Meet Azusa (Surname) Wise Cicada’s much-loved and highly regarded raw dessert chef and yoga instructor. She is a mum, daughter, sister, vegan chef, reiki healer and yogini.
Leaving her busy live in Tokyo, Japan to travel the world, Azusa spent time exploring her inner self in a search for Happiness. On this journey she made her first contact with Yoga on the Garden Island of Kaua’i, Hawai’i, in 2008 and this eventually led to her lifelong commitment to Yoga.
Azusa practiced yoga at the K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, at that time it was still headed by Sri K. Parttabhi Jois himself. Later she studied under Rishis and Swamis from the Satyananda Yoga lineage.
While continuing her self-practice she realized that Yoga does not only take place on the mat, it extends to every moment of our lives, it is a personal journey, the Way of Life (Tao).
As an internationally certified Yoga teacher, now permanently settled in Aotearoa, Azusa provides guidance to individuals within their own self-exploration, offering Yoga classes and also Reiki healing for deep relaxation, inner peace and abundance.
‘Explore your own Happiness inside out!
In gratitude for all the beauty we are given in this Life.
