I was born in China and grew up in the United States.
My purpose in life is to grow. I grow through teaching, traveling, and playing. I love playing soccer, practicing yoga, and taking photos with my iPhone.
I grow new yoga teachers into successful entrepreneurs by teaching them business skills that help them build wildly successful yoga careers.
Unlike other trainings out there, the stuff I teach is proven, unique, and fun. My knowledge comes from leading teams at bleeding-edge companies like NASA, Apple, and Singularity University.
Similar to BKS Iyengar, I was blessed with injuries.
After straining my shoulder in 20 meter cliff-diving accident, I healed myself through practicing yoga.
I was fortunate to learn from some great teachers like Bryan Kest (studied under Pattabhi Jois), Michelle Chu (studied under Sarah Powers), Tracy Rohan-Irwin (studied under Shiva Rea), and Diana Azavedo (taught at Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre in India).
I completed my RYT 200 in Ubud, Bali and am the resident yoga teacher at K10 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Fun Fact: I brought beer yoga to the Czech Republic. Read about it here
