As a student, I trained under the Master Masahiro Oki at Oki Yoga studio in Mishima, Shizuoka.
After graduating from the university, I also studied with the Master Takahiko Otsuki.
When I turned 42 years old, I was given a diagnosis of cancer.
So I started to train rigorously under the Master Taido Makiuchi of Atami at the fasting retreat for 3 years.
Fasting and Yoga improved my physical condition and I was finally able to take back my health and my true self.
Based on my experiences, I established "Refreshing Forest" in 2006.
Ever since I opened the retreat center, I have been supporting and coaching people who want to better their lives.
