About All-1 Yoga, and me

Hi, my name is Elton. I teach the All-1 Yoga classes.

I am from California. I started doing yoga there when I was in junior high school, about 40 years ago. Back then, there was only Hatha Yoga. My first teacher was from India. Balancing rest and activity were very important in his classes. 


Since then, I have studied many kinds of yoga. And for many years, I did yoga by myself, and learned to listen to my body and let it be my teacher.


In the All-1 Yoga class we stretch, twist, bend, rest, breathe, build strength and muscle tone, and work on balance. In the classes there are students from 19 to 72 years old. Yoga really is for every body, and for all ages.

I first came to Japan in 1994. Besides teaching yoga, I also teach English. At other times, I have been a businessman, manager, salesman, camp leader, carpenter, painter, cook, baker, and a few other things. I was also in a movie here in Japan, Dakishimetai.


Before Japan, I also lived in Indonesia and Mexico. I can speak English, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese.


When I am not doing yoga, I enjoy time with my wife and son, take walks, go cycling, hiking and camping, and enjoy learning about many things.

I hope you'll come and try one of my All-1 Yoga classes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
