A Zen Martial Art Training for Mind, Body & Spirit
Myoku combines beautifully martial arts movements with principles of Zen philosophy and quantum physics to offer a fundamental way of empowering you on a personal and spiritual level. Myoku is a way of life that develops grounding/centeredness, brings peacefulness, and raises your consciousness for self-realization. Welcome to a new paradigm of training mind-body.
A Zen physical mind-body training with meditation practices and breathing techniques for self-empowerment at all levels.
Myoku helps you grow in your consciousness, develops grounding/centeredness, and raises your vibration by following the 3 principles of Gravity, Fluidity and Chi. We practice movements from Kyokushin karate & Tai Chi, perform katas with the 5 elements, and meditate (sitting & standing) with specific breathing techniques.
Myoku offers workshops and a regular class – all of which work on the 3 principles in their own way. Myoku is open to everyone. Whether you have a background in martial arts or not, Myoku is a different experience of reality – so, just come with an open mind, a smile, and the desire to expand your reality!

Viviane’s motto: to know ourselves on the spiritual path is first and foremost to deconstruct what we take for granted and our beliefs to allow an expansion of our consciousness.
Everything that Viviane writes and does is to inspire and help others be connected to their true “Self.”“The Journey never ends,” says Viviane. “I started mine a long time ago, and I want to help others as I continue my own walk in the Bamboo Forest.” Viviane has published articles on meditation (Curejoy & SivanaEast) and novels about Zen and fantasy, available on Amazon.com.
Start your Journey
We live and think nowadays in a new paradigm. We cannot stay in a world of duality and competitiveness that destroys us; we can only move forward towards Oneness and expansion of the “Self.” As such, we need to be more grounded, centered in our gravity and in higher consciousness. So, let’s demystify martial arts and Zen to see that they are more accessible than we think; let’s use their core principles to bring everyone a better way of life.
