About Me

NAOMI, was born in Japan and moved to Hanoi where she has been learning for the lacquer painting at Vietnam University of Fine Arts since 2000. She started practicing yoga in 2012 while working at the Urban Railway construction project office in Hanoi Vietnam. In 2013, she slowly discovered Ashtanga yoga and often went abroad to Asian countries such as Japan and India to practice it. After leaving her job, she started teaching at Zenith Yoga Hanoi and OM Hanoi since 2014. She is 500RYT certified.

She is a home practitioner of Ashtanga Yoga.

She needed to go abroad to located outside of Vietnam for practicing Ashtanga yoga. Because there were no Ashtanga teachers around her. In 2015, she attended the Ashtanga yoga Retreat and Mysore class taught by Tarik Thami in Ubud Bali who is teaching at Mysore Tokyo in Japan. Soon after that she has begun to focus practice self practice in Hanoi and  practiced at Mysore Tokyo when back to Japan temporarily. In 2016, she first visited the source of Ashtanga yoga, KPJAYI (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute), Mysore, India, and she practiced under R. Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Jois, the grandson and daughter of Guruji there.  After return to Hanoi from India, she has continuing self-practice until now. She attended Mysore classes and work shops taught by Petri Räisänen, Dylan Bernstein… and many yoga friends! She continued to visit India annually to study at KPJAYI with R. Sharath Jois who granted her Level 1 Authorization.

She is interested in chanting, Sanskrit, and yoga philosophy, which she continues to practice and study in her daily life.

Teaching Studio: Zenith Yoga Hanoi, OM Yoga Studio & Vegetarian café. (I’m stopping to teach yoga class at both studios for doing morning Mysore class.)
