Joo has been teaching hatha vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, meditation, and qigong since July 2007. Inspired by Max Strom, Matthew Raymond Cohen, Mimi Kuo-Deemer, Robyn Wexler and Judith Hanson Lasater, his classes emphasise breath, alignment and intention. Joo’s sequences integrate movements and postures from the yogic tradition with energetic qigong practices to leave you strengthened in body and calm of mind.
Since his first acupuncture treatment in 2006 with Cameron Tukapua, founder of youbeingyou.org , Joo has trained and set up his own Five Element Acupuncture Practice .
Born on a small island in Malaysia in the 70s, it is a wonder that life has given Joo such rich experiences in Beijing, Shanghai, New York and the UK. He has now put down roots near St Albans, with his husband and their two dogs. He is indebted to his family for their love and support and for the continued friendship of Cameron, who is an inspiration and guiding light to this day.
