"I was recommended to Yoko for a massage when I visited Bristol in November 2019. I have shoulder injury, neck and back problems. I usually have physiotherapy once a week to help relieve the pain. I had two massage sessions with Yoko. She is very professional and the atmosphere was very calming, with gentle music in the background. After the first massage I had a noticeable difference in the pain level and movement in my neck and shoulders. Two days later I had the second massage session, again very calming and relaxing atmosphere. The following day I had hardly any pain and my neck, shoulders and back had a lot more movement. I drove back to Gosport, which would usually cause me to have restricted movement and pain the next day, but this time nothing. I didn't have to go to the Physiotherapist for 3 weeks.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Yoko."
"Yoko taught me 'If you don't change the mind the body does not change.' I was in search of sympathy so I was shocked. But she gave me instructions and good details and said 'no rush.'
When I failed I was depressed. I compared myself to other people, had self-hatred and negative thoughts about myself. But I began to see that even my body's problems; I should just feel them and deal with them. It is a process of growth.
"One of the best energising and stress relief yoga classes I've ever attended! The stretches were expansive and soothing, and yoko's teaching is beautiful - very supportive. I would highly recommend to everyone!"
"I really enjoy this class. The slow pace of the class, together with Yoko’s feedback (who’s also very nice 😊), allows you to focus on the correct alignment. Although often overlooked, energy and chakras are a big part of the yoga tradition and I’m very happy there is now a class specifically focused on that! Highly recommended 😊"
"Wonderful class, Yoko really knows her stuff, a great teacher very attentive. I really enjoyed the Chi work. Thank you."
"Yoko is an intuitive practitioner with knowledge of many disciplines. I have benefitted from her wealth of experience which have broadened my outlook on what I eat, how I can get to know my body better and which ways work best for me."
"Yoko is a wonderful yoga teacher. I’m yet to find a better teacher than Yoko."
"My 2 months Yoga experience with Yoko was amazing. I have not found another like her yet."
"Yoko contributes her heart when she gives a massage and the receiver benefits greatly."
