Originally from Japan, Chigusa has been practicing yoga since 2000. She has been fortunate to study Iyengar yoga under the mentorship of Marla Apt, and the guidance of Lisa Walford and Dora Hasenbein for the last 5 years.
Having worked as a post production editor, yoga helped Chigusa to cope with a sedentary and high-stress work environment and helped her to develop physical strength and emotional balance.
She firmly believes that regular yoga practice can elevate our day to day life by releasing unnecessary tension and bringing more balance to body and mind.

Chigusa is dedicated to sharing the benefit of yoga and helping students to improve their practice.
