This class is concentrated in gentle and restorative yoga.

The name Aikido is composed of three Japanese words: ai, meaning harmony; ki, spirit or energy; and do, the path,Nidai Doshu, Yokota Sensei, Midwest Aikido Center system or way. Aikido is the way of the spirit of harmony. Martial arts are studied for self-defense and self-improvement but Aikido is different from other martial arts in that practitioners seek to defend themselves without causing injury to their attackers.

Kishindo / Ki & Heart Meditation:
Combining the martial aspects of Aikido and Tai Chi, with the spiritual practices of buddhism, these classes will lighten your heart and help guide you as you progress in your life.

Sumi-e Ink Painting:
Sumi-e is ink painting. In the Japanese language, “sumi” means ink and “e” means painting. Ink is painted on washi (rice paper) using brushes, and sometimes subtle watercolour is added. Ink painting was brought from China to Japan six hundred years ago by Zen Buddhist monks, and Japanese ink painting traditions and innovations then developed. In North America, sumi-e is practiced by artists from many cultural backgrounds, and sumi-e continues to grow as a creative art form.

Nembutsu Chanting:
The ancient practice of Nembutsu involves mindfulness of Amida Buddha, and the recitation of the sacred name, Namu Amida Butsu, which means “I follow/return back to Amida Buddha.” Through the practice of Nembutsu, people share and derive spiritual benefit for themselves and others.(
