Ryuji is a 300 hour YogaJaya Accredited Teacher (YJAT300), BASEWORKS Practice Tier 1 Certified Teacher (BT1), and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200) with the Yoga Alliance. When Ryuji learned of a personal genetic issue he turned to yoga as an movement therapy combined with a dietary routine to strengthen his health. Ryujii discovered YogaJaya after attaining acupuncture and moxibustion certifications. With a background over 15 years in competitive swimming and gymnastics, along with in-depth study in anatomy and physiology, Ryuji was deeply impressed by the BASEWORKS Practice System. A desire to further deepen his understanding of the system led him to complete the YogaJaya / BASEWORKS Practice Teacher Training and to share the experience with others as a teacher.
