Yuuki first began practicing Pilates in 2015 and immediately fell in love with the health and wellness world. After performing for several years with the Disneyland Resort and the Disney Cruise Line, and experiencing several injuries in her dance and stage combat career, Yuuki found Classical Pilates to be one of the most corrective forms of exercise that has continued to help her in her healing. Yuuki worked under the mentorship of her teachers Pamela Debiase and Daniela Escobar at Westwood Pilates, where she taught and worked with clients of all movement backgrounds and levels.
Yuuki also has an extensive background in yoga, having studied with Saraswathi Jois in India and completing certifications under Liz Arch and Tamal Dodge. She now combines her love for both yoga and Pilates to gain a better understanding of the body and how clients can recover from and prevent future injuries.
Yuuki currently resides in Los Angeles, where she continues to study and share her passion for movement and its ability to heal both body and mind. She loves to write in her spare time and has been featured with Mindbodygreen, Yoga Journal, and Funky Feminist. Her highest hope is to continue to inspire others just as much as her teachers, family, and friends have inspired her.
