Images of Japanese yoga, healing arts, martial arts, and fine arts are intermingled here,but they represent 

separate classes at our dojo. The Sennin Foundation Center works like a university for Japanese cultural arts, with Japanese yoga being the basic course, and martial arts, healing, and brush calligraphy functioning as optional electives. Classes for children blend Japanese yoga and martial arts.
