About Sensei Yula 



I am Sensei Yula

B.A, D.TCM, A long time teacher and practitioner of Oriental Healing arts, yoga and Oriental Martial Arts. 

Compassion is my Mantra, Love, Peace and Forgiveness to include all and exclude non is my Ultimate Message to the world.

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 hollestic way of life for both living and livelyhood.

For the last 40 plus years I have been dedicated to advancing my knowledge and skills of 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, 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 Ststem of Internal Martial Arts and the latter Zen Kiatsu-Tao TCM or Healing Chi Kung. which both became a part of my way of life. 

I have also coauthored with my beloved ex wife Becca Mukti two books; The Eight Pillars of the Heaven (Volume One and Volume Two) and Chi Kung-Yoga Energetics volume one and two that without her non of these books could have been writen leave alon being published. There are three more books in the works that Becca and I initiated together before her departure that just about to be published which include Zenki-Do: The Art of True worriorship , Zen Kiatsu-Tao TCM and The Art of Healthy Living (AHL).

In my spare time I enjoy writing poetry and songs, and sing while I am alone and some times I sing in public as well.

Thank you for reading and be well.
