About Yoko Ohashi
Yoko has a strong background in visual arts and yoga. She was born in Osaka, Japan, and her early experience of coming to live in the US inspired her to explore herself in this new culture. Yoko is grateful to have come across Zen in Brooklyn and looks forward to deeply rooting her practice in sangha. Yoko currently  co-facilitates the People of Color sangha. She has been practicing and studying Soto Zen Buddhism for over a decade since she first came to the center. She was lay ordained by Teah Strozer in 2015 and served as head student during the fall practice period in 2016.
