Meet the Team

A visiting spa practitioner (Sanae-san) does a yoga pose outside near the pond garden

Sanae Koizumi

Sanae, who has been practicing yoga since 2004, become a RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher) practitioner in 2009 before signing on as a yoga instructor at a well-known hot yoga studio in Japan – where she provided classes for 50 to 90 members a day. She then became a trainer in western Japan, teaching courses for yoga instructors on anatomy, physiology and basic knowledge of yoga philosophy. She has since been following Indian yogis to deepen better understanding for traditional yoga and keep practice every day.

“Practicing yoga allows us to experience deep relaxation and heal ourselves. Experiencing beyond the practice helps us broaden our perspective.”
