She trained at The Australian Ballet School in Melbourne and attained a contract with Houston Ballet soon after graduation.

During her years of training and performing, Pilates was a huge part of her daily routine for both body conditioning and injury rehabilitation. She very much believes in the Pilates method and its benefits.

She first discovered her love for yoga on a holiday in Bali after completing a Bachelor of Biomedical Science in 2013. Upon return to the Gold Coast that same year, she searched for a yoga studio and found Essence of Living.  Her first Vinyasa class at the studio resonated with every cell in her body and Essence of Living quickly became her second home.

Midori has completed Yoga and Pilates Level 1 with Essence of Living Academy as well as Yoga Teacher Level 1 (200hr) Certificate at The Byron Yoga Centre.
