Instructors

Bhud Suriyasongsaeng
Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200 (Yoga)
Bhud has been a yoga practitioner for more than 25 years and sharing her experience of yoga in many of its various forms with students for over 10 years. For her, yoga is a fundamental guiding toward self-love and holistic yogic living. Her focus of teaching includes ways of bringing more awareness to what is happening inside you as you practice, which encourages the body to unravel into yoga positions from within, rather than having to be pushed or pulled into them from without. Therefore, the body creates least tension and effort.
