the Tanden, the centre of strength in the lower abdomen. It will create internal comfortability and liveliness.
Fernando has made a deep study of this technique, learning this in the Mishima dojo and treating many clients in different parts of the world. With Kanrenbui, we learn that when a person has a pain, postural imbalance or limitations in physical movement, we can unblock the flow of ki (internal energy), by pressing certain vital points.
This unblocking improves the physical state and state of the organs, allowing for deeper breath and increasing physical flexibility that, in turn, is related to mental flexibility.
