YOGA & Gayoung

I was introduced to yoga by my mother, a Hatha yoga teacher, when l was 12-13 years old. I remember I was always so proud seeing my mother dedicate herself to keep learning and make people feel better through yoga. I learned from her how yoga empowers people and brings positive changes in their lives and the lives of people around them. So it was only natural that I followed in my mom's footsteps and started teaching yoga myself. In 2012 I earned the Yoga Instructor qualification from the Korea Yoga Instructor Association, and in 2018 I followed the 200-hr Ashtanga Yoga teacher training. Since then I taught group classes in Yoga Room, Brussels Yoga Loft and World Class Fitness. I started to practise the Mysore style at Ashtanga Yoga Brussels under the guidance of Anne and Lynne Pinette. In January 2020, I made my first trip to Mysore to study with Sharath Jois. After I moved to London in early 2020, I keep my practice at Astanga Yoga London with Hamish Hendry. At the moment I teach private lessons in person and via Zoom.  

Me off the Mat

I was born in Korea in the year of tiger. When I was 18 I left Korea and lived and worked in 5 continents before moving to Belgium in 2012 and to the UK in 2020.  I have a master's degree in applied anthropology and international development. I've worked as a hotel receptionist, programme manager for international development projects, and market research analyst at international trade centres. My favourite activities are scuba diving, reading and travelling.
