Risa is a strong individual who has loved to challenge herself, especially towards fitness and health. Being born and raised in Japan, she first moved to the U.S in 2013, where she had felt many struggles of stress, depression, confusion through culture shock, homesickness, and a feeling of identity loss. However, after trying different activities, she discovered Yoga. Through continued practices of taking different workshops of different Yoga variations and meditation, she was able to gain knowledge, harmony, and better understanding of herself. Yoga has changed the way that she sees the world and wishes to show people how to live peacefully with Yoga. Yoga is a tool that can help us relax, but also be used to heal. Risa became a teacher to create a safe and an enjoyable environment where everyone can feel welcome and become strong together.
