I was born to Japanese and white English ancestry.


My childhood years were spent in Japan, and my secondary and higher education in the UK. 


After graduating in Chinese Studies at Oxford, I spent time in Taiwan and Japan, studying movement and meditative traditions whilst working as a forest guide. 

I work using a combination of techniques I have learned through 9+ years of devoted practice in yoga, daoyin, and meditation.
