YuMee Chung (Padmani) E-RYT-500 is a former securities lawyer who left a busy practice to engage more deeply with life. More than a decade later, she is an Advance Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher who also offers classes in the Yoga Tune Up® method.
Known for her uplifting, breath-driven classes and intelligent, organic sequencing, she is a popular teacher who speaks deftly to body, mind and spirit, and communicates about the most subtle and nuanced parts of the yogic journey with grace and earthy charm. Students can expect an impeccable practice that strikes a perfect balance between spirit and sweat.
Lauded in Yoga Journal as one of the teachers to watch in the Jivamukti Yoga lineage, YuMee is on the faculty of a number of yoga teacher training programs and she leads international workshops and retreats. Though her work and teaching take her around the globe, she is happiest at home with her musician husband.
YuMee looks to David Life, Sharon Gannon, Laraaji Nadabrahmananda, Jill Miller and Scott Peterson for inspiration both on and off the mat.
