Masumi is a Japanese woman based on Ubud, Bali now. I am the Founder and Director of Chakra Work Association in Japan. Chakra work focuses on the techniques to awaken the 7 chakra energies and help one understand their purpose in life. These techniques, mysteries of Himalayan Kriya yoga learned from Pilot Babalji, combined with breathing techniques, meditation, dance and mantras make up the core of her teaching. I am holding the 7 Chakra Work Teacher Training courses and retreats aa lot in Bali and Japan.
Through yoga my life has become bright, exciting and fun while helping me to keep things simple and in perspective. It’s helped me to focus on things that are important while letting go of things that aren’t.It’s my hope to share what I have experienced that we may grow richer through yoga together.
Q. We know a little of your background from what we see in the website, but what would you say is the turning point in your life? Or was there one and at what period of time was it at?
A. Yes, on March 11th, 2011. After the big tsunami that damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant, I realized people have to awaken to real inner peace and I had to take some kind of action now. I was inspired to deepen my study of chakra work and to share that knowledge.
Q. What was it about Bali that attracted you? And how long have you been there? Besides being from Japan, which place would you say occupies a greater place in your heart?
A. I love Japan but when I’m in Ubud I can meet people from many countries. I also have the chance to learn many different kinds of energy work. And I love tropical fruit! I also love to see the colorful Balinese ceremonies.
Being away from Japan reminds me of how special it is. I love Japanese people. They are so kind to each other and really know how to live in harmony with one another. There are so many beautiful historic places in the mountains, beautiful beaches in the south (like Okinawa) and, I feel, the best food in the world.
Q. What would you say is your guiding philosophy for life/perhaps your mission/vision?
A. My mission is connect people through love, chakra work and music. To guide them to their inner peace. Only through inner peace can we achieve world peace.
Q. Why do you choose to focus on chakras? Are there any that you consider to be of greater priority than others?
A. I study the anatomy of the chakras, not only the spiritual side. And I don’t focus only on yoga technics but also many healing technics and Kirtan, dance and so on. I feel a holistic approach is the best way to improve ourselves.
Q. What are some of the objectives you have in mind for your workshop or in other words what can someone coming to your workshop expect to learn? What could be their takeaway?
What do you hope to see and who would be your target audience ?
A. By focusing on emotional release and our own inner peace I hope to help people be more loving to themselves and those around them.
Q. What do you see for yourself in the near future…are there other areas you’d like to pursue?
A. I’m always looking to further my studies and broaden my horizons through travel and connecting with people from all over the world.
