Marie Yagami is a Jiriki Seitai and Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher.
Despite being born in a yoga Ashram in Japan from yoga teacher parents, she hasn't always been herself a teacher, but actually have started her career as a Performance Costume Designer.
During her early 20s she was entangled in the fast-paced city life working in New York City and London. To cope with it all she reconnected with her childhood upbringing and started practicing Yoga and Jiriki regularly. Excited about the benefits that both disciplines were bringing her, she started to share them with friends and colleagues, and soon she realised that her life mission was to continue her father's work and to share the practice of Jiriki worldwide.
After completing a RYS 250hr Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training in London, she has deepened her knowledge of philosophy, anatomy, pranayama and meditation and have since applied these components into her Jiriki teaching.
The main objective of herJiriki classes is to guide students to reconnect to their bodies and to scan it to discover potential discomforts, imbalances, misalignments and tensions. By raising awareness on the powerful connection that ties together body and mind, students are invited to tap into the body's innate ability to heal independently if properly tended to.
Today, Marie continues to develop the Jiriki method alongside her father, and has become an ambassador for Jiriki outside Japan.
