Help the Sakura Arts Collective blossom!



Thank you very much for visiting this page!

・Sakura Arts Collective is a new dance and yoga studio and small business that Mayu and Jonathan started together in order to share Mindful Movement practice with the Honolulu community. 
・We are a growing tribe of entrepreneurs, dancers, yogis, musicians, as well as visual artists.
・A collective of artists with a strong desire to move, breathe and be. 
・We offer an array of weekly educational classes in several styles of dance, several styles of yoga, and breathwork/ meditation and events. 

With your help, we can keep the doors of our studio open and be of service to these amazing artists and this wonderful city that we love. With your kindness and contributions, we believe that we can make it through this challenging time and continue to serve our students. 

Thank you for your contribution of any size, we are so grateful and your help means the world to us. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have made it through these times and your donation will help us so very much. 

We are raising money in order to keep this space alive and be able to offer various arts such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness practice, dance, live music, and live arts, and more.

There has never been a stronger need in the world than right now for people to have access to meditation, yoga, breath-work, and dance classes. Your donation assures that hundreds of people will be able to get out of the house connect with themselves and others while they have an hour of peace and stillness with the community. 

We support local underrepresented minority artists and their families. Here at our space is one of few places left where they can share their work and their passion. Through your generous assistance, we will be able to hold a space for these 20 artists and take care of our studio. And we believe that this community will grow!


I am a Japanese woman who moved to Hawaii by myself about 4 years ago to pursue my dreams of which the first goal was teaching yoga and study more Ayurveda in English and opening a studio is my audacious goal.  During COVID, this audacious dream came true! 
I am a lifelong student of yoga and Ayurveda.  I enjoy exploring the sound waves of Crystal bowls, share knowledge, and assisting people in their mindfulness journey. 
I just started this business during covid so it is very unsure but I believe and willing to facing challenges! 

Your donations will help me to continue the work that people so desperately need at this very moment. I love to serve and sincerely helping others is my passion.
