Nam’s passion for Yoga and Healthy Living originates from Martial Arts. Training in Shotokan Karate and Wing Chun Kung Fu from the age of 6, lead her to her achieve her black belt through the K.U.G.B and J.K.A in 2000. Competing and teaching Karate, by 2008 she achieved her 3rd Dan black belt through the A.M.A.
Instilled with discipline from an early age, Nams felt there was a lack of longevity and compassion in her life. Having a Thai mother and English father meant she was travelling between both cultures, in 2002, she returned to Thailand to study Thai Yoga Massage that her grandmother taught her from being a child. This lead her practise and qualify in Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Foot Reflexology and Aromatherapy at the Wat-Po Medical School, Bangkok and Jap-Sen Nerve-Touch Massage in Chiang Mai. With love of Asian and Oriental Arts, she was also intrigued by Japanese Shiatsu and Tai Chi, and combined this in teaching Martial and healing Arts.
Around 2006 in Cornwall, Nam really caught the Yoga bug! Practising Ashtanga and Sivananda Yoga, she went on to assist in Hatha classes in Koh Samui and Pattaya in various studios and gyms. Training and taking workshops with leading instructors Duncan Wong, Dr Elena Voyce, Jodie Merrick, David Sye, Jaqui Wan and Lucia Cockcroft, inspired Nam to study under Dr Elena Voyce for her 200Hr Yoga Alliance Diploma in London.
