About Self Body Make


Self Body Make (SBM) is a phrase invented by Yuriko, a fashion model and the founder of LILY & GOLD TOKYO, school for Self Body Make.

The name speaks for itself- SBM literally means ‘making your own body.’ It is a set of simple, self-curing exercises for your back and neck by using a special SBM pillow. 

The exercise will gradually correct the position of pelvis, leading to correction of balance disorders and muscle imbalances.     

The beauty of SBM is not only acquiring the art of self-dependence and learning the joy of this exercise, but also the transformation from within and outside of one’s body.    

The theory of SBM is profound. The more you exercise, the more you will discover. No matter what your age is, you can evolve your body and mind through SBM.

I have no doubt that the confidence, braveness, and SBM exercise you taught me would bring me happiness wherever I go in the future.

SBm Graduation tesimonial

Here's what clients and graduates are saying about SBM lesson.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After tackling family issues I had been avoiding for years while back in Japan, I returned to London with a fresh mind, vowing to myself it would be my turn to find happiness by detoxing both my mind and body. The first day I returned to SBM class Mika declared my graduation. Now that was totally out of the blue. “Please Mika, I don’t want to leave just yet!” I begged for an extension, because I felt I was far from being ready to graduate.



Six years ago I was transferred to the London Office of the bank I had been working for. Approximately six months after the internal transfer, I was introduced to SBM by my colleague from my previous workplace. Back then I had a habit of torturing my body without taking rest to get a sense of euphoric high through tough endurance physical exercise, such as long-distance triathlons. As a result, I had menopause, back pain, and sharp pain in my toes and fingers for no apparent reason. What’s more, I was seen by a psychiatrist for almost a year for what seemed to be a depression caused by fatigue. The only thing I thought I was good at and could shine at were hard workouts. The fact that I was unable to work out, let alone feeling unmotivated to, made me shattered.      

For nearly a year I would pay a visit to any chiropractor with the reputation of having “God’s hands”. I was therefore in a desperate state by the time I was introduced to SBM. 



I fell badly while skiing and developed a herniated disk in my twenties. In addition I used to abuse my back by taking part in long-distance cycling races. Maybe all these factors contributed to thin, fragile intervertebral discs. The back exercise part of SBM was therefore very painful at first, and my back was rigid. Because I was right handed, I had been putting so much toll on my right side of the body through playing lacrosse over the years. And that had seemed to contribute to the sharp pain I felt above my right scapula towards the end of the back exercise. I was once told by a chiropractor with so-called “God’s hands” that I was extremely patient and tolerant to pain.  My muscles were so stiff that he couldn’t work to their cores. He concluded by saying “Being tolerant sounds like a good thing. But on the contrary, you wouldn’t be able to hear your body when it screams for help. Do be careful.” So I was officially tolerant to pain. But the pain brought on by SBM was so intense that it reduced me to tears.



I cannot recall when exactly and how many times I felt it, but after almost five-and-a-half years of practicing SBM, I realised I was going through changes in my mindset. I started SBM to cure my body. Even though my back was starting to stabilise, it needed more work. I felt extremely cold while doing the neck exercise and probably felt that sense of coldness longer than other people. And that made me blame myself for not being good enough and not working hard enough. I am a Japanese. Together with a long track record of playing sports as a team member for years, I was proud of possessing high sense of responsibility. I was taking myself too seriously both in and outside of work. I felt highly stressed when I saw people who were too relaxed and not taking things seriously. I overestimated my tolerance level and was overconfident that I could handle stress easily. That made things worse gradually. Whenever I felt stress, I felt an acute pain at the back of my neck to the point I literally felt as if my eyes and teeth were going to drop. I also felt nausea and intense migraine at the same time. And to top it off, I had a severe back pain which forced me to lie in bed for few days. According to Mika who checked my body at the time, my neck was unstable as if my head was going to fall off. All these symptoms were the signs of my body screaming for help, thanks to SBM. It was then that my mind was gradually shifting to the point that I was starting to feel kind to myself and to others. Such a mind shift was not easy, but I was starting to pat my back by feeling proud of myself for taking each day as it came, fighting alone in a foreign country. This was not only owing to Mika and for her instructions that stress was the worst enemy within oneself, but it was also thanks to others’ help.

