About STUDiO PiVOT
Soon after Mr. Masahiro Hirayama established STUDiO PiVOT in 1997, he instituted a program of personal care and physical training for professional athletes.
From 2005 onward the work has expanded to train a variety of bodywork professionals. Originally working with aroma therapists and estheticians, the training grew to include yoga/pilates instructors, fitness trainers, physical therapists, and other allied health professionals. Continuing education in functional anatomy and oil treatments are now offered, enhancing these professionals’ scope of practice.
Starting in 2011, the repertoire grew to include the concept of Physical Training from Infancy focusing on the functionality of the pelvis and hip joints from infancy onward.
A new theory of the body, AWARENESS ANATOMY® emerged to encompass every stage of life. This theory now underlies all of STUDiO PiVOT’s programs.
