Hi, apple eaters and those who don’t eat apples (I think that covers everyone). Welcome.
I am an orphan, alone; I am found everywhere.I am one, but opposed to myself. I am youth and old man at one and the same time. I have no neither father nor mother, because I have had to be fetched out of the deep like a fish, or fell like a white stone from heaven. In the woods and mountains I roam, but I am hidden in the innermost soul of man. I am mortal for everyone, yet I am not touched by the cycle of aeona. ~C.G. Jung
I Do Yoga and Teach Yoga
Talk with me about yoga and/or about how to teach yoga, if you’re into it. I am an experienced practitioner and teacher; in the past 15 years, I taught over 12,500 hours of yoga classes, retreats, teacher training, and workshops. I’m registered at the advanced level with the Yoga Alliance (ERYT-200) and as a Continued Education Provider (YACEP) for yoga teachers.
I am currently on a sabbatical leave from teaching yoga programs. I sold my yoga studio in Phuket to a new owner in 2015. My Yoga Expert Academy doesn’t offer any teacher programs until further notice. However, if you are a yoga teacher who is interested in working with me on improving your craft, feel free to contact me and I will help you if I can.
My Book Is Published
I’ve spent time studying and teaching body language and tonality, which need to be incorporated as skills by any competent yoga teacher, educator, or speaker.
I wrote the book titled “Your Voice, Your Success”, which is available on Amazon.
Wellness and Longevity
I work at Atmanjai in Thailand as a detox consultant.
I continue to study with the good doctors: Dr. Bernard Jensen, Dr. Robert Morse, Dr. Viktor Frankl, Dr. Michael Greger, and Dr. John E. Sarno, as well as the good teachers: Fr. Sebastian Kneipp, Prof. Arnold Ehret, C.G. Jung, and H. Hotema.
My past teachers have been shaping my professional background as well as who I am today as a man. 15 years in casinos and 15 years of teaching yoga have been a great course in psychology and human behavior. Also, I must bow and thank my parents, grandparents, J. Krishnamurti, O.M. Aivanhov, Dr. Hew Len Ihaleakala, P. Yogananda, Serge Augier, Andrew Chung, Jimmy Barkan, Cesar Millan, Gordon Ramsay, Patsy Rodenburg, and L. Tolstoy.
Detox, Cleanse, Diet
The abdomen is the reason why man does not easily take himself for a god. ~ F. Nietzsche
If you can’t remember when the last time was that you felt truly healthy, talk to me about that. If you’re confused about what to eat and how/when to eat, talk to me about that, too.
The effects of my programs and counseling are transformative: chronic health problems disappear, extra weight drops away, and a youthful vitality will be returned to you. I’m using Dr. Bernard Jensen’s Bowel Management for Tissue Cleansing and Dr. Christopher’s 3-day Cleanse methods adapted to your personal needs.
I can prepare a detox program for you to do at home.
My experience dealing with a broad range of human behavior is rather extensive, due to my past employment as a problem-solver. My career has been filled with different experiences; for 15 years, I was involved in casino operations, professional gambling, and serious poker. Casinos taught me many things, one of them is how to thrive under pressure. I became an expert casino dealer and trainer.
My casino jobs had me change places a lot, from Moscow to Monte Carlo to Miami. I adapt to new circumstances quickly and easily.
An Ordinary Man
I’m a bad guy but I’m trying not to be—and that’s something good.
I am an ordinary person; I live a fulfilled life. Perhaps because I am now in my late 40’s; my conscious and unconscious have learned to complement each other, living in peace. I know there are higher things than my ego’s will and to these I must bow. In the second half of my life, I have become whole, calm, and healthy.
I Do Many Things
I am a writer, a yoga and meditation teacher, a regenerative detox consultant, a weight loss specialist and food counselor, a dog behavior-trainer, and a theoretical philosopher. I have a keen interest in:
- some particular aspects of good/bad health
- the understanding of the Western world’s current obsession with food
- yogic, Taoist, and Christian practices for human transformation
- psychology, especially Jungian
- existentialism, esp. through Nietzsche and Dostoyevsky
- Renaissance art
- Judeo-Christian ethics
- and I am not a fan of postmodernism, totalitarianism, fascism, communism, feminism, Marxism, and any sort of identity politics.
