Hello, I am Ria Kuroki.

I took so many paths to get where I stand today. My life is like a roller coaster, ups and downs, thrills and boredoms. Ever since I found yoga as my passion, the course of my life became more clear. I started to seeing subtle connections that create this whole amazing universe. Connecting to myself transformed to be more raw and truthful to myself. I always tried to be someone I idealized, but it was just suffocating and I was never ever good enough. So stop that crazy nonsense and start to find what I am good at.
I sold my car and sold almost everything I possessed and took an adventure to find my passion. I ended up in India to practice yoga everyday. Just to see if I could do this without lying to myself. Here I am, ever since I left India, teaching and sharing my style of yoga to those who come in my life.
I may sound pretentious to you, but I know that I am not pretending. In the end and in your life, all you can do is to be honest to yourself. It is possibly the most difficult thing you could ever do. Indeed, that’s the beauty of challenge and purpose to keep your life alive.
I am working on keeping myself natural as possible, which takes so much process of realizations, doubts, haters and love. But as long as I breathe I will enjoy being in this right moment.
Message to myself: Share your talents to enhance others. Be the change and start now. Love comes within so take care of yourself first.
