Introduction of bilingual classes in Studio GOD!／Mika
- 恵比寿ヨガスタジオ studio GOD -
I am Mika from Studio GOD, the yoga studio in Ebisu (close by from both Shibuya and Daikanyama.)
How are you enjoying yoga life in Tokyo?
I wanted to write brief introductions about myself as well as the studio in the hope for this could be one of your future alternatives.
As a starter, let me introduce a little bit about myself.
I was born and raised in Ibaraki pref. (right above Chiba) up until high school, and then flied to Vancouver, Canada for University majored in computer design where I officially started my English studies. After 4 years of taking the best of the multicultural life in the city surrounded by the great nature, I started my career in Tokyo. Currently, I work at a US-based pharmaceutical company as well as teaching yoga as an instructor at studio GOD.
Looking back, my first yoga experience was at a hot yoga studio in Ebisu 10 years back and I fell into love with it so easily. I initially started taking yoga classes for weight control purpose, but after several months, I started to see some changes in my body. What was more interesting to me was the change in my mindset. Yoga always brought me with more stability, openness, and self-esteem after the practices. Eventually I understood the physical changes bring about mental improvements. Observation of the positive chain of repercussions to people around myself is something I enjoy the most about yoga practice. Well, this is the reason why I love yoga this much, and the biggest reason of teaching my kind of yoga which is based on Hatha as I enjoy practicing basics of how we focus on each part of body!
Well, it’s time to write about our studio!
