Tomoyo Taguchi

Position:Yoga Instuctor
Tomo started her yoga practice when her lower back pain started taking a toll on her life. After leaving a busy life full of work in northern California, she moved down south to start a new life, and found yoga again. Unlike heated yoga that she had started off practicing, this time was non-heated, which brought her awareness of the body and mind connection to a different level. By generating the heat from inside of the body, this helped guide her into a deeper level of healing. She decide to take 200hr and 300hr teacher training (she is currently 500 hour certified) through YogaWorks, where she practiced her yoga daily, and continued her education through a series of workshops, such as Maty Ezraty’s intensive teacher training. Her teaching style focuses on alignment of the body with a mixture of slow vinyasa flow, so it is safer for the body to find the range of motion and its own edge. “It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of mind, self, and intelligence.” by B.K.S. Iyengar is her favorite quote. Additionally, she is an Usui Reiki Master practitioner and loves to practice reiki in the service of helping people. Tomo is fluent in Japanese and will be teaching yoga in Japanese at Caffe Yoga.
