This method will effectively encourage the flow of vital energy and blood by stretching
slowly and politely.

You can reexamine the Japanese mind and make you feel fine of mind
and body through this exercise.

Miori Inata graduated from the Fine Arts University in Japan, and worked there as a Fine Arts teacher. In 1991, she moved to New York and lived there for the next seventeen years. Living in New York, she was exposed to the essence of art in the sheer abundance and variety all around her which awakened her as an artist.

She witnessed the terrorism of the World Trade Center from her apartment window on September 11, 2001. It made her think deeply which direction human beings should go, which path the Gods around the world would direct us. She wanted to stand in the places considered the place of prayer to understand. She visited the holy places in the world, continuing to take photographs of each place to see if she could find any answers.

Then she went to the Ise Shrine of Japan, and here she realized that human beings have been supported by nature itself, and the deep reverence for nature brought a quiet feeling of deep understanding, of a sense of harmony and peace. She has been taking up the photographing of the Ise Shrine as her lifework since then. (Miori Inata)
