Yoga Teacher(E-RYT 500)
I moved to NYC from Japan in 1999 to study dance with the highly esteemed dancer, Lynn Simonson, where I also taught for some time. Shortly after, she was introduced to the practice of yoga and discovered the freedom it can bring to one’s busy life.
This movement combination piqued my interest in multiple styles of yoga and the individual benefits each one bestows the practitioner. As a result, My style is a heart-oriented approach to yoga, combined with a deep understanding of alignment, therapeutics and yoga philosophy.
Being a Reiki master (2013) and teacher, I blend my healing and compassion into all that my offers.
My yoga teacher trainings and certifications include: Anusara with Zhenja La Rosa; Prana with Jeff Migdow, MD and Robyn Ross; Prenatal with Janice Clarfield, Restorative with Jillian Pransky and Yin with Karen Mandell.
My Reiki certifications include: Kazuhisa Nakagawa, Tama Mayumi Boettcher, Chiaki Wada.
