Fumiko has been practicing yoga for over 30 years. At the age of 44 she has a timeless, glowing beauty. Since 2006 Fumiko has pioneered the unique techniques that make up facial yoga, and is one of the best known face exercise instructors in Japan. The results she found in her own face and those of her students speak for themselves. Frequently traveling between Japan and the United States, Fumiko hosts events and workshops in both countries. She has spent the past 4 years teaching, creating Face Yoga Method DVDs, writing books, developing the Face Yoga Method products and making frequent appearances on TV and in magazine articles in Japan. Her Japanese books have been translated in Chinese, Korean and Thai and sold in China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. She also has appeared on Korean TV shows. But it is the one on one interactions of a facial yoga class that are the most rewarding to Fumiko, helping students discover their most beautiful face and inner self. Currently Fumiko provides written and video contents for a subscription based Facial Yoga cellular phone application in Japan. She splits her time between Tokyo and California and lives in Sacramento, California with her husband Henry and a daughter Nina.
