Teacher Profile | Balance
Tony-Lyn Takagi
I first originally started a somewhat regular practice of yoga in 2003 purely for the physical effects. After years of dance my body needed something a little more gentle yet challenging at the same time. It was not until I had my first child in 2010 and a bout with postpartum anxiety that the lightbulb went off and I realized yoga was not only a workout for the body but it was also a workout for the mind, spirit and soul. From that moment on my somewhat regular practice went to a full on consistent practice ever since. Even though I have a passion for health and wellness I was a little hesitant to take the leap and get my yoga teacher certification. I initially took my children's yoga teacher training through Rainbow Kids Yoga in 2016 and started volunteering in my children's classroom teaching. In May 2018 I completed the 200 hour YTT Hatha based program through SWIHA and have been certified in pre-natal yoga. Along with my CYT-200 I have a B.S in Cardiopulmonary Science through Northeastern University. Along with a number of years in the Food and Beverage Industry which I feel prepares you to work with every type of person, I have worked for after school programs and summer camps in Los Angeles teaching Pilates and health cooking classes for children. I have also worked in spas and salons as a massage therapist and work on my own private clients as well. With yoga I hope to teach people that anyone can do yoga, sometimes yoga is just finding that small moment of calm in the middle of chaos. When I am not on my mat you can find me hanging out with my husband, our two children and our dog Ruby. I also enjoy hiking, reading a good book and a good glass of wine.
