Virtual Mindfullness Meditation

Hello Everyone,

In these trying times of self-isolation, beginning Saturday morning, March 21, I have decided to offer a virtual gathering of the ASF Sangha to allow us to continue to remain in social contact; to meditate together while maintaining physical distancing. I’ve included a link here,,to get you into the group through Zoom.

This may very well become a permanent part our collaborative meditation experience after we are once again able to safely be in each other’s physical presence. The gathering time will remain the same, every Saturday morning, 8:30AM – 9:30AM.

Hitohira Saito

Hitohira Saito Sensei, began his Aikido education at the tender age of seven under the direct tutelage of the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba. He continued this training under O'Sensei until the master's demise in 1969, at which time he automatically continued his learning under O'Sensei's chief disciple, his own father, Morihiro Saito, 9th dan.

Based from my inquiry and observation of the classes before joining, as well as my first-hand experience with Sensei Stephanie Yap and the sempai (higher belters), I can attest that they really know their craft. Being in aikido class for me is a therapy. It de-stresses and helps me cope with depression caused by the struggles of my personal life and my stressful work.
