Guest Yoga Teacher Harumi Maejima
C-IAYT, E-500 RYT, YACEP
Harumi Maejima is owner and director of HarumiYoga+ Holistic Healing House in Scottsdale, AZ. Harumi discovered the benefits of Yoga when combating the mental and physical fatigue of her demanding work at a Japanese diplomatic office in the US. Her physical practice of yoga soon led to further inquiry into yoga’s mental and spiritual applications. This wider view of yoga addressed the “whole person”, that of the relationship between body, mind and spirit which sparked her decision to pursue training as an instructor.
She succeeded in attaining the highest proficiency level granted by the Yoga Alliance, E-500 RYT (Experienced Register Yoga Teacher, teaching hours more than 5,000 hours). Harumi then obtained the C-IAYT followed by advanced training with a Therapeutic Life Mentor certificate in 2016. Harumi founded unique HarumiYoga+ Holistic Healing House in 2009 in North Scottsdale.
Harumi utilizes her intensive studies from the different traditions of Kripalu School of Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Prana Flow, Yin Yoga and various styles of Meditation. Harumi combined these with knowledge accumulated from world-wide participation and professional training into her classes. She has studied meditation with Thich Nhat Hanh, Bhante Sujatha, Roshi Joan Halifax and Sensei Jokai Blackwell, and traveled to many temples and monasteries in Asia and US. Harumi’s teaching philosophy and holistic viewpoint evolved into body-mind connection, the cornerstone of her mission to inspire students to promote healthy living.
