Born and raised in Japan, Yukako emigrated to Australia in 2004.
Her passion for Ayurveda started in 2013 after she completed her Registered Yoga School (RYS) 200 hours of Yoga teacher training at Centred Yoga (Samahita Retreat Thailand) led by Paul Dallaghan.
Yukako is a qualified Ayurvedic massage therapist and trained at Jeeva Health under the supervision of Dr C.R.S. Kumar in Melbourne and has been working as an Ayurvedic lifestyle coach and therapist for over five years in Cairns and Darwin.
Being a client-focused therapist with a passion for health and well-being, she is highly skilled in several massage techniques – including remedial and acupressure – and excels at optimising the holistic health of her clients.
Practising the Dinacharya (daily routine of Ayurveda) along with yoga helps Yukako to share her experience on how Ayurvedic knowledge can help best align mind and body awareness to help her clients to revive and thrive.
