about us

YuMee Chung (Padmani) 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. Her uplifting, breath-driven classes emphasize intelligent, organic sequencing and are known for their rich philosophical underpinning and a playful bent. Students can expect an impeccable practice that strikes a perfect balance between spirit and sweat.

Named in Yoga Journal's listing of yoga's "who's who," 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 on the shores of Lake Simcoe with her musician husband.

YuMee is grateful to her teachers David Life, Sharon Gannon, Laraaji Nadabrahmananda, Jill Miller and Scott Peterson for their inspiration both on and off the mat.
