Centre for the Ways and Natural Healing Arts
A Brief History

About Sensei Yula
I have been practicing mindful living and healhy lifestyle since I was a child. Despite having university education in economics and political science I have choosen a more holistic way of life for both living and livelihood.
For the last 40 plus years I have been dedicated to advancing my knowledge and skills in both the practical and philosophical aspects of oriental medicine, yoga, and oriental martial arts.
With 36 years of clinical experience practicing oriental medicine, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, shiatsu, and therapeutic chi kung, and many decades of teaching chi kung, zen shiatsu, acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, and Karate-Do, I was led to create my own systems of internal martial arts and healing art. I have named the former Zenki-Do System of Internal Martial Arts and the latter Zen Kiatsu-Tao TCM. Both have become a part of my way of life.
I have also co-authored with my beloved Spiritual friend Becca Mukti, two books, The Eight Pillars of the Heaven (Volume One and Volume Two) and Chi Kung-Yoga Energetics, without her none of these books could have been written leave alone published. There are three more books in the works that Becca and I initiated together before her departure that I am continuing to work on, Zenki-Do: The Art of True Warriorship, Zen Kiatsu-Tao TCM, and The Art of Healthy Living.
Thank you for reading and be well.
