Ki Breathing - Koichi Tohei Sensei
1
Ki Breathing by Koichi Tohei Sensei
Koichi Tohei sensei wrote a new book, "Ki breathing (Ki no Kokyuho)" in Japanese on March 2005. This book has been best selling book in Japan. Many people have started to study Ki through this book. Many overseas members requested us to translate this book into English. Therefore, we decided to translate this book into English and upload it on the Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido weblog. I hope you will learn Ki principles more through this book. Thank you very much. Shinichi Tohei

Preface
I reach the age of eighty-five this year. I have been teaching Ki breathing all over the world beginning with Japan, U.S.A., Europe, Russia, Asia, Australia etc. If you do Ki breathing correctly, it will help you to overcome any kind of illness naturally. Most modern diseases are caused by lack of oxygen in the cell. If your cells lack oxygen, you may have cold hands and feet, headaches, stiff shoulders, rough and/or dry skin. In addition, you may experience problems with your tongue and nails or inflammation of the eyes. It is easier to get cancer, cerebrovascular disease and dementia if your cells are lacking oxygen. Therefore, it is important to bring fresh oxygen through every capillary vessel to maintain your health. Modern people live with a lot of stress and they become irritated or upset. This causes blood vessels to contract and makes it difficult to bring fresh oxygen throughout the body effectively. Bad posture will also constrict blood flow. This is a weakness in modern people. What kind of breathing exercise can we do to maintain our health? There are many breathing methods in this world, such as Tanden breathing,  Yogic breathing and so on. In some methods of breathing, exhale and inhale time are decided. In another method, you expand your lower abdomen when you inhale and hold in your lower abdomen when you exhale. These breathing methods cause you to inhale strongly or stop your breath intentionally, or put strength in your lower abdomen. These breathing methods make your capillary vessels to contract making it difficult to carry oxygen throughout your body. They are just practicing deep breaths, which only exchange air in your lungs temporarily. The breathing method that will carry fresh oxygen throughout your whole body is "Ki Breathing". Ki breathing methods come from an old Shinto breathing called
Misogi no Kokyuho 
 "Nagayo no den". (Misogi breathing) Based on the oneness of mind and body, I designed this breathing method to be whole body breathing and named it "Ki Breathing".
