Seiri Undo: Realignment exercises of karate

THE SECRET DOJO: DAY 3 – Body realignment exercises

This short set of seiri-undo exercises is perfect for a post workout warm-down.

When training at the Bugeikan in Okinawa there is a distinct emphasis on nurturing good health. In shiatsu too we assess an individual’s current level of wellbeing by observing their natural suppleness in the muscles and joints.

Seiri undo (lit ‘realignment exercises’), are a simple and powerful way to release low back pain and muscle tension. The five different stretches are performed fluidly with the breath and repeated 30 times in quick succession.

It’s perfect for concluding your home practise and as a quick means of releasing tightness in the body at the end of a day’s work.
