Yoko underwent a sixteen-month Mysore apprenticeship as well as a nine-month pregnancy yoga apprenticeship with Cathy Louise. Her first trip to Mysore, India was in 2008. She spent three months practicing with R. Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Rangaswamy. During that time, she also studied Sanskrit and Yoga Sutra chanting under Dr. M. A. Jayashree. Yoko’s practice extends to annual visits to Maui to see Manju Jois and Nancy Gilgoff.
