Daizan Skinner (yoga)

Daizan Skinner

Julian Daizan Skinner is the first Englishman to go to Japan and become a Roshi or Zen Master in the rigorous Rinzai tradition of Zen. About twenty years ago, he gave up a promising career as a scientist in the pharmaceuticals industry, sold his house, gave all the money away and entered a Zen monastery.

He has studied yoga with many teachers, including travelling to India to study with 90 year-old Sri Pattabhi Jois. He has synthesised the most useful elements of what he learned, both within and outside Zen monasteries, into Zenways yoga – a practice that fosters the Zen experience and develops wellbeing, focus, awareness and suppleness on all levels.

He has also studied yoga in China and Japan. This means that he is able to bring diversity to your yoga and is able to make available a style that will bring you success when you teach and at the same time will allow you to develop as a person and as a teacher. His knowledge and training in Zen means you can take things just as deep as you like spiritually and know you’re in safe hands. Daizan Roshi has ten years of experience in teaching yoga with the Yoga Alliance and over ten years of teaching meditation to Zen students.

Yoga teacher training at Zenways

We believe becoming a yoga teacher is about your personal journey, understanding and inner confidence. Rather than orientating our course around "our" way, we instead orientate ourselves around your path. On our yoga teacher training course we focus on giving you the principles and techniques to equip you for a lifetime of exploring, developing and teaching.
