JIYO is not just a name, it's a philosophy

The word JIYO is a Japanese/Chinese Buddhist term that, when translated, means "to use yourself." This simple yet profound phrase is significant in JIYO's approach to movement and life.


In Buddhism

the concept of 'Ji' or 'self' is closely linked to the idea of self-awareness and mindfulness. By understanding and being in harmony with oneself, one can find true freedom and liberation. This is where the second part of the word, "Yo," comes in. "Yo" means "to use," and when combined with "Ji," it encourages us to use ourselves to our full potential.

At JIYO, we strive to inspire people to move, to experience the freedom and joy of movement, to see possibilities instead of limitations, and to use themselves to their full potential. It's not just about the physical movement, but also the mental and spiritual side of it.



we believe in the power of movement to create this kind of freedom and self-awareness. Our core philosophy is "Freedom in Motion," which is about constantly seeing possibilities instead of limitations. With this mindset, we strive to find possibilities in all kinds of movement, whether it's parkour, freerunning, breakdancing or even everyday life.

We believe that by embracing the philosophy of JIYO, we can not only improve our physical abilities, but also our mental and spiritual wellbeing. It's about finding joy in movement and using ourselves to our full potential, both physically and mentally.

It's about finding joy, freedom and liberation in movement.
