How Asahi has changed these people's lives

Martin Uhlrich,  Germany

I felt clumsy my whole life, until I started to practice Asahi at age 70. Now, through Asahi practice, I have better posture, more strength, much better balance, and a new, relaxed way of moving! 

Maria Arka,  Greece

I fell in 2020 injuring my left shoulder, fracturing some ribs and twisting my ankle.  I was in a lot of pain, but ten days after the accident I returned to our Asahi group with my arm in a sling and did just as much as I could without aggravating the injuries. Asahi’s pumping movements helped to speed the healing. I could see improvement with every Asahi session. The physical therapist said my recovery was quite dramatic. Only three months later my husband and I became Greece’s first Asahi instructors!

Nikos Papavasiliou, Greece

My wife started coming to Asahi practices and talked me into trying it. Now we come together. I was surprised at how comprehensive a practice it is. My balance has improved so much that standing on one leg is possible again and moving in general is much easier.  Asahi makes me feel so much stronger! As a teacher, I can show other men how easily Asahi moves them to better health!
