Saburo Ishii President & CEO, Family Yoga

It is now forty years since Saburo Ishii first learned yoga in Tokyo and thirty-five years since the founding of the Family Yoga School.
Now, more than ever, with the stress and strain of daily life, we need methods to use our bodies more effectively and with greater ease, thus relieving physical and mental tension.

  • The unique tension-releasing movements developed by this school are the focus of lessons that are ideal both for beginners and seasoned practitioners.
  • The lessons incorporate the corrective exercises, breathing exercises and strengthening exercises found in the OKI-DO YOGA approach.
  • ´╝┤here are lectures on the popular cereal-based vegetarian diet as well as training in konnyaku plasters, etc., not to mention training in seikatsu yoga (yoga for daily life).
Trial Lesson

The Instructor Training Course is recommended for persons who have experienced yoga's positive effects first hand. Here's a chance to make life more pleasant and interesting while conveying the positive effects of yoga to your family and friends, such as correcting physical defects or dealing with lower back pain, stiff shoulders or knee pains, etc.
Students in this program obtain a broad and deep knowledge of yoga while implementing their knowledge to become full-fledged yoga instructors.


SOTAI Therapy draws on comfortable, strain-free movements to relieve lower back pain, shoulder stiffness, knee pains, etc.
This is an essential skill for all persons engaged in yoga instruction.


Yoga emphasizes balance. The yoga fasting method (half-fast) uses reduced food intake to help participants return to normal sensation.
If your body feels lighter, warmer, and full of vigor, that's the sign of a healthy body.


Family Yoga prizes a warm, homelike atmosphere.
