"Peace comes from within, do not seek it without." - Buddha
Julie began her yoga practice in 2003 in Boston, Massachusetts, in the United States. She studied at the Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Studios where she practiced Power Vinyasa Yoga, a dynamic flow, which synchronizes breathing and movement. Julie also apprenticed as a teacher’s assistant at Prana Power Yoga in Boston where she learnt how to guide, nurture and help students deepen their practice. It was here that she began to appreciate and understand the connection and energy between the student and the teacher.
Julie trained as a teacher in Bali, Indonesia at Shakti Spirit Yoga with Rachel Hull. Along with a strong Ayurvedic component, the course taught a much gentler form of Vinyasa Flow Yoga, focusing on safety and touching upon yoga as a form of physical therapy. Most recently, she completed an advanced vinyasa intensive under the guidance of Edward Clark and Nikki Durrant of Tripsichore Yoga.
Julie is a Yoga Alliance Registered teacher at the 200 hour level (RYT200). Today, Julie incorporates all of her past experiences into her teaching style. She teaches Hatha Yoga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Nidra. She teaches students at all levels including those who have never practiced yoga before. She hopes that students will walk away from her classes with a sense of peace, joy and positivity.
Kathrin’s Yoga journey started several years ago with classical Hatha Yoga while living in India. At Sivananda Centres and Ashrams in Delhi and Kerala she experienced all the wonderful balancing and nurturing effects Yoga has on the body and mind.
Continuing her practice in Germany and Vietnam, she was blessed to meet and learn from inspiring teachers from other Yoga traditions, including Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga (e.g. Patricia Thielemann-Kapell, Daphne Chua). Realizing that Yoga is what she wants to share with other people, Kathrin completed her Teacher Training under Swami Mahadevananda in Thailand in 2012. She also has a teachers’ certificate in Childrens’ Yoga from Amanda Reeds’ Samadhi Family Yoga, and was trained in traditional Thai Massage at Siam Healing Centre in Thailand.
In her classes, Kathrin seeks to integrate the energizing aspects of Vinyasa Flow and the soothing effects of Yin Yoga with classical Sivananda Hatha Yoga to create a nurturing, balanced and holistic practice. She places great emphasis on proper breathing and increased flexibility of the spine: "flexible spine, flexible mind."
Luang Prabang native, Khoun, trained as a teacher in Bangkok at Yoga Elements Studio with Adrian Cox. Khoun has a love for yoga that is apparent in the genuine energy that she brings to her classes. She has practiced Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow, which she combines to create classes that are both strong and relaxing at the same time.
Khoun guides her students through their practice with dedication and precision, which means that while she is nurturing, she also focuses on proper alignment techniques. Students in Khoun's classes will be gently encouraged to find their edge and to practice steadily around this edge.
Khoun often makes use of props and wall exercises as tools for finding the correct alignment. Her classes are suitable for students of all levels, including complete beginners. She has played an active role in introducing yoga to the local community. Students will be challenged and energized, but most importantly, they will connect with the feeling of overall wellbeing and content.

Antje practiced different types of yoga for 15 years until she moved to Thailand for a job. In Chiang Mai she started practicing Ashtanga and Vinyasa on a regular basis and only then did the Prana really hit her and she understood what is meant by 'Yoga is something I am, not something I do'. She wanted to learn more about the philosophy behind this movement therapy and spread the Love. Numerous workshops and the iflow Teacher Training in Ubud, Bali with Amy Pastore gave her the knowledge and courage to find 'her kind of yoga' and teach it. Antje's teaching style is fluid, modern, playful and dancy, reflecting the many sports and different types of yoga that have influenced her practice. She has been teaching yoga locally and internationally since 2013. Her classes are a perfect balance between intensity and centering and will leave students feeling high and smiling for hours.

My name is Sansany, I am from Laos and I am a yoga teacher. My journey to yoga started in 2008 when I took my first class. Two years later I joined another class in Thailand and a few more classes in Luang Prabang, but it wasn’t until 2014, when I was in Luxembourg, that I bought my first yoga mat. I did self-practice every day with Youtube videos and I fell in love with yoga. After one month I felt stronger and I saw myself progress through new poses while I was doing 30 day yoga challenge videos. A yoga teacher friend from Egypt inspired me to study to become a yoga teacher. I did my first six day yoga retreat in Luang Prabang in 2016, then completed a 6 week teacher training program in Chiang Mai, Thailand in July, 2017. I now work as front office manager at a charming hotel, and I love my job, but I also love yoga and want to teach and help others find the same joy that I have found. My favorite style is Vinyasa flow. I hope to see you in a yoga class soon. Namaste.
