What Clients Are Saying

Mariko is a yoga instructor’s instructor. She’s the best one I’ve had. She’s passionate, precise, friendly, and very calming. In her class you feel energized and rejuvenated.

– Review from Rate Your Burn

Having had an Ayurvedic consultation with you enabled me to tap ever more of your plentiful resources. Getting me moving, getting stronger and more flexible, paying more attention to how I breathe, meditation, learning pranayama techniques … I’m more thoughtful of what I eat. I can’t thank you enough.

– Harold Bott, Musician and Composer, New York City

She is a phenomenal instructor – a genuine yogi with a background in dance. Her instructions are nuanced but crystal clear, and it makes a huge difference. I leave feeling like I’ve worked every muscle in my body, got an amazing stretch, and strengthened my spirit. She is amazing and a joy to learn from.
