“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” ― B.K.S. Iyengar
JuMin, hailing from Taiwan, began practicing yoga over twenty years ago when modern and westernized yoga had yet to truly permeate the yoga culture on the island. JuMin’s first teachers were teaching traditional style asanas infused with Chinese medical thought and theory.
Realizing that yoga created a rhythm and breathing that permeated her life, she began training to teach after four years of practice. After 6 years of training in Taiwan and India, she began to teach in 2003. She has continued training and has thus accumulated over 8000 hours of teaching experience. Her most prominent certifications include both ERYT 500-hour and YACEP Yoga Alliance certificates. She is currently studying Yoga for Scoliosis under the guidance of Elise Browning Miller. As well as Iynegar with Colleen Gallagher and Kathleen Pringle.
In teaching, JuMin emphasizes unification of mind and body, and strives to inspire the student's hearts. The fluidity of her classes allows students to move into deep breathing, thereby continuously circulating energy. Her depth of knowledge comes through in her chanting and cues. Jumin uses her stable and remarkable hand adjustments to support deeper body awareness, injury prevention and proper alignment. She has found that teaching helps improve her understanding of the human being in a unique and profound way. As an ambassador for easyoga in Asia since 2015, JuMin’s travels allow her to bridge the future of yoga from Asia and the US, conveying diverse fields of knowledge and styles for her student.
