Does your body hurt from sitting at a desk working or studying Japanese all day? Well, I've got an idea for you — why not do something that not only improves your health, but also improves your Japanese skills? Like trying yoga classes in Japanese?
Even if your body doesn't hurt — lucky you! — perhaps you're tired of studying Japanese the traditional way with books and apps? Why not try spicing up your mundane Japanese learning routine with some activities that you can do in Japanese?
There are lots of high-quality yoga lessons available online these days, so you don't actually have to be in Japan to take Japanese yoga lessons. You don't even have to step outside of your house!
This series is a guide for Japanese learners who want to get started (or who have already started and would like some extra support) on their Japanese yoga journey. The articles explore what you can expect in Japanese-language yoga classes and go through a variety of vocabulary that will come in handy for Japanese learning yogis. Take the articles one step at a time, and you'll be able to focus on your actual footing instead of worrying about building a linguistic footing.
