Yumiko is a very passionate and dedicated yogi whose desire to learn is truly admirable. She is open and receptive to feedback and does an incredible job at implementing what is suggested to her.

She is very creative in her sequencing and has this incredible ability to make the entire room smile as she adds in her own little colourful phrasing to her teaching. Her voice is always consistent and calm and truly helps students focus on their own breath and movement.

There is no doubt that Yumiko will be a great yoga teacher, one whom many students will resonate with and thus will keep coming back to her classes!

“During my 200-hour yoga teacher training, I had the good fortune of being class mates alongside Yumiko.  She is extremely knowledgeable about the body and proper asana alignment and I learned a lot about yoga from her. She fosters a sense of community in her yoga classes that is welcoming and kind. Her classes are approachable to everyone at all levels. Yumiko teachers her students in a helpful and thorough manner, while also being friendly, warm and a general joy to be around. Most of all, she has such a healing dialogue when she teaches her yoga classes!” – Heather, 33

“I’ve attended several of Yumiko’s Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga classes. I’ve really enjoyed them and love her teaching style. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the practice, she is also very hands-on, helping you into the postures, and encouraging. I would recommend Yumiko to everyone and look forward to taking more classes with her!” – Birta, 24
