About The Teacher
Lek Kittikunadul was born and raised in Bangkok. While completing a Master's degree in Computer Art at the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco, he had his first experiences in yoga at the Integral Yoga Institute in San Francisco in 1995 and fell in love with yoga right away. After the death of his partner he decided to follow his heart and his passion and decided to go to India to attend a 200 hour yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Centre in Uttharakashi. Following the teacher training, Lek spent another 6 months in Northern India to experience different yoga styles. His practice, however, was truly transformed when he met Victor Chng who inspired and trained him to be a Yin Yoga teacher. Lek further deepened his Yin Yoga teaching by studying with Angela Farmer and Victor Van Katoon, who taught him the inner work of yoga. At present, Lek is working as the Yoga and Meditation Director at The Spa Resort Chiang Mai, Thailand. He also is a co-owner of the internationally renowned Wild Rose Studio in Chiang Mai. He teaches at Wild Rose, as well as at other yoga studios in Chiang Mai. Lek also teaches Yin Yoga classes, workshops, and retreats throughout Thailand and internationally. He also teaches regularly at the ASVZ (Akademischer Sportverband Zürich) in Zurich, Switzerland ((contact info blocked)). His teachings are focused on body awareness and deep stretches of joints, ligaments, and the fascia, as well as on freeing the flow of Qi in the body. His classes include information on the physiology and anatomy of connective tissues. He also incorporates philosophy, work with the subconscious, spiritualism, energy work, and Traditional Chinese Medicine into his teaching. During the teacher training, Lek will be sharing his vast knowledge of the energy body, the meridians in the body and how to optimally activate them in our yoga practice. He will focus on a Yin-centered practice, which will give you an alternative teaching style to offer to your future students, and will teach energetic hands-on adjustments that will allow you and your students to go deeper in your practice.
