Makiko Kurata has been my yoga-teacher since the first day she was teaching in the“University of Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt” where I work as a repetiteur.
I had some different yoga-teachers before but nobody was able to connect body and soulas she did. She created always the right balance between tension and relaxation in a verypleasant atmosphere,corrected everybody individually and gave very clear instructions.
I learned a lot from her,got great inspirations and also my back pain disappeared.
After her yoga-class in the morning, I felt always energized and well-balanced all day long.
I will miss her yoga-class very much and recommend her highly as yoga-teacher.
