|Heeki stepped into the world of yoga 12 years ago when she was studying at UCLA. Since then her attachment to yoga has brought her to explore its path in India and to study many types of yoga & spiritual practices including Ashtanga Yoga, Sivananda Yoga, and Reiki. In 2007, as an extension of her spiritual journey, she opened one of the most influential yoga studios, YOGABREEZE in Fukuoka, Japan. In the same year, she finally met her gurus who totally changed her course of life - the creators of Jivamukti Yoga, Sharon Gannon & David Life - who emphasise enlightenment through compassion. She was so inspired by the powerful and practical method of Jivamukti Yoga that she became the first Jivamukti Certified Teacher in Japan in 2008. With her Gurus' blessings, she was empowered to convey the method nationwide and internationally, and serves as a spokesman of Jivamukti Yoga in Japan. She assisted Sharon Gannon & David Life at the 2009 Asia Yoga Conference in Hong Kong and hosted them for the Jivamukti Japan Tour in both 2009 & 2010. She was their translator for the 2010 Jivamukti tour and 300-hour TT in New York. Currently she is working on the translation of Sharon Gannon's book, 'Yoga and Vegetarianism', and is actively teaching Jivamukti Yoga in Korea and Japan. Off the mat, Heeki launched the 'Happy Animal Project' in 2009 as inspired by her Gurus' spiritual activism.
