YUMIKO  
Chanting Singer

Yumiko studied chanting under Phobe, Gina Sala and Sachiyo Munechika. She was born in Aichi Prefecture and grew up in Tokyo.

When she was in the USA about 10 years ago, surrounded by friends who were there to make their dreams come true, she started asking herself what she really wanted to do. She decided to come back to Japan and take vocal lessons. A few years later, she started singing at bars abound Tokyo. She stopped singing 6 years ago because she felt that she had reached the limit of her musical talent. She started searching for another direction, and this brought her to aromatherapy, aura soma and yoga.

Through practicing yoga she learned that happiness is inside her mind and that only the mind can determine happiness, not her surroundings. Through regular yoga practice, she was able to recover from an eating disorder in 6 months.

Yumiko wants to teach people through yoga that we are the master of our mind, and that we have the power to decide to be happy.

Meditation and Pranayama

Mimi Horiuchi has studied yoga in India, Tokyo, the Bahamas, and the United States.

Mimi studied yoga under Kathyee Lee. Kathyee Lee is a yoga master Mimi searched out for teacher training. When she finally arrived for her training, Mimi was told that Kathyee was going through stage 4 colon cancer, and that she was only teaching when she was felt healthy enough. Kathyee was going through chemo-therapy at the time and had lost her hair through the treatment. This all came as a shock to Mimi who had saved up for years to learn yoga from Kathyee.

Even though Kathyee was going through chemo-therapy, she was still able to teach when she could. Using her beautiful voice and enthusiasm for her students, Kathyee was able to show Mimi her passion for yoga and care for her students that still remains with her. Even though she was still learning English, Kathyee gave Mimi the opportunity to teach her Sivananda yoga to a class. One of Mimi’s most enthusiastic students was Kathyee herself, even while fighting her colon cancer. After receiving classes from Mimi and her self-treatment for more than 8 months, Kathyee even began growing hair back! Kathyee is still with us today and continues teaching yoga in San Diego, California.

Mimi’s first client had a gynaecological disorder and sciatica. She went through surgery and she couldn’t walk and drive sometimes due to pain. She started yoga training with Mimi. After receiving classes from Mimi for more than one year, she was able to walk and drive and she got pregnant finally! Her new baby will arrive in April this year. Two other sterile women also got pregnant after one year of yoga treatment.

Mimi believes that Yoga can effectively release the stagnation in the body and mind. She would like to strongly support people in overcoming their issues and achieving their goals. This is why she started to teach Yoga.

Mimi Horiuchi is a Tokyo Olympic 2016 Supporter.
