05. Teacher

Lead teacher: Tom Wada (E-RYT500):

Born in Japan and raised in Chicago, Tom has been practicing yoga for 20 years and has been teaching the RYT200/300 courses for over 5 years.

Tom’s unique English/Japanese instruction seeks to heal this division by helping clients join Yang (energetic) and Yin (calming) giving life and body more power, direction and energy.

Tom’s methodology integrates Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bikram and Hatha yoga as well as Vipassana meditation. Tom received his ERYT200/ ERYT500 certification in Dharamshala India, and have studied under John Scott and Ken Harakuma.

Tom believes that one source of stress in modern life is the division between body and spirit. Yoga not only brings flexibility to your body, it can help calm the mind and raise creativity in your life. Many studies have proven that yoga and meditation are great compliments to a busy daily lifestyle.
