Dosha Ami Teachers Path

Agni’s Featured Teacher
Ami Kanagawa – Tokyo, Japan

Ami Kanagawa is the first person in Japan to become a Vedic Master, certified as an instructor in all three branches of the Teachers Path (Primordial Sound Meditation, Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, and Perfect Health). For the past five years, she has also served as a business consultant in the mobile content industry in Japan and Europe. Ami plans to open her own studio in Tokyo and teach full-time.

How many Chopra Center events have you attended?
Besides the teacher training courses in Primordial Sound Meditation, Yoga, and Perfect Health, I have attended three Chopra Center events: Seduction of Spirit, Journey into Healing, and the Perfect Health program.

What was your favorite event?
It is very hard to say because all the events were unique and wonderful. What is so great about Chopra Center events is not only the content itself but also the opportunity to meet great people from all over the world. Although I really loved all the programs I attended, if I had to pick just one, I would choose Seduction of Spirit, which transformed me and my view of life into a completely different one. It was my first Chopra Center event and I joined the one in Dublin, Ireland, in July 2007. There were about 500 people and the energy was amazing. By the third day of the event, I was sure that I would like to be one of the Chopra Center instructors and share the wonderful experience with many people in Japan!

What inspires you to teach?
I strongly believe that meditation, yoga, and ayurveda will help everyone in the world to live a happier life regardless of his/her situation. I have been inspired by the great power of these tools and I truly love them very much. So I would like to share the wisdom with everyone coming to me. And when I receive positive feedbacks from my students, I am inspired even more. I become very happy and thankful for the opportunity given to me.
