About zen yoga

Zen yoga is a form of yoga based on principles of a school of Chinese buddhism called chan, or in Japanese zen. In zen yoga, three particularly significant practices are applied, which represent a model of wholeness or a model of complete approach to life, namely: bringing the body into order, bringing the breath into order and bringing the mind into order. 

 

As a discipline of bringing the body, breath and mind into a balanced state, zen yoga uses a wide range of body positions, breathing exercises, diagnostics, corrective exercises, massage and meditation. It includes elements of hatha yoga, but also many Chinese Qigong exercises.
