About The Teacher
Originally from Japan, Akari Tamura is a dedicated yogini and a lover of Truth, known for her inspirational style of teaching and self-expression towards healing, love, and empowerment.
Akari has a unique way to inspire students all around the world by transmitting embodied wisdom from the heart. Incorporating the vibrational power of spiritual heart through Sankalpa (heart-felt intention) and Bhavana (deepest feeling in the moment), Akari creates and holds a sacred space for student’s both outer-physical and inner-spiritual journey.
Since 2006, she has devoted years of study in traditional Hatha Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Hinduism, Jnana Yoga (meditation, self-inquiry), Advaita (non-duality), Tibetan Buddhism, and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. With great respect to all lineages, she began teaching internationally in 2013, and has taught classes, workshops, retreats and teacher training courses in Australia, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, India, France, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. Akari’s teaching encompasses asana, pranayama, vinyasa, meditation, Tantra, physical yoga anatomy, energy anatomy, self-enquiry, meditation, mudra, mantra, mythology and a vast knowledge of yogic philosophy.
Apart from yoga teacher, Akari is also a well-known Kirtan leader with decade’s long background of classical music study. Akari feels that music is a way to connect to the center of our vastness, just like how it was for the purpose of liberation at Vedic time in India. Akari’s other background includes a degree in sociology, several years of humanitarian work in Africa and SE Asia, knowledge of permaculture design with experience of living off-grid, extensive training and working experience in theta healing, aromatherapy, herbalism, massage and bodywork.
Akari’s dharma (soul purpose) is to elevate the consciousness of humanity towards expansive love of our true nature through practice of yoga, art of music, power of intentions, radical affirmation of both light and shadow within, and becoming a true channel of our full potentiality for the world that we love to create. Walking on this yogic path with gratitude, Akari is passionate to share the beauty of cherishing the most intimate relationship within all of us – between me and the Divine. Home is where thy heart is.
To become the channel of light (prana) in the lotus flowers (7 chakras) unfolding is the highest vision!
