St. Louis Ki Society
The art of Japanese yoga can be learned at the St. Louis Ki Society. Also known as Ki Development and Shin-Shin Toitsu Do, Japanese yoga was developed by Tempu Nakamura and incorporates martial arts movements with motions of Zen and Shinto. Known as a practice where "the mind leads the body," practitioners of Japanese yoga believe it strengthens posture and physicality, increases concentration and promotes deep relaxation and a sense of calm. Classes are only offered a few times a week. The Ki Society also teaches Akido, hosts special programs and features relaxation programs for seniors.
The main location or "dojo" is at 6006 Pershing Ave., St. Louis MO 63112 (314) 726-5070. A micro location can be found at the Riverchase Recreation Center in Fenton, MO. Call (636) 343-0067 for details.
