UYEN'S CREDENTIALS

I'm fully insured and have trained in both Vietnam and the UK. I have studied with a range of influential teachers around the world and continually expand my knowledge in relevant fields to help people to transform the relationship to themselves and become much more authentic and comfortable to who they are. I hold certifications in each of the two disciplines of yoga meditation and mindfulness and I am qualified to teach and work with people of all ages. My specialist training and knowledge includes:

  • Teaching yoga meditation to everyone from 7 to 93+ years old who are interested in learning or enhancing their yoga meditation practice. I am a recognised member of and a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
     

  • I have a real passion and drive to work with children and young people especially and to support them on their journey through school and life. This led me to train with and be recognised by the well-respected Mindfulness in Schools Project and have focused on working with two age groups 7-11 and 11-18. Mindfulness in Schools Project delivers a toolkit that can anchor a child for life, rather than a quick fix they might forget just as fast as they have learned it! I can work with both students and teaching staff to bring mindfulness to young people and, potentially, to develop a culture shift in a school’s approach to their student's mental health and wellbeing.

  • To build on my passion for working with young adults as I grow I am a qualified Teen Yoga Mental Health teacher.

  • I am fully insured and I have an enhanced DBS check.  I am safeguarding trained as well as mental health first-aid trained.​​

  • In Vietnam, I practiced Ananda Marga Yoga – connecting heart-mind-body – with Mrs. Khanh Kakyani & Mrs. Cuu Karuna and I still receive support from these two amazing teachers. I have practiced mindfulness meditation - Mindful living - through the teachings of Thay Thich Nhat Hanh since I was very young in Vietnam and carried on my dive deeply into the human mind with teaching from wonderful teachers like Jiddu Krishnamurti and Emile Condrad. 

 

  • I also add to my learning through the teachings of people like Susan Harper for Perception& Perceiving practices; Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen - cellular consciousness & embryo development process (Body-Mind Centering); Amy Matthews - embodied anatomy & embryology; Michael Meade (Living Myth); Gil Hedley (dissector); Susan Bauer (embodied teen), David Zemach-Bersin (Feldenkrais Method); Michael Molin Skelton (Soul Motion dance); Gabrielle Roth (5 Rhythms emotional dance); Hoa thuong Thich Giac Khang (a Vietnamese monk); Reggie Ray (meditation teacher), Dr. Gabor Maté (trauma and addiction), Peter Levine (trauma and body awareness),  and from my many clients to open up a natural way of addressing health, vitality and possibility. 

I am happy to hear from you about teaching somatic-embodiment mindfulness yoga meditation in schools, workplaces & others to support and improve physical-mental-emotional-social health for children and adults (7 to 93+ years old) who may face physical challenges or feel stuck in thoughts, feelings, emotions, find it difficult to relax or stay focussed, struggle with chronic tension-stress, school attendance & behaviours, stress, anxiety, depression, in the process of grieving or those who would like to a have a deep understanding of their own cognition, emotion, physicality and spirituality.

If you are new to me, please do have a quick look at some of the reviews from schools, parents and others on Google, Facebook and Yoga Alliance Professional (UK)
