Muning Hu RYT500, E-RYT200, Yin Yoga Certified, YACEP
Muning was first introduced to Yoga when she was 15. What inspires Muning the most is the journey of self-realization and the spiritual connection to the true self. She became a lifetime student to Yoga ever since and is still feeling grateful for every learning experience around her and many study opportunities in India. She spent extensive time in both India and China learning and absorbing the Science of Easter Medicine.
Muning’s teaching is inspired by integrating tools from different styles and approaches in order to customize classes and teacher trainings for her students. Muning believes every student is an individual who have different bodies and need different approaches to yoga. Muning’s goal as a teacher is to inspire her students to find their balanced life, happiness and inner peace both on their mats and off the mats through the practice of yoga. Currently, Muning offers Hatha practices, private sessions and group classes, Yin yoga workshops, teacher training programs and is a registered YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continue Education Provider).
