I reconnected with Mariko over Zoom during the pandemic. I was a long time student in her Wantagh studio for many years but moved. I was missing her excellent knowledge of Yoga and meditation. I am so happy to be attending her yoga classes on-line now! I really enjoy the gentle chair yoga class - but ALL of her classes are excellent. Mariko has a unique calmness about her and truly cares for each and every one of her students. Her wisdom and knowledge that she shares in her classes are priceless. I love her!!! I'm much calmer now - especially during these trying times we are all in.
