As for English, I can help you wtih your academic Enlgish as well as conversational English. I'm experienced in teaching languages to adults as well as children. I also have High Distinction in Japanese Linguisitcs as part of my Japanese Studies major so I can help you with Japanaese grammar too if you're studying Japanese.

ヨガに関しては、Yoga Australiaのメンバーで、合計500時間以上のトレーニングを受けてきました。お子様、そして妊娠中の方や、出産後の方に特化したクラスを主に教えています。6週間からティーネージャーまで幅広い年齢を教えてきた経験があります。元々、ハタヨガを中心にトレーニングしてきましたが、Insight Yoga Instituteのサラパワーズ先生と定期的に陰ヨガそしてマインドフルネスのトレーニング、リトリートに参加してきました。私のクラスはゆっくり落ち着いていて、マインドフルネスを主に取り入れています。クラスを通して心が安らぎ、リラックスして頂けると思います。
