Nam is an E-RYT500 teacher who has been featured on Yoga International. As a student of yoga and functional movement modalities, his yoga classes are grounded in strength, anatomical detail and mindfulness. Nam focuses on detailed verbal cues and expert hands-on adjustments/assists to help his students find a fuller experience in their yoga practice, emphasizing specific learning objectives in each of his classes. Nam’s belief is that teaching yoga is just like teaching any other subject, in that the teacher has a responsibility to not just provide a unique experience but also to educate their students on the subject itself. Whether taking his restorative or vinyasa class, students can expect to explore their strengths, work on focus, and learn to about the subject of yoga on and off the mat.
Nam has worked with professional athletes in the NFL, MLB, and NBA in a myriad of ways such as aiding in recovery from injuries, maintaining strength and flexibility pre- and post-season, improving range of motion, and increasing strength at the end range of motion. He has worked with other private clients as well to help them recover from injury, improve their skills in specific yoga postures, find mindfulness, and reduce stress levels.
As a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) educator, Nam has been considered by his community as a “teacher’s teacher” who enjoys helping students as well as other teachers further their study and understanding of yoga and movement.
