Yuuki is a New York State Licensed Acupuncturist and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He received his Master of Science from Tri-State College of Acupuncture which has given him the resources to practice three different styles of acupuncture; Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture Physical Medicine, (developed by the school’s founder Mark Seem) and a Japanese style of acupuncture taught by master practitioner Kiiko Matsumoto.
He integrates all three styles into his approach, but focuses mainly on the Japanese style of acupuncture for its gentle style of needling and proven clinical success.
Yuuki is also the proud owner of Dou Yoga as well as the co-founder of Suryaside Yoga and Hosh Yoga. He is the Co-Director and Co-Lead teacher of the 200 hour teacher training program at Dou Yoga and Suryaside Yoga.
In addition to a decade of practice, Yuuki has been teaching since 2008. He completed his 500 hour training with ISHTA Yoga and is influenced by the breath based practices of Krishnamachariya. Yuuki believes in the importance of functional movement and using the breath as a foundation and progression of one’s yoga practice. With his understanding of anatomy, body mechanics, meditation, the breath and the energy that weaves all it together, Yuuki wishes to educate and create an environment of inquiry, healing and growth for his students
