Yukari’s yoga journey started about 10 years ago. She was so busy keeping up with and chasing her toddlers that she had little time for herself. One day she had the opportunity to take a yoga class, and the timing was just right. She was amazed at how stiff and unbalanced her body was and also how busy her mind was during class. Despite that, she found herself instantly in love with practicing Yoga. Since then, everyday practice has guided her to be present, patient and flexible, both physically and mentally.
She completed 200 hours Hatha Yoga teacher training with her passionate teacher at the Senaji Studio in Japan, 2013. She then enrolled in the Core Strength Vinyasa Flow course in 2014 and Yoga Shred in 2018. She’s taught over 1000 hours of group classes and private lessons in last six years. She’s earned an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT200) qualification.
She moved to Portsmouth, RI. in 2019. She met Reinette Fournier, owner of Tenth Gate and all the other inspirational Yoga teachers at that studio. She’s learned beautiful healing energy of Reiki. Under Master Teacher Reinette’s guidance, she completed training and became a Master Teacher of Usui Holy Fire lll System of Reiki.
She enjoys teaching Yoga classes to all levels and abilities and sharing light and love thru Reiki sessions.
