Sachiko’s yoga journey started in 2003 while she was a student at university. She got hooked right away on Ashtanga Yoga as a way to focus her mind and see deeper into herself. Her yoga practice became more important than her studies. After graduating in 2004, she went to India to study from Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India, and did her teacher training in Thailand in 2005.
Ever since then, she’s sought out teachers in the Ashtanga method and learned from authorized and certified teachers. She’s been teaching yoga at community centers, fitness gyms, and yoga studios in Saskatoon, Kelowna, and Victoria for the past 15 years.
Sachiko loves teaching the Mysore style of yoga as she gets to connect with each student and help them in their self-discovery through the practice.
Sachiko is also part of our wellness team offering both massage and reflexology at VI Yoga School. You can view more about her services here.
