In an interview with Aikido Today, Hikitsuchi Sensei mentions these six stages of Shinji, or "warm-up exercises for spiritual purification", that O-Sensei did before every class:
Misogi
Furutama
Torifune
Otakebi
Omusubi
Okorobi

I'm wondering if anyone can elaborate on each or any of these stages. Misogi exercises are fairly common, and I have heard of Furutama (the same as Funo koge??), but am not all familiar with the others.