I typically attended classes in the evenings, where I would meet 3 other single working girls like myself. They all had respective challenges in life and by knowing everyone was doing her best, watching them transforming both their physiques and minds for the better, and sharing the journey of transformation bonded us as if we were all one big family with Mika as the head. (I am sorry if that is just my own imagination!) My loneliness in this country healed immensely. On that note, I thank Mika and all my classmates from the bottom of my heart. I am truly lost for words. If I did not come across SBM six years ago, I wouldn’t have managed to survive all this time. These six years didn’t fly past me for nothing- these six years were meant to be. I could proudly say so because my mind has become much healthier over the years. SBM certainly worked both within and outside my body. I have ditched my life motto: “life is full of hardships” and have converted to believe in “being kind to oneself”. I have discovered that happiness is to live each day with respect and by enjoying life. My graduation couldn’t have come at a better time.  

Dear Mika, I am grateful for your kindness and no-nonsense strictness throughout your instruction. I have no doubt that the confidence, braveness, and SBM exercise you taught me would bring me happiness wherever I go in the future. I thank you in advance for your continued support.

I wanted to cure my ‘hunchback’ so I decided to start SBM

Clients voice SBM detox seminar.



Thank you for the 5-hour SBM detox seminar.
Even though it was for a couple of days, I experienced fasting for the first time in my life. What’s more, refraining from smoking and drinking coffee was mind-changing.

I started SBM purely because I wanted to cure my hunchback.

I did the exercise at my own pace but physical changes were happening slowly but surely. And the fact that I was sensing these changes was a signal to the next step.

The theme of the 5-hour event was to “release tension and relax”.
And the key onomatopoeia was ‘funya-funya’, the state of loosen up. I wasn’t uttering ‘funya-funya’ during the session, but replaying the phrase in my mind helping to stablise my pace while exercising.

Most importantly, the aim of attending this event was to change my attitude towards binge eating and quitting cigarettes. And it worked wonders. 

My work does not allow me to eat regularly, and I was fine with just one meal a day- or so I thought. In fact, quitting my so-called ‘staple foods` which I would take from dawn to dusk, namely coffee and cigarettes, seemed more daunting. Now I am few days in since I gave up the two. Hopefully I will stay this way. It would be fantastic if I could give up smoking for good. This event made me rethink my work-life balance and the significance of healthy diet and sleeping well. Let’s hope this seminar has been the turning point for me to improve my body over the coming months.

SBM detox seminar would be a great motivation to continue SBM!

34th SBM Detox seminar was held in Tokyo on 13th May. Everyone succeeded in completing the 5.5hours SBM. That is an amazing thing.

Here is our client's voice who attended the SBM detox seminar in London last October.
During SBM session had some symptoms!



How I longed for this moment to arrive- I managed to take part in this event for the first time.
I was apprehensive whether I could get up after the 5-hour SBM session. It turned out I was constantly battling sleepiness throughout. And the pain on my right shoulder was coming back, making me realise it had not fully healed.

Some other symptoms were also sensed during the session, but I felt extremely good with merely a slight pain in my body towards the end. I was proud of accomplishing the big milestone.

Being reminded “one’s body and heart are connected” through this event would be a great motivation to continue SBM. My current, deformed body is the result of incorrect life choices I was making on a daily basis. Going forward I would like to look back on such bad habits and tackle them one by one.  Such tiny, daily efforts will no doubt be the simplest, yet time-efficient way to transform my body. I am grateful of Mika and everybody whom I met through SBM for making me realise this and would like to thank them sincerely.

Practicing SBM is facing myself


SBM Lesson Client's voice after trial Lesson
Continued from
1. I was spending everyday having difficulty walking
2. I did realize that I had not been seriously dealing with SBM on one excuse or another.


