Shinshin-tōitsu-dō (心身統一道 lit. way of mind and body unification) was founded by Nakamura Tempu and is also known as Japanese Yoga. It is a study of the principles of nature and how they can be refined to help us realize the truths of nature and our full potentials.
Nakamura Tempu created his Japanese Yoga from a variation of Raja Yoga and Karma Yoga, with an emphasis on the latter, which he learned from his Indian teacher Kaliapa (also spelled Cariapa and Kariappa), who took him to Gorkhe, in eastern Nepal.

|danko-ryoku (断行力)||the power of determination||willpower for resolute and decisive action|
|sei-ryoku (精力)||the power of vitality||energy or life power for endurance and perseverance|
|nō-ryoku (能力)||the power of ability||the capacity of wide ranging ability and dexterous action|
