Let’s talk with other members and get to know each other! FREE for all members!

It’s always fun to know a new culture and new friends from different countries.

Let’s talk about your culture in English.
You can talk about your family traditions or everyday routines or anything that you want to share with other members.
Perhaps you can find yourself special and unique!

This event is FREE for the members (Shiro-Obi & Kuro-Obi members).
I’ll prepare a topic each time to talk about.

Just siting down on the couch and listening to others’ stories are welcome, feel free to join the talk.

Kuro-Obi members!! Junko is hosting FREE weekly online yoga lessons every Friday at 10am(EDT) on ZOOM🧘‍♀️


Junko is a 200RYT certified yoga instructor and have been teaching over 600 students online and in person.
Feel free to join my yoga lessons conducted in Japanese and English with Japanese yoginis.
You can take the lesson wherever you want, whatever you want to wear, whichever your camera is on or off.
Please make yourself comfortable to take the lesson.

It will be great to experience the atmosphere of Japan, as well as an opportunity to connect with your inner self and refresh through yoga practice.

If you can’t make this lesson, consider a private lesson!



Yoga will be a game changer for your life!

If you’re not comfortable with a group lesson or you’re having particular problems on your body, try this private yoga session with Junko.

It’s completely customizable so the menu will meet what you need on that day.
Let Junko know what you’re struggling with, and what kind of feeling you have before the lesson so she can prepare the practice menu only for you.
