Under Yumiko’s precise and patient instruction in Pilates I have learned to connect my body to my mind in a way I never have before. I began Pilates with Yumiko in my mid 60’s after many years of personal training and have learned a different language of fitness developing my core strength and flexibility.
Yumiko has a keen eye for the precise small adjustments necessary for effective Pilates exercise. Over the past four years, I have been challenged, encouraged, and gained muscle strength in her studio and her remote zoom classes. I recommend her highly!

I never thought I would do Pilates, now I can’t live without it.  I have always had back issues and Pilates has strengthened my body and improved my flexibility.  Yumiko is very attentive and highly experienced Pilates instructor.  I love all her classes so much I even invested in a reformer machine so that I can continue my reformer classes with her via zoom.

Yumiko is an excellent  instructor; she’s a stickler about form, mixes up her classes for variety and manages to keep her classes challenging.  I’ve been a client for 8 years and I always look forward to the next class.
