for Thoughtful, Unconventional, Curious, Passionate People.


Foster a healthy and peaceful relationship with eating while discovering foods that fuel and satisfy your body, mind and soul. 


Increase your strength, stamina, mobility, balance, mood, creativity, focus, confidence and overall health through safe and effective exercise that energizes, not depletes you.


Focus on your health and wellbeing with a weight-neutral, non-diet approach to fitness.  No: measuring or weighing and absolutely no shaming or judging. Your body is welcome and respected here however it shows up and evolves. 


You can feel good, get stronger and eat in a way that helps you thrive without making fitness your life’s project. I can help you cultivate a movement practice that allows you to worry less about your workouts and focus more on the people and experiences you care about most.  And if you would like to learn a relaxed, non-diet approach to nutrition, I’ve got you covered there as well. Bring your curious, open mind to our sessions and I’ll provide guidance, structure and support to help you reach your just right fitness and nutrition goals. 

Let’s create a fitness plan that complements your vibrant life, not competes with it.


There was a time when “maintaining my body” was my main priority in life. Scarcely a moment went by when I wasn’t thinking about or planning my next meal or workout. This took so much of my time, energy and attention that I had little left (and what was left was low quality) to invest in the stuff that really mattered to me like my family, my work and my well being. So despite being a personal trainer and nutrition coach, I learned how to let go of and step away from the endless body project, stop dieting and overtraining, and let fitness and nutrition be something that supports my life, instead of something that defines it. Now I’m passionate about helping other people do the same thing. Health and fitness habits are empowering and important, but they shouldn’t be the boss of you.

Emiko's guidance on nutrition has been invaluable - she is not about dieting or restriction.  She teaches you to learn new habits, one at a time, which makes it easy to adjust to a new way of eating and thinking about food.

I used to think that “working on my core” just meant “trying to get a six pack”. But once my core got stronger, I also noticed that my back pain was gone! I used to think that I had to go long and hard for exercise to make a difference, but what my body ended up responding to was a handful of specific exercises done slow and steady.

I cannot thank Emiko enough for helping me feel good about my body again, especially as a woman in midlife.  She has positively changed my views and opinions on this stage of life completely!  Because of her I have a healthy relationship with food and I actually ENJOY working out both at the gym and at home.




At least one Sunday a month, I’ll deliver a message straight to your inbox offering encouragement, sharing something I recently learned or expressing what’s on my mind. And from time to time, I will let you know about services and products I offer or remind you that you can hire me to be your weight-neutral, non-diet fitness and nutrition coach.
