Sunny McGill – ERYT 200 & RYT 500

Sunny McGill

Sunny is a passionate yoga teacher, registered with Yoga Alliance and is an ERYT 200 and RYT 500 (her experience in teaching in studio class and teacher training combined over 4,000 hours), as she has been teaching multiple classes nearly everyday since 2012.

Trained in Sivananda, Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and incorporating other styles of yoga in her teaching. Sunny’s classes and trainings have a firm foundation in Hatha & Vinyasa yoga. She started her teaching career in the Bangkok area at a fitness centre, then assisted and led at a few yoga teacher trainings in Kerala, India.

Sunny lived and worked in Canada for 11 years. Before she moved back to Thailand and became a yoga teacher, she worked at a hospital in palliative care. For many, this job is an eye opener, and it was for Sunny. Caring for people nearing the end of their life, she realised she should live and enjoy things she really loves and be passionate about it before the end of her life.

 

Teaching yoga is my passion. It makes me happy. I love seeing my students with a happy face, sweating, and yet peaceful after the yoga session. Teaching yoga is also helping me to have a better awareness of what is going on around me and what is going on in my own mind. This enhanced awareness improves every aspect of my daily life and I use yoga to help myself going through the obstacles of life. I just love to share what I’ve learned, and contribute to improving the lives of others.


Nancy Huettig – RYT 200

Nancy’s life changing journey started as she walked away from her corporate job to find her heart’s desire. She followed her desire, and travelling guided her through healing from her burn-out and she found new inspiration for her life. Yoga, Reiki and Meditation in combination with Nature and the Holistic Ayurvedic system of self-healing helped Nancy to create balance, mindfulness and peace in her body, mind and soul in order to reach her purpose in life with love, compassion and consciousness. Nancy’s life transformed into more happiness, better health and observation regarding her body and deeper understanding and connection to herself she felt had been lacking for a long time.


Cheryl Friedman

Cheryl Friedman - Yoga philosophy teacher

Cheryl’s approach to teaching Yoga Philosophy is to create an open discussion forum, by presenting various schools of thought and belief systems, accounting for the historical and cultural context in which they developed. A student of yoga, for many years, Cheryl’s natural curiosity and analytic mind led her to exploring the deeper questions of the philosophy of yoga. To supplement her self-study, she has learned from a diverse range of teachers, including Swami Ramananda of Integral Yoga San Francisco, Sacinandana Swami of Goloka Dham in Germany, Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji and Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji of Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh India, and Christopher Wallis, Classical Tantric Scholar and Practioner, author of Tantra Illuminated and founder of the Tantrika Institute in Portugal.

She is also a graduate of the Heart of Sound, the first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training devoted entirely to the transformative power of sound, and has studied kirtan with Dave Stringer, Jai Uttal, and the devotees at Radhadesh Temple in Belgium. In 2018, Cheryl was a presenter at the International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh, India.
