Yuhka graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in violin performance. She holds Diploma, MA in Performance degrees and teaching qualifications at both universities above, and Bachelor of Arts and Masters degrees from the Musashino Academia Musicae in Tokyo, Japan. In addition, she has also obtained music teaching qualifications in Japan, which allowed her to teach at selected local high schools as a music teacher. An active freelance musician, she has been a member of a variety of chamber music ensembles and has performed in Japan, London and New Zealand. She has been interested in the relationship between mental and physical aspects of body performances since she was in Japan where she was a master student and chose a topic from a book called Le violin interieur by Dominique Hoppenot which was suggested by her very 1st violin teacher, Aoki Atsuko who was a student of Dominique.Yuhka has studied different approaches to improving musical performance through mental training with Dr. Shuichi Tsuji and Alexander Technique with John Crawford. Her yoga practice started in Japan and travelled together with her to New Zealand where she lives in the last 5 years. The encounter to her yoga teacher, Karla Broodie changed her definition of yoga and led her to complete Contemporary yoga teacher training in 2023. Her passion of teaching in music and body movements enables musical students accessible to learning music as free body expressions and also yoga students to experience her creative way of class in mutual communication relationships between teacher and student.
