Hikaru Hashimoto has been practicing yoga since the age of twenty-three. In order to promote yoga widely in Japan, he established the Japan Fitness Yoga Association in 1993, where he has developed programs based on Dharma Yoga and Hatha Yoga.

The association not only nurtures many instructors but also provides yoga programs for fitness clubs, culture centers, daycare centers, junior and senior high schools and other educational facilities, and also institutions such as nursing homes, police and courthouses. Hikaru is currently systemizing and spreading Shinto Yoga, a collaboration of yoga and ancient prajna that can be seen in Shinto exercises.
