A yoga journey with Sachie
Sachie has been teaching yoga since she got certified
as a Bikram yoga teacher in 2006. She has seen many lives transformed through yoga practice. It has been a very rewarding experience for her to become a witness to her students’ transformations and to be a part of their yoga journey. Especially, when she captures the moment when their eyes get brighter as they make happen what they once thought was impossible; her mind is then full of joy and excitement.
Sachie with her teacher, Emmy S. Cleaves
In her own yoga journey, she has been blessed to learn directly from Emmy S. Cleaves, the principle teacher of Bikram Yoga College of India. Emmy has had a tremendous and profound impact on her practice, on her teaching, and in her life. What she has learned from Emmy goes way beyond yoga postures, she has taught Sachie yoga as a science and as a way of life. Our bodies have the power to heal itself and how to cultivate this healing through mindful practice. Since she started to study under Emmy regularly in 2009, her curiosity toward yoga, the human body, and the mind became unstoppable. Her passion to help people through yoga continuously grew and led her to Yoga Therapy Rx program at Loyola Marymount University. She completed the clinical level (Level III) in 2017. She was also certified as Prime of Life Yoga, which is yoga over 40 years old, at Loyola Marymount University in 2018.
She has kept studying yoga and yoga therapy directly under her teachers especially from Emmy S. Cleaves, the director of LMU Yoga Therapy Rx program and Prime of Life Yoga founder, Larry Payne, Ph.D and the founder of Lavanya Wellness, Rajashree Choudhury, C-IAYT. She recently involved in some Larry's projects such as the Spondylitis Association of America’s 35- year anniversary project, “Back in Action, Again”and his newly published book, “Yoga After 50 For Dummies” as a model of the yoga postures. She has studied Ayurveda medicine which is considered as a sister subject of yoga. And, she is currently working towards a master's degree of Yoga Study at LMU.
