Well, I practice what you would call Iwama style Aikido and we quite frequently do breathing excercises. He also has what he calls a "yoga" class, but I asked him about it one day and he says he just calls it that but is mainly ShinShin-Toitsu (SP?), which I think is a Japanese yoga.
The Japanese name for Ki Society style Aikido is called Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido or Aikido with Mind and Body Coordination. This name comes from Tempu Nakamura of Tempukai. The Tempukai member that was mentioned, H.E. Davey wrote a book titled Japanese Yoga. It sounds like the source of your exercises are either Ki Society or Tempukai.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
