THE LATEST UPDATE:
I am currently on a sabbatical leave from teaching yoga programs.
Since April 2018, I have taken a break from teaching yoga courses and workshops. However, if you are a yoga teacher who is interested in working with me on improving your craft, feel free to contact me and say hi. (You may also like to read my book for yoga teachers.)
In the last 15 years, I taught over 12,500 hours of yoga. As a professional yoga teacher, over the years I’ve got into all aspects of teaching yoga in the modern world: I taught full-time big and small yoga classes, special programs, retreats, and teacher training courses in the USA, Thailand, Germany, Switzerland, China, Indonesia, and Singapore, some in partnership with Absolute Yoga, and some under the banner of my own Yoga Expert Academy education suite. In 2014, with Cherry Wang, we co-created the Beijing’s YIHE42 Yoga Academy.
I’m a bit of an expert on Hot Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and yoga teacher courses. I quit casinos so that I could teach yoga classes full time, serving as an assistant to Jimmy Barkan in the United States. My time with Jimmy led me to create my own style of Hot Yoga, which I called the Hot Yoga Evolution. After I had moved to live in Asia in 2006, I opened, grew and eventually sold my own yoga studio Yoga Evolution Phuket, which enjoyed a 7-year successful run serving thousands of clients. I am grateful for having been able to assist many yoga practitioners, who showed me that teaching and learning are the same.
