Meet Chloé


Yoga is one of these things that has always been part of me, in fact, I was born in France inside a Yoga Studio and not in a hospital (my parents' decision). Some would think it is a coincidence but I would say it is more down to my Karma (a Sanskrit term meaning action or deed).

Meet Eriko


Eriko started her yoga journey looking for exercise. While her body became flexible, her mind also became soft and relaxed. And she knew that all answers are inside of ourselves. Her life became so exiting both on and off the mat.

From 2012 to 2015, she studied Lila yoga, Hatha yoga, Kundalini yoga, and had a RYT200 certification. This summer, she taught beach yoga and SUP yoga at Shonan beach.

Her class at Chikara is basic Hatha yoga, moving with deep breath. Let's have a relaxing time and big gratitude to our own body!
