About Your Host
Bruce was born in Toronto to a Filipina mother and Korean father. Growing up in one of the most multicultural cities in the world, Toronto, meant that he was always learning about different people, cultures, and ideas. It fostered in him a deep curiosity about the world. It was no surprise that at 26, he left his 7-year tenure with a national bank to pursue his passion of teaching yoga overseas.
Only 11 months after he completed his first yoga teacher training in 2008, he embarked on a journey that has since brought him around the world, and back again. He has lived and taught yoga in Toronto, Singapore, Dublin, Bangkok, Hong Kong, and San Francisco. From the end of 2015 until the present, he has been nomadic, leading breakthrough workshops, retreats, and in-depth teacher training programs between various countries in Europe and cities in Southern Africa, whilst living out of a suitcase.
“As my teaching experience is mirrored by my multi-faceted experiences of living and traveling all over the world, my teaching has developed a distinct voice that is authentic, unique, and ubiquitous for people of all backgrounds and body types. At any stage in life, I am prepared to meet people exactly where they are at in theirs.”
His formal training is a cumulative 1500+ hours, and there are thousands more of personal study and inquiry. Bruce has had the privilege of studying with world leaders like Briohny Smyth & Dice Iida-Klein, Jason Crandell, Cameron Shayne, Tamsin Sheehy, to name a few. “Yet, no matter how many places I have seen, who I have studied with, or retreats I have led, it is my students that I learn the most from.”
Bruce’s classes are often described as energising as well as calming and deeply healing. “I am dedicated to providing a transformative environment where students feel safe and at peace.”
