「It would be wonderful if we get to know and support each other through yoga.」
Welcome to Team Yoga. Yoga is beneficial for your life in many aspects. We have different experiences and paths, but have something in common that is Yoga. Yoga is our core, gathering us all together. That is Team Yoga.

We would like to introduce who we are.

University of Tsukuba, Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences, and TIAS Professor Randeep Rakwal has been involved in the research of metabolites, proteins, and genes, in plant and animal/human systems, as part of the holistic “omics” approach. Holistic, is a keyword, and all these molecules combined make the system/body work as a whole. It has arrived at the same point as to the root of Yoga thought that the flow of things as a whole is one.

Research Institute of Zen and Yoga, Genboku Takahashi has been practicing Yoga and Zen for 56 years since he was 19-years old. He worked on the satisfaction of meaning of life and how to get it. He also has been inspired not only by Yoga and Zen but also integrated understanding of Japan and Oriental body techniques leading to Qigong.

Miho Komatsu has graduated from University of Tsukuba and is currently working as an occupational health care provider. She has been considering what Yoga is as for every daily life, and having a good harmony of the mental and body health for humans.

Yoshitaka Komatsu, a volunteer-supporter, and is in charge of the homepage is studying environmental science (hydrology) as a PhD scholar of Graduate school of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba. He has experienced severe deadlocks and conflict during his research, and he encountered Yoga in the process of overcoming the depression. Now, he cannot miss Yoga as a daily life routine.

Yuto Matoba is an undergraduate student in the College of Comparative Culture, University of Tsukuba. He is majoring in western and oriental philosophy. Having an interest in oriental physical and mental practices such as martial arts and Zen since his high school days, he started practicing Yoga after entering the university. Took a license of a Yoga Instructor in India, and now teaches and practices.

Yoriko Matsumoto, through her experiences, researches yoga for depression and yoga for athlete. It would be nice to combine yoga with training or treatment. Director of Narita Yoga/Yoga for Depression.

As you read we all have different interests and path. We met each other through Yoga and made Team Yoga to support you and spread the seed of Yoga.
