Who We Are

Our yoga journey began from Japan in 2005

UTL Tokyo and KL
Our yoga journey began when our Parent Company, UTL Inc ( UNDER THE LIGHT YOGA INC), launched its yoga school in Yoyogi, Tokyo.
Today, we are one of Asia's largest Yoga Alliance teacher training schools with over 1000 RYT200 certified yoga graduates.
Since then, we've built beautiful relationships with international yoga instructors, which allowed us to organize special workshops, events, and Yoga Alliance-certified teacher training courses.

Going virtual in 2020 - The new aproach to yoga classes

In 2020, we launched our online platform, “OMTOGETHER,” to provide online yoga classes to our community during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Through our live online yoga classes, students and teachers can interact and practice yoga together, which builds togetherness amidst the pandemic. Better yet, we get to practice with our friends around the globe via this virtual platform!

1-on-1 - More interactive, More personal

After going through 2 years of the Covid-19 pandemic, we discovered that online group classes could be challenging for some who struggle with injuries and different body conditions.
From this, we decided to offer 1-on-1 yoga classes to individuals across the globe for a more interactive and personal experience during online yoga classes.
Namaste 🙏


Jimmy - Founder 

Jimmy's yoga journey began in April 2004 while working for a company that operated a chain of yoga studios across Japan. His initial step into a yoga class was to understand the practice from a business perspective. However, it wasn't long before he discovered the personal benefits — the mat became a place of focus and solace, a space to quiet the daily concerns.
He maintained a consistent practice for 18 years, yet progression was elusive due to persistent lower back pain from a childhood injury. The pandemic brought an unexpected turn; it led him to explore online one-on-one yoga sessions. This personalized approach was transformative. With dedicated guidance and feedback from his teachers, Jimmy found significant improvement in his practice.

Joanne - Content Marketing

Joanne came into contact with yoga when joined her group of friends for a group yoga session 10 years ago when she was in her early 20s. She knew immediately that yoga was something that she prefers to adapt into her lifestyle as it was a form of mental training, not just physical training.
However, due to her hectic work lifestyle, she could not keep up with regular practice. She finds it hard to progress in yoga asanas as she will practice consistently for a frame of time, and then stop practicing due to work deadlines or personal matters. There was also no proper system as she was following random group flow classes in various yoga studios and gyms.
She discovered that with 1 on 1 attention from a yoga teacher, there is better focus on improving each pose and refining it, rather than merely following others just to keep up. She is able to practice according to her own pace and needs as well as work on her asanas slowly, patiently with proper guidance from her 1on1 yoga teacher.
