Yukie teaches Nia and Yoga for a wide variety of age groups at studios and for companies based in Kanagawa prefecture in Japan.

Even from a young age Yukie loved to dance. She started learning modern dance and classic ballet at the age of 3. During struggles in her teenage years, dance saved her from being overcome by difficult challenges, and she became interested in “why people dance.” To explore how art forms such as dance affect the body and mind, she studied psychology and healing art at university.

Yukie sadly stopped dancing due to injuries, then discovered different styles of dance and yoga. To continue studying the body/mind relationship, Yukie earned her yoga instructor certification.

At the same time, she discovered Nia. She was impressed with the philosophy and phenomenon of Nia. By becoming more aware of her body sensations, of her emotional feelings, and of her thoughts while doing Nia, Yukie became more aware of her true self. She realized how much potential each individual naturally has, and how the movement of Nia leads to a healthy body and mind.

Yukie started Nia in 2015 and completed her Nia White Belt Training with her beloved teacher, Winalee Zebb at Still & Moving Center in Hawaii. She returned again for her Nia Green Belt Training in 2018 and Nia Blue Belt Training in 2019, both with Winalee.

At the age of 32, Yukie had a major surgery (segmentectomy of the breast) to remove a phyllomic tumor. Even though she went through tremendous pain throughout the recovery process, her Nia techniques helped her to find the movements that her body needed to recuperate and feel comfortable again, and she was able to return to work.

Training at Still & Moving Center was one of the most valuable times in her life. Even though English is not her native language, she was able to connect to people from all over the world through Nia at Still & Moving. That experience positively influenced her life. Says Yukie: “Still & Moving Center is my precious home.”

Yukie is RYT certified for 500hrs through Yoga Alliance.
