I have been attending Harmony Yoga Studio for many years and always walk out from a class feeling relaxed and a general sense of well being. During COVID, Mariko has continued her classes with Zoom; and while I look forward to the time we can return to the studio, I have to say I find the Zoom classes just as meaningful and beneficial. Mariko continues to watch, calls your attention to a pose not being done correctly (or a way to do it a little better), always with a gentle and calm reassuredness. Mariko always stresses that yoga is not just about doing a pose and holding it, but rather having your body and mind connect to the pose and having the strength come from within. It's a different way of thinking...yoga being a lifelong practice, not just a class. Strong, yet at peace, is one of her many teaching tools. I have been to other yoga studios, but definitely feel that Mariko is a truly unique and special teacher. I could go on, but experiencing Mariko's yoga classes for yourself is even better.
