I am here to raise the consciousness of humanity with you by turning towards embodiment of sacred union between light and shadow, heaven and earth, masculine and feminine, me and all beings, I am and the One…


The Akari’s yogic practice embraces the graceful series of mantra, mudra, asana, pranayama, and meditation towards embodiment of consciousness within every breath, feelings and awareness.


Kirtan is call-and-response style chanting of Sanskrit mantras to expand towards infinite love with uplifting music support. Mantra is subtle sound vibration and ancient yogic technique to transcends the state of mind to the state of unified bliss.


I love Akari's Voice, her Energy, her Kirtan, her yoga classes and her whole being. I go to her Kirtans all the time and i was lucky to attend her Kirtan Workshop. If you love Kirtan and if you wanna dive deeper into it, learn more about the Mantras, the Deities, the songs and their stories, open your voice, gain more openness and confidence in singing than go to this workshop. We had beautiful 3 days together with so much joy and singing from the heart. And Akari has such a bug knowledge and wisdom about yoga and mantras, its so inspiring to listen to her. I am feeling super thankful for this opportunity. Thank you Akari ♥

I was happy to sign up for a YTT because I thought it should be very physically challenging. What I didn’t realize was the big amount of meditation and philosophy that came with the course. I’m very grateful for that part because I think that was what I needed and have been looking for - a way to live my life and find my purpose, to realize how much impact my thoughts have and I can try to detach myself with my thoughts through meditation. Akari saw every students and encouraged us to develop at our own level. Akari has a lot of knowledge and I’m so grateful for her love and support, every adjustments in asana class and heart-filled lectures.

Yoga Teacher Training with Akari is one of the best decisions I have made this past year. Akari embodies what Yoga is, which is focusing on the inner practice as much if not more than the outer practice (asanas). Akari is able to take students beyond the student’s own expectations and abilities. She is able to help students find the hidden gem within. She does this with love and believing in us. Akari has many years of experience and knowledge allowing her to offer teaching with an umbrella of information. I have many tools in my yoga bag now because Akari has taught this out and is passionate about spreading the truth of yoga.

Akari, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the yoga teacher training. Your dedication to helping us grow and understand the very massive learnings of yoga. I really learnt so much more then I thought I was going to. Your ability to cater to different personalities and energies is amazing. The time you put into the resources you gave us and the structure of the course was above and beyond and did not go unnoticed you really did exceed my expectations. Thank you for not only helping me understand how to teach but you helped me through some pretty intense emotional times and made me face them head on. You are truly a magical person and I can only thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Since the first class I took with Akari, I felt really comfortable. I felt Akari shares her class deeply from her heart, so I could relax and connect. Akari makes students to be confident doing their practice, even for beginners. She explains the basics very clearly, and also give more advanced options if someone wants to go deep, but without forcing anybody in the classroom. She seems self-confident sharing the practice. But the most important thing is that Akari shares peace and love from her heart and this is what I love about it.

We attended a 4 day workshop on Pranayama led by Akari, set in a wonderful, peaceful, natural landscape. Akari was an excellent teacher and showed us several techniques, with very useful background information on the topic. She was very knowledgeable, accessible, articulate and patient. My partner has a background in yoga and I was approaching it from a mindfulness perspective, and we both found the content and delivery to be a fantastic introduction to this subject. Since then we've been practicing and sharing Pranayama with others in our home town, as we were so enthused and impressed by Akari's example of being a genuine Yogi. Anyone who has the opportunity to learn about Yoga with Akari is wise to take up the chance. They will be able to develop and help themselves and others.

Akari is a daughter, sister, and mother of Gaia. Her soul speaks the sounds of the Earth and transcends a space into a sacred place where all can connect with their inner being and outer space. The space she holds for everyone during Kirtan and the music she leaves in your heart is a divine gift. Gratitude, thank you!