As a result of my deliberation, I made up my mind that I would quit SBM if fasting would not bring about any favourable changes. I thought this sort of determination was necessary not to go back to the previous situation where I found excuses and felt self-satisfied in spending time by only practicing exercises. I performed fasting first time in my life for three days, and now, I am paying serious attention to how much to eat, when to eat, what to eat and not to eat.

My dealing with exercises has also changed. I have come to believe in myself that is changed and changing through SBM.

Practicing SBM is facing myself. The best things I have got from practicing SBM are not only improved conditions of my body but also realization of my spiritual weakness and shortcomings. I have a lot to do to aim for the upper pillow stage. In particular, I have to do more neck movement to improve my upper body conditions. My determination is to continue to SBM with my cured body so as to "obtain firmly axis-ed body and mind" which Yuriko sensei is advocating in her home page. Finally I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mika for her kind and well thought -out instructions.

I did realize that I had not been seriously dealing with SBM on one excuse or another.

SBM Lesson Client's voice after trial lesson  
Continued from Yesterday.
I was spending everyday having difficulty walking 


When I took up SBM, my right hand never reached an SBM pillow. I was not sure whether a day would come when I would be able to practice exercised grasping a pillow. After practicing for a few month, to my delight, I became capable of grasping a pillow. I gradually came to feel better and proceed to the middle class pillow practice. I should have kept this favourable change going on, but I feel into a cycle of increase and decrease of my weight.

I was spiritually weak, always finding excuses such as "I am not practicing this exercise to lose weight." And As long as I practice exercises everyday, my bone structure would change and I would eventually lose weight. I was lenient with myself. My eating habit and practicing exercises were two separated things. Meanwhile, a new problem of my life came up and I had an opportunity to review my ways of life including SBM.I asked Mika to take the trouble to make a copy of my body size records. When I carefully examined it and faced the reality of my weight rebounding that was exhibited in stark figures, I did realize that I had not been seriously dealing with SBM on one excuse or another. At the same time, I felt sorry for such posture of me to SBM

I was spending everyday having difficulty walking.....

SBM Trial Lesson  - Client's Voice


From long ago I was conscious that my body was slightly distorted. Until recently I had tried various methods of exercise to get over my problem. But I could not get any good results despite my repeated efforts. The way I walked was walking with a slight limp. In particular, after giving birth to my daughter, the situation got worse. I was spending every day having difficulty walking. Just then, I came across SBM and had a trial lesson.

The next day after the lesson to my surprise, I found myself smoothly walking.
My instinct told me " That is it". Around the time, I was at the crossroads of my life, and I might eventually have some financial problems. For this reason, it took some time before I came to the decision to take up SBM lesson. Now I am really certain that I made right decision.

Around then, I chronically had a headache, stiff shoulders, backache, numbness of my big toe, the splitting of my little toenail and so on. As far as they were concerned, there were no symptoms that might be diagnosed as serious diseases. However, in the past, I also had repeatedly suffered from vomiting due to a headache and stabbing pain in my right shoulder, which was so intense that I could hardly breath and forced me to take rest for hours while at work. I was feeling a lurking anxiety about my future health.

My inherited high-arched foot had nearly disappeared after 10 months SBM



 The High-Arched Foot - from MVP2016 voice



Ten months after I started taking the SBM class, the pain of my slipped disc in addition to some slight health problems such as migraine and irregular periods had alleviated and almost diminished. 

What’s more, my inherited high-arched foot had nearly disappeared, despite many treatments and rehabilitations from childhood and an unsuccessful surgery in the past.

All these were astonishing. I think SBM is a great range of exercises. Mika and other people in the class are friendly so I can learn not only about the exercises but also many things about career and life.

Doing SBM exercises every single day and taking SBM classes have become very important and pleasant routine of my life. I’m thankful and happy to be awarded MVP 2016. I appreciate everyone’s support. I’m so glad I’ve taken part in the SBM exercise class. I’ve got the support that I can rely on so I believe not only my mind and body will be in much better condition but also my life and career will improve next year. I look forward to improving my SBM skills as well as meeting Mika and my classmates in future sessions. As I’m very pleased about the condition of my health, my ambition for the New Year includes seeking improvements in my personal beauty!
