Gayoung was brought up in a family already invested in maintaining a balance in life through yoga. From her mother, a Korean Hatha yoga teacher, she learned how yoga empowers people and brings positive changes in their lives. So it was only natural that she followed in her mom’s footsteps.
Since 2010 Gayoung has explored and practised different forms of yoga and meditation in India, Australia and Uganda. She started with Hatha yoga as her main practice and earned her first yoga instructor qualification in 2012. After having travelled and worked in five continents she settled in Belgium where she fell in love with Ashtanga and Vinyasa practice. In 2018 she completed her second yoga teacher training and she has been practising the traditional method of Ashtanga yoga under the guidance of Anne and Lynne Pinette(Ashtanga Yoga Brussels) and Hamish Hendry(Astanga Yoga London). In 2023 she moved to Beijing, China to continue teaching.
Gayoung brings a worldly dynamism to her classes. During her sessions, she emphasises the importance of conscious connected breathing to help her students achieve complete focus and live each moment to the fullest. Through careful hands-on adjustments she supports them in experiencing the empowering effects of yoga.
