Chiyoko is the co-founder of mindfresh, a company that believes if you stretch your body, you'll stretch your mind, and you'll stretch your productivity. They developed the mindfresh 30-Minute Method that was designed for offices: easy stretching, deep breathing, guided meditation so people can feel revived at work. NYC + SF are just the start as minds need refreshing in all cities.

Prior to taking a deep dive down the rabbit hole into the world of mindfulness, meditation and yoga in 2010, Chiyoko headed up marketing and e-commerce teams in the fashion industry at places like Calvin Klein and Alexander Wang. Ad agencies were the start of her New York City career at McCann Erickson and Havas Worldwide working on consumer brands like Evian, Neutrogena, Volvo and Pepsi.

Today she can be found regularly taking class at Jivamukti Yoga School NYC, jetting around the city building her startup, mindfresh, and obsessing over writing the perfect blog posts when time should be spent elsewhere.
