Certified Yoga Teacher, Thai Massage & Wellness Therapist

I keep track of your personal progress each time we meet to help develop a safety self-directed yoga practice, self-discipline and self-empowerment skills for you to be able to independently overcome obstacles on and off the yoga mat with your pace, strength and flexibility because your body is unique.

I am Buddhist and have been practice mindfulness since I was young. I also follow the methodology of transformation technique from the Ashtanga Yoga method and discipline as the perfect path for me to live a balanced and mindful life style in the modern age. I first introduced to Ashtanga Yoga in Bangkok Thailand in 1992. Ashtanga yoga practice taught me how to utilize my inborn ability to overcome obstacles and detach from sufferings with insights and disciplines.

My yoga teachings and wellness coaching derive from the fundamental principle that the approach and plan must always be adapted to an individual's changing needs in order to derive the maximum therapeutic benefit and balanced well-being. I use the science of yoga approach to better guide you to be aware of your body anatomy and understand the effectiveness of yoga practice for your life time benefit as you continue the yoga practice as a natural self-preventative care. 

You will find that my teaching and coaching also  influence by  my inherent of Buddhist & Hindu philosophies, ancient methods of Thai Yoga massage, Chinese medicine and remedies that I learned from my half Thai-Chinese grandmother and my mother who is a certified herbalist in Thailand. I use available local resources in order to carry on the traditions and share what I know to help you reach your balanced wellness goal.

 I was born and grew up in Bangkok, Thailand where my yoga practice was Ashtanga Yoga influential in addition to following Buhddha teaching. I started yoga early at my young age in a public elementary school in Thailand when every Friday is a mindfulness day and entire school sit down to chant/pray in Pali-Sanskrit and meditate for one hour before we go home.

I am an on going student of Ashtanga Yoga, studying and taking workshops with authorized Ashtanga yoga teachers as well as practice with R.Sarath Jois in the U.S., David Williams, David Swenson, Krista Shirley and I have not yet been to Mysore, India where the root of Ashtanga yoga is.
