Thang, “Tang”, is a transportation engineer that loves being outdoor and with nature. His hobby includes climbing, backpacking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, biking, running and photography. Thang started studying and practicing yoga in 2000 to relieve his shoulder and neck injuries from multiple car accidents and as a replacement for his martial art practice. His yoga practice includes a daily 2 hour sitting meditation practice. The benefits of yoga has motivated him to share the yoga practice with others. He began teaching in 2006 privately and at work and got his yoga alliance certification in 2009. Thang strongly believes the yoga practice is incomplete without the mindfulness practice, “yoga without mindfulness is just another physical exercise”. He incorporates mindfulness practice in his yoga classes and trains new teachers how to incorporate mindfulness in their teaching. Thang also teaches meditation workshops at various yoga studios to raise money for his favorite non-profit organizations. Thang teaches Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin yoga, Yogasport, and Myofascial yoga ball; he is also involved with yoga teacher training at various studios.
