Iyengar yoga

with Yuri Uemura


2007年ロンドン留学中にヨガに興味を持ち、帰国後建築を学ぶ傍ヨガを始める。大学、大学院在学中に毎年ニューヨークを訪れヨガの練習を重ね、何よりも情熱を注げるものはヨガだと思い、ヨガについて研究することに。感性工学の修士課程でヨガの練習の表記法を研究する中で2011年にCarrie Owerkoと出会い、アイアンガーヨガを始める。2015年Manouso Manosのもとで学びを深めるためにサンフランシスコへ移住し、アイアンガーヨガのイントロダクトリーII 認定指導員となる。現在もサンフランシスコでManouso ManosAthena Pappas、またニューヨークではCarrie OwerkoLara Warrenのもとで学びを重ねている。




A native of Japan, Yuri has been studying and practicing yoga since 2007, and took the first Iyengar yoga class with Carrie Owerko in New York in 2011 when she was writing a master’s thesis on yoga notation.

She moved to San Francisco in 2015 to study with Manouso Manos, and currently holds Introductory II certification in the Iyengar tradition of yoga. She continues to study with Manouso Manos and Athena Pappas in San Francisco, and Carrie Owerko and Lara Warren in New York. As a teacher, she communicates with her students with concise and effective demonstrations and instructions. Her hope is to hold a space to give inspirations one another, explore the mind and body, transform, and discover who you really are.

In addition to daily practice of yoga, she draws inspirations from art of photography and Japanese tea ceremony.
