Joy

(Bright Yoga Director)

Yoga Holiday in Bali is another way in how Joy can connect with students who want to go deeper into their practice without the commitment to become a Yoga Teacher.

Kunkanit Phrombut (Joy)

Joy was born in Bangkok, Thailand in 1979. She graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Applied Arts in 2000, and became a jewelry designer.
Joy began to practice yoga in 2005 and quickly realizes it was what she really wanted to do in life, so she continued her yoga journey, practiced and learned with many teachers around the world and studied many different styles of yoga to gain more knowledge and get deeper understanding of yoga.

Joy has studied in many different places and with many great teachers including:
  • Ashtanga Yoga from R.Sharath Jois, Mysore India.
  • Rocket Yoga from Larry Schutlz, Ricardo Martin and Donovan F Hicks,
  • Iyengar Yoga from Justin Herold, Eka Pada Bakasana
  • Anusara Yoga from Bo Srey,
  • Hot Yoga from John Anderson and many teachers in Thailand.
  • Yin Yoga from Claire Bostock and Gabriel Azoulay and many teachers in Thailand.
  • Applied Yoga Anatomy course from Simon Borg Olivier.

Joy took her first Yoga Teacher Training Course in 2007 with Absolute Yoga Thailand, and obtained her 200 Hrs Hot Yoga teacher certification. Since then she has been inspiring and sharing her passion with all those who are interested.

In 2009, she travelled to the United States for 6 months to study with Doug Swenson, one of the famous Yoga teachers in the West. While there, she was also given the chance to be his Yoga Assistant for The Yoga Conference Canada as well as many yoga workshops in the USA.

In 2010, she took another Yoga Teacher Training with Larry Schultz, the founder of It’s Yoga. This time it became a transformative step in her life. When she certified 200 Hrs Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher under Larry Schultz, she began her career as a Trainer.

Since that time she has been a Trainer for It’s Yoga, and has conducted 5-6 Teacher trainings per year, plus many yoga retreats workshops and conferences. She and Ricardo Martin have been teaching and sharing their passion for yoga practice together. The two of them have taught and supported many Yoga Practitioners to be able to teach by heart and to get Certified from It’s Yoga and the International Yoga Alliance. Together they have helped bring forth many good quality yoga teachers throughout the world, and they continue to do so through their own company – It’s Yoga Satellite in the past now Bright Yoga. With their courses certified E-RYT 200 from Yoga Alliance, Joy is able to train and certify Yoga Teachers throughout the world.

Joy also practices Vippasana Meditation daily and always shares the meditation technique with her students to help them develop their yoga practice.

Yoga Holiday in Bali is another way in how Joy can connect with students who want to go deeper into their practice without the commitment to become a Yoga Teacher. Reaching and help as many students as possible is one of her main goals as Yoga Teacher.

“It shows you the truth of life, it gives us the opportunity to see things clearly as they are, and to be able to let go”
