Do-In is Japanese for: exercise. Or more precisely: "stretching and moving the limbs to let the energy flow through the meridians." It is an age-old form of movement, originally from China, but also influenced by Japanese shiatsu. In Zen traditions, Do-In is also used as preparation for meditation.
Do-In encourages to really feel your body and to take responsibility for it. Do-In lessons and workshops are therefore suitable for all ages and all bodies.
Do-In exercises are closely related to healing therapies such as shiatsu and acupuncture. The movements and massages affect the energy channels (meridians). As a result, circulation improves and muscles relax, so that waste products are better removed. In addition the mind calms, by paying attention to breathing: body and mind become one again.
