Mai is originally from Tokyo, Japan. Since she was very small, she loved to dance with music. So as she started taking ballet lessons at the age of 9, she fell in love with the magic of ballet. To pursue her dream to become a professional ballerina, she jumped out from Japan at age of 16 to Canada and study further in ballet. After that, she continued her training in USA and finally in Rotterdam.
After she graduated from CODARTS, the Rotterdam Dance Academy, she worked as a professional dancer for 8 years.
She started teaching yoga since 2008, and she became a certified teacher in 2013.
There was a big encounter with Feldenkrais Method in 2010 in Tokyo. She immediately thought that the method is something that she was always looking for. And after 4 years of training directed by Lawrence Wm. Goldfarb, CFT, Ph.D, she became certified Feldenkrais teacher.
Currently, she is teaching yoga and Feldenkrais method in Rotterdam region. She is willing to spread the wisdom of Feldenkrais method.
