Ever feel the “mid-morning slump” while at work? How about taking a few minutes at lunchtime to refresh yourself?
Destress and reenergize at JFLA during our 20-minute, easy-to-do yoga stretch session!
No need to change clothes or use a yoga mat; you will be seated in a chair receiving relaxing instruction from a bilingual (English and Japanese) instructor. Learn simple Japanese phrases during the instruction and stretch your mind as well as your body.
There will be two free sessions beginning at 12:30pm and 1:00pm. No reservation necessary, all are welcome.
Hikaru was born in Japan and is a native speaker of Japanese. She has been practicing yoga since 2008 and after years of studying yoga, she found Iyengar yoga. Iyengar yoga has changed her very inspiration for life and Hikaru had developed a deeper connection to yoga ever since then. She has been under the mentor of Lisa Walford and has had the opportunity to study twice with BKS Iyengar’s daughter, Geeta, in Pune, India. At the moment she is also receiving meditation training from Bhikkkhu Dhammaananda.
Grateful for her fortune to have learned from such outstanding teachers, she had eventually developed the aspiration to teach. Hikaru hopes to spread their teachings and knowledge as well as her own to future students.
