Shigeko is a yoga therapist and nutritionist. Born and raised in Japan, her Eastern discipline is very much a part of her life. Along the way, she became enamored with martial arts and acquired second degree black belts in Japanese Kenpo and Tae Kwon Do. She is also became proficient in meditation and Qigong and Tai Chi.
As the founder Shigeko Yoga, she has been teaching yoga in the Denver metro area since 2003. Her style is influenced by wonderful Denver local teachers in Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Hot Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga. She also completed her yoga therapy certification with Canadian Institute of Therapeutic Yoga. She continues to discover herself and deepen her knowledge and wisdom by studying with her spiritual guide, Mitch Rosacker at Self Discovery Studio.
With an open heart, she welcomes everyone and serves the world in her own unique way. Her passion for yoga is shared at her studio for private sessions, public studios for groups and special events, and the Denver Police Department. She’s extremely honored and grateful for the opportunity to touch so many lives through yoga—her truth and gift to the world.
