Yuuki Hirano

Exective Director

Yuuki Hirano joined as a co-founder of Hosh Yoga in 2009. His passion for well being and social equality is what drives his ambitions with Hosh. He started off as a teacher then as a manager, a director and is currently Chairman of the Board of Directors. Yuuki's journey started during his undergraduate studies, majoring in philosophy, this is where he was first introduced to yoga. Unbeknownst to him this interest in mental, emotional and physical well being would catapult him to where he is now. 


Yuuki believes now, more than ever, that grassroots efforts are what are going to move communities, neighborhoods and humanity forward. To create a greater social impact it begins with the self. If each person can become more aware of themselves, their well being and impact on the world, the choices that are made may begin to change. The way we interact and support each other can shift. Yuuki's hope is that Hosh creates both a space for this to take place, furthermore facilitating the supporting opportunities to bring space to neighborhoods, communities and people who need it the most.
