Fumi Murakami, Certified Level 1 & 2 GYROTONIC® Instructor
Fumi Murakami received a BA in Mathematics and Theater/Dance from Oberlin College. She continued to dance over the years while pursuing a career in Information Technology. She was fortunate to discover Pilates, studying for 15 years with master teacher Cary Regan, which assisted in her ability to continue to perform with many local choreographers including Wade Madsen, Michele, Miller, Pablo Cornejo, Mark Haim, Jason Ohlberg, and Deborah Wolf. Fumi co-founded a dance production company, Evoke Productions, twelve years ago and it is still going strong today. It was while rehearsing for the very first of these productions that Fumi tried the Gyrotonic method to assist with loss of flexibility in the upper spine. She was so happy to have discovered the Gyrotonic method and the wonderful benefits that she decided to become a trainer.
Fumi enjoys the one on one interaction with clients and is thrilled to be helping clients feel better and work to achieve their maximum potential. She is certified on all the specialized equipment, Level II, and has completed additional courses: Gyrotonic applications for feet and hands with Emma Kingston, Uwe Herbstreit's Application for the Pelvis-Girdle Workshop, and Juergen Bamberger's Psoas Principles.Fumi spends her free time volunteering as treasurer of the drama boosters at her daughter's high school, working on knitting projects, cooking and baking, and spending time with her family.
