About

Hi, I’m Mariko ✌🏽

My name is Mariko (she/her/hers). I’m a 2nd gen FilAm and 4th gen Japanese American living on the land of the Coast Salish people, otherwise known as Seattle. I’m a yoga student and 500 hr certified teacher that is slowly learning how to best honor yoga’s roots as I deepen my practice and share it with others. I’m currently a grad school student studying counseling psychology, with the hopes of making somatically informed mental health practices more accessible to queer Asian Americans like myself. Part of this work includes reclaiming my own sense of ancestral interconnectedness, which I don’t talk about much in this IG space but is a big focus for me in this season of life :)

In my free time I love to read, craft, knit, run, walk, care for my plants, and cuddle with my cats.
