Baptiste Yoga Certified Teacher:
Mitsue Yokoo

Mitsue was born in Osaka where she was a gymnast when she was a high school student. After graduating medical technical college, she worked for Medical University Hospital in Osaka. The experience became the base of her physical knowledge of Yoga. The move from Osaka to Tokyo in 1999 was very stressful and as it happens, she read a special feature on yoga in a news paper and decided to start hatha yoga.

In 2005 she met a teacher who taught the Baptiste style yoga in Tokyo. After taking one class, Mitsue was totally hooked and wanted to learn more about Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga. She wanted to spread the fabulous style of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga across Japan as a certified teacher. She completed level 1 teacher training in Hawaii and Level 2 teacher training in Montana in 2008. With the support from her best friend, Jan Atkins, who is a certified BPVY teacher, she completed her certification in April, 2009.

She teaches her yoga classes with love, passion, power and fun and tries to help students unlock their heart and body. Mitsue is a marketer in the medical device field and continues to balance her full time job with her yoga teaching.
