Izanagi and Izanami, are the two Japanese Shinto deities part of the Shinto Creation Myth, and they mean:

“He Who Invites” and “She Who Invites”.

A land of extraordinary depth, complexity and beauty - both natural and aesthetic - and a feast for all the senses.

We begin on a world heritage site, the top of the sacred mountain of Koyasan, the headquarters of Shinto Buddhism, and stay amidst the stunning Zen gardens of a present day monastery run by monks trained in the esoteric practices.

Our temple lodging is simple and Zen yet very comfortable. We will practice our Yoga daily and also take part in early morning Buddhist meditations and ceremonies where the priests and monks chant sutras. We will also share their traditional Shojin Ryori - the Buddhist vegetarian cuisine of the region and bath in the natural onsens.

We meet together as a group once again in Central Kyoto - a stunningly designed and ancient city, ever so rich in tastes and culture - and spend our last 2 nights in a traditional Japanese Ryokan.



Before and after our Yoga with Fabio, we will delight in all that this city has on offer and end with walking the famous Path of Philosophy, under the varying shades of pink of the flowering cherry blossoms...
