Hi I am Makiko! I am happy to help you to start yoga practice!!
I will come to your home or the place of your choosing (in Los Gatos or within 10 miles). We will start with basic postures in a gentle manner that matches your level and physical ability. Instruction is available in English or Japanese. (Female or a couple only)
Essential oils available and optional.
My passion for yoga is toward integrating ancient yoga wisdom into daily life. I love to share my love of yoga with youths and adults and in international settings. I am happy to see students find a relief from physical pain as well as mental challenges.
I simply love my private sessions with Makiko. She is an expert and prepares the sessions really well based upon my personal needs. She is able to listen and translate my needs into very good yoga exercises. I truly felt great afterwards!
I will communicate with you before the first class to understand what you would like to address, including any physical or emotional challenges you are facing.
