The Sanchin institute

The Sanchin Institute was founded by two individuals seeking a more meaningful model of teaching martial arts, yoga and meditation. We chose the concept of Sanchin as our namesake to accurately portray the work we choose to do, namely, helping individuals master the three battles all humans face daily: the battle of mind, the battle of body and the battle of spirit. We believe that everyone is searching for a way to harmonize these aspects of being to create a more balanced life. Our physical challenge is balancing our health. Our mental challenge is achieving concentration and control. Our emotional challenge is integrating our spirit to create a meaningful life.

Yoga, martial arts and mediation are the tools we use to work this balance. Each provides a physical practice with strong components of mental discipline and spiritual integration. They are life long pursuits which can, for those with a dedicated mindset, provide lasting benefits regardless of age. We, ourselves, have seen the benefits in our own personal lives, and the lives of the many students we have engaged.  As teachers, we are actively seeking  dedicated students who are looking for long-term solutions to improving and integrating their mental, physical and spiritual lives. 

Our program is designed for mature students who are looking to further their personal development. Every teacher on staff is of a certain age, and has the relevant life experience to integrate the teachings in a meaningful way.  We all walk our talk, and have found ways to put the teachings to work. This is the practice we wish to share with you.

The Institute caters to individuals who are looking for more than surface solutions and a surface practice. The Sanchin Institute is not a place of casual learning,  for “drop-in” classes or a space for the curious examination of the latest fad.  We have all put in the time and discipline to reach for the highest level of personal achievement. We will expect nothing less from you. In return, you can trust that we will teach you a carefully crafted and executed skill set to help you better manage your personal and professional lives.

  We believe that relationship must develop and that mastery is a process, not a goal. You will find no flowery language or esoteric promises in our house, but rather a focused, practical style that seeks focused, practical results. But these very results require time and a personal dedication to a “do”, or the “Way”. 

This is why we practice. This is what we practice. This is Sanchin.
