Kiyomi was born and raised in Japan, growing up as an athlete, and earned her BA in Tokyo and her MA in San Francisco. She began her corporate career in 2001, and Yoga became her refuge during a busy corporate life. With her strong desire to understand the healing capacity of this practice more in-depth, she completed her 500-hr teacher training at YogaWorks in 2007. In 2009, Kiyomi took a step toward pursuing her deepest desire to share this transformational practice of Yoga with others and has never looked back since.  


She continued her studies and completed the Yoga Therapy course from Loyola Marymount University, 220-hr Kundalini Yoga training, and thousands of hours of training with teachers in many different traditions. Kiyomi feels that Yoga is a gift for all and passionate about living, learning, and sharing this transformational practice.   


Kiyomi teaches breath-focused flow classes with pranayamas, kriyas, and meditation techniques from different traditions. She gives detailed attention to safe alignment respecting individual needs and uniqueness.


Kiyomi currently leads Teacher Trainings, workshops, and classes both in English and Japanese. She is dedicated to touching as many people's lives as possible with this practice to expand their potential to live their lives with joy and peace within.

"Kiyomi has been an essential influence on my yoga practice and journey.  She creates a calm, soothing atmosphere in which to learn and grow.  Whether in a jam packed class or private instruction, her attention to detail, quick adjustments, and gentle instructions are expertly delivered. I am grateful and humbled to say, she has expanded my perspective of yoga, its benefits both on and off the mat in my life, as well as... breath... the broader possibilities of the mind, body and spirit."
