Satoko started Pilates 13 years ago in Japan, after finding Pilates relieved her severe lower back pain. She has had a love and passion for the Pilates method ever since. In 2008 Satoko trained to become an instructor with Polestar Pilates in Japan, and in 2010 moved to Melbourne with her husband. In 2013 she completed the Pilates Diploma course with Polestar in Melbourne.
Satoko has taught in many studios in Melbourne with a wide range of clientele, including Prenatal and Postnatal Pilates classes, which she is particularly interested in. She is an enthusiastic teacher with a depth of knowledge, and generous teaching methods which ensure all who take her class leave feeling calm, strong and energized.
Satoko is also interested in the connection between the physical and the emotional, and has trained in Reiki, Kinegetics (Kinesiology and balancing energy), and Australian Bush Flower Essences. She wants to continue to develop her knowledge and skills to be able to support her clients in a holistic way.
Satoko also enjoys spending time with her family including her gorgeous Chihuahuas Roi, Toro and Sheila, and doing crochet!
