Body training doesn't guarantee strong lungs. In fact, if you’re not breathing enough, you are limiting your lung power.
What many people don't realize is that everyday breathing isn't enough to keep oxygen flowing through the body at peak levels to strengthen your lungs.
Sure, some types of exercise can also strengthen the muscles of the neck and chest, but if you’re not breathing enough, you might never allow your lungs to function to full capacity. If you stick with the current way, you may risk putting all your effort with little results for your lungs.
If you don’t challenge the lungs intentionally, where will you be 6 months from now? If you lose your health, what would happen to your family? Like the rest of our body, our lungs need daily care and attention.
So, do you want to continue neglecting your breathing in your training? Or do you want to get access to the power of breathing to strengthen your diaphragm, make your lungs efficient, and boost...
Have you ever thought about how you would look and feel like after 10 or 20 years?
If you’re someone who wants to enjoy a long-lasting career in the second stage of your life, please watch this video because you are going to find a trick that you might not try before.
Most people tend to be just fearful about aging, and not having their ideal self-image in place as they get older. When they start to notice their declining health, they think they are getting old.
“You can be as old as you feel.”
Scientists say that finding your ‘subjective age’ may be essential for understanding the reasons that some people appear to flourish as they age – while others fade.
That’s why I made this video.
I wonder how you feel about aging.
In my thirties, I felt a little fearful and uneasy about how I'm going to look like in forties and fifties.
What helped me greatly to overcome those fears was the existence of great mentors, one of which is Master Kozo Nishino, who is still demonstrating incredible youthful power even at the age of 93.
I desire to become a good role model, like my mentor, and show young people that they can enjoy life with much deeper maturity and higher energy even as we grow old.
Wouldn't you like to be on that journey with me?
I had stomach flu for the first time in nearly 15 years.
I practice breathing exercises every day, and that has helped me avoid catching a bad cold or flu in the cold winter season.
But this time, it was different. We dined out last Friday, and something must be wrong there.
So, I went to see a doctor. She reassured me that it was just stomach flu. I felt relieved and slept like a baby for two full days.
Health comes first above everything else. The lesson I learned was this.
When I returned to a breathing class yesterday, I felt that my energy had been purified and strengthened because of this experience.
If you are having some tough times, you might want to be more kind to yourself and think of a good lesson you'll learn from it.
I wish you the very...
Are you getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night?
In this video, I talked about a quick tip to calm down your mind before sleep.
There are only three steps to follow: 1. Write 2. Deposit, and 3. Be grateful.
Just like most of you, I'm chasing my time to get things done before bedtime. So I needed to make it quick and easy. These steps only take 3 minutes, and it is working so well!
Previous research shows that writing helps to lessen our anxiety and even helps to sleep better. A study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology also suggests writing in a journal for five minutes before bed. Another research found that writing to-do lists, rather than writing about completed tasks, helped people fall asleep faster.
So rather than writing a complete sentence or journaling what you've done on that day, writing "a few trigger keywords" that remind you of the to-do items or your concerns helps you feel at ease. It will lessen any tension in your brain and...
Yesterday was my 57th birthday.
Why do we want to celebrate our birthdays?
In my short video, I talked about a valuable lesson I learned from my breathing teacher, Kozo Nishino.
Through the breath I take on my birthday, I feel so grateful for everything everyone around me.
I want to thank my family for their love, and thank you for your friendship.
On your next birthday, please remember to celebrate the first breath you took on this planet.
Wishing you and your family a Merry Holiday!
One question I often been asked from the beginners of our breathing class is, “Do I have energy?” This always surprises me.
In this video, I shared three points that still fascinate me based on my 30-year experience of exchanging energy with over a thousand students in the breathing class.
Have you ever had an experience that one word from someone completely changed the way you look at things in the world?
In this video, I talked about the one truth I've learned from my 93-year-old breathing teacher.
Whenever I feel I'm stuck, I always come back to this teaching.
In this video, I talked about how breathing changed my life.
I healed my allergy with breathing, but what’s more important is that I learned how to access my "inner energy" by changing my breath.
By practicing simple daily things like breathing, we can maintain our mobility in our later stage in life, doing whatever we want or traveling anywhere you like. And protect our dignity.
