Takako Uenaka Martin
Born and bred in Japan, I moved to England in the late 1980s and spent almost 20 years in London.
From my first ever Yoga class, I have been hooked by a sense of well-being and inner peace Yoga creates deep within. Since then, I have experimented in the various styles of Yoga, from Hatha, Iyengar, Sivananda, Yin & Yang, and Restorative Yoga to Ashtanga.
Having worked with renowned teachers such as R Alex Medin, David Swenson, John Scott, Judith Hansen Lasater, Carlos Pomeda, Francoise Barbira Freedman, Alaric Newcombe and Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamy, has given me the wonderful insight of Yoga. In my teaching, I try to combine my experience in the different styles of Yoga.
It is quite amazing what your body and mind can achieve through your dedicated practice and you can apply the same dedication to anything in your life!
