Yana fell in love with Shiatsu in 1995 while attending the Boulder School of Massage Therapy. She took every class they offered in Zen Shiatsu and upon graduating she worked as a teaching assistant for a year and pursued private study. In 1996 she started her practice and began studying with Pauline Sasaki, the developer of Quantum Shiatsu. Shiatsu has not only been her livelihood but an integral part of her personal development. It has opened her mind to the anatomy of the physical body and to a world beyond our seeing. She have studied different types of manual therapies as well as shamanic work and she brings the whole of her experience to each session though always within the framework of Quantum Shiatsu. Yana is dedicated to helping people blossom into the full expression of themselves, no matter where they are on their journey.
