Information: While I was living in Egypt, I taught scuba diving for 7 years. The courses I was teaching range from beginner level to highly specialised helium gas levels, including instructor training courses, technical diving courses, and first aid and rescue courses. This is where I tried yoga for the first time and loved it immediately, so I kept my practice up.
After relocating to England, I worked in office environment until the birth of my first child. While I was raising my children, I have been involved in running a local Japanese children’s group, assisting the teachers at my local primary school, and also at the Japanese Saturday school to keep up my teaching skills.
Since my first yoga lesson in Egypt I knew I wanted to one day teach it. After I had gained enough experience I enrolled on a yoga teacher’s training course and became a qualified yoga teacher. Since then have been teaching yoga classes in gyms and yoga studios. I also love Body Balance so I decided to achieve the qualification to teach it, and I am very excited to be able to offer both yoga and Body Balance classes. I am so grateful and lucky to be able to teach what I love, and I am so happy to see and hear the benefits that my classes bring to the members.
