Temple was founded by Eric Digras + Kimiko Fujimoto with the vision to build a collective space for practitioners and therapists of all traditions to have a home. If you’d like to be a Temple Collaborator, rent the space, or host an event, we’d love to hear from you to dream up the possibilities.
Eric has been studying and practicing massage therapy for over 10 years. He is a certified therapist trained in Swedish, Adaptive Bodywork Deep Tissue, Deep Flow, the Trager method, and Thai table massage. His approach is intuitive, energetic, and grounded; often combining different techniques such as myofacial release, trigger points, stretching and mobilizations in order to create the sensation of more space and cohesion in the body, inviting freer movement, and reducing pain and stress. He brings an attentive, respectful, and soothing presence that will put you at ease. He will take the time to listen to you and tailor a treatment that is right for you.

LIVE ARTFULLY + MANIFEST LOVE + ROOT TO RISE .>> CREATIVE RITUALIST + EVOLUTIONARY ENTREPRENEUR
My name “little buddha peach tree,” given at birth is my destiny. For the last 14 years, I’ve dedicated my life to the service of sacred sovereignty for all beings. Temple is my altar, and every treatment, workshop, ritual, and teacher training is the culmination of my art and devotion.
As a mystical pilgrim, I travel all over the world to sit with shamans, master teachers, gods and goddesses alike in the fields of yoga, shamanism, herbalism, ceremony, activism, and sacred space. I am a spiritual alchemist who bridges the magical with real-life-grounded applications, to empower individuals with tools to be caretakers of this sacred life.
As an artist, I enjoy the creative process from inception to completion, every detail matters. From the design of posters, herbal elixirs, sound therapy, yoga kriyas, plant botany, astrology, and crystal altars, I bring many mediums together with intention and passionate craft. My creativity is boundless, and I love collaborating with others. I co-founded CEREMONY OF YOGA to unite the masses with spirituality, yoga, and sacred space. I guide retreats all over the world with ROSE CARAVANE.
Monthly I host ritual workshops at Temple and teach Spirit Flow + Kundalini Glow + Moon Rituals at MODO YOGA GRIFFINTOWN + NDG.
After being classically trained in Hatha yoga with Modo Yoga in 2006, I found my master teachers, Shiva Rea ( Prana Vinyasa) and (Rasa Yoga 300hr) Sianna Sherman, to whom guide my extensive studies in Vinyasa + Bhakti yoga, Tantra, and Ritual. In India, I was certified in Kundalini Yoga with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, and became an Osho Sannyasin. My influences for Yin + Restorative Yoga are Biff Mithoefer (Yin Yoga), Sarah Power (Yin Yoga) and Judith Lasater (Restorative Yoga). Since 2013, I've trained over 150 students in my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training + 50 Hour Yin Teacher Training Programs. I am currently developing a Kundalini Glow + Restore Residency slated for 2020. I have owned and operated yoga studios since 2006, and happily offer entrepreneurial mentorship.
My Californian + Japanese + Quebecois ancestry is rooted in the land, and inspired by a family of healers + spirit seekers + mysticism. Following my heart, in 2014 I stepped into the beyond and journeyed into the world of Shamanism with a Vision Quest through the deserts of New Mexico and Sedona, Arizona. A year later I became a core shamanic practitioner with The Foundation of Shamanic Studies, and completed a 3-year apprenticeship Bali. I am a lifelong student and continue to study with various teachers, pathways, and traditions like the Gaia School of Healing for herbalism and crafting. I offer Shamanic Heart + Crystal Council healing sessions, specializing in soul integration + life mission, spiritual awakenings, and teacher mentorship.
