Lainy is a Qigong and a Soma Breathwork teacher who was born and raised in Japan. Her Japanese upbringing was only one of the many diverse early influences. Her parents are of Chinese descent, a Buddhist and a Catholic. They, themselves were born and raised in Indonesia, an ex-Dutch colony. These various cultures and her subsequent experiences and training have shaped her way of looking at the world, our place in it, our connections with each other, with nature and the earth, and the body/mind relationship itself.

Her exposure to various ways of thinking continued throughout her childhood in Japan where she attended an international school and was exposed to a wide variety of nationalities and cultures - an experience which enabled her to grow up seeing the world both through her own eyes and from a range of different perspectives.

The drive to further expand her understanding and awareness led her into the study and practice in a variety of Eastern ancient arts including Acupressure, Reiki, Tai Chi, Neigong, Baguazhang and Qigong as well as Breathwork. Along the way, Lainy also pursued martial arts and has a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu and has achieved Pro-Kick Silver level in kickboxing. Her particular interest though is in the body/heart-mind relationship, which is a key aspect in all these disciplines.

It is Lainy's desire to share this ancient gem of the East with the community to bring awareness of the essence of what it means to be healthy and whole. To share the self-healing techniques that Qigong and Breathwork offer with others and to help enhance their well-being.
