About Jimmy


Yoga Master Trainer


How I became a Yoga Master Trainer:
I first started to work at Living Fit in Bangkok, Thailand as a Fitness Instructor. While in the probation time, The Fitness Manager indicated that everyone must have 2 classes per week for the group exercise time table. I felt pressure, because I didn’t like aerobic dancing. Certainly I couldn’t teach aerobic dance. Yoga was the best choice for me at that time. I said to everyone “I will teach Yoga for group exercise”.
I have been practicing yoga since 1999, having first started to study Hatha yoga with Ajaan Jullawat (Guru Wat) at Living Fit, Bangkok, Thailand. Guru Wat is very famous yoga teacher in Bangkok. Guru Wat studied Traditional yoga from India, Nepal and Tibet. Guru Wat has taught yoga for fitness for 20 years and is still teaching yoga for fitness.
I then took a one-year intensive yoga teacher training with Guru Wat. I began teaching Yoga for fitness in 2000, having retired as a Fitness Instructor. From January of 2000 I have worked as a freelance Yoga Instructor in Bangkok.
