« Exhaling is a Superpower. My mission is to guide you through how to use it to transcend your deepest tensions into joy and spontaneity. »

Hi, I'm Yuko

I’ll be taking you on a one of a kind journey to experience the alchemy of exhaling – the power of the Out Breath – to metamorphose your life in ways you can’t imagine. You will experience first hand how amazing you are wired to feel.

By sharing with you how to take care of your life through developing a nurturing relationship with your breath, you will witness how the smallest breathing out actions can make the biggest difference in your mind, body and being, influencing your ability to self soothe, enhance your mobility, gain perspective and feel naturally vibrant.

As a seasoned yoga teacher and breath coach, fusioning the wisdom and science of both practices opens a paradigm shift on how we can hack into our spontaneity and joy.

By learning to breathe out, develop the most important relationship, the one with yourself.

Just like falling in love, Running is spontaneous! By learning to breathe out through your nose as you run never struggle through a run. Ever again.

Learning to breathe empowers a team to contribute to creating a healthy work environment. It arms them with the ability to decrease mental fatigue and stress, to save energy for a sustainable work-life balance promoting long-term wellbeing.

Breathing creates time and space. Room to breathe boosts mental clarity,  team effectiveness, moral and successes.

What Clients Think

Everyone is unique. Each individual requires a tailor made approach according to their life experiences.


Everyone is unique. Each individual requires a tailor made approach according to their life experiences.

Feeling You. Alive. Poised, aligned and agile.
Welcome to your personal journey. You are unique and so should your transformation be too.

Each session will focus on nourishing what already works in harmony. Too often we focus on the things that are not going well rather than supporting the areas that are functioning and even thriving. Tensions tend to be symptoms of a much deeper rooted knot. By directing our attention through our breath to create space into the functioning elements, superfluous tension willl naturally melt away revealing the knot into which the breath can create space and over time by developing trust and self esteem we can seek out the network of professionals who can accompany us with specific issues. Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

You are. This is your journey.

There are indeed a plathora of formidable mindful breathing practices and they guide us all to a sense of wholeness and wellbeing. 

We will focus on the power of breathing out. Exhaling. You will learn how to nasal breathe and in the long run, this breathing practice leads you to simulated altitude training. Master the outbreath and you will be able to simulate 4000m in altitude and benefit from the enhanced physical and mental wellness of being up high such as:

– loose weight
