What I love most about ABSOLUTE YOU is that it has become a place where friends have been made, passions have been born out of and a real sense of community is there. It’s part of people’s lives and part of their lifestyles.

Back then, I was in Hong Kong working in finance and the pace was frantica typical work hard, play hard environment and lifestyle. Whilst it was enjoyable I needed some balance in my life. I found this in Yoga. I fell in love with Yoga and it’s been a long and enduring love affair since then. I was hooked after my first class. I felt good during class, and I felt great after class with how light I felt and how relaxed my mind was.
Once I moved back to Thailand, I needed to find a way to continue my practice and the only way was to open my own studio. It allowed me to indulge my passion as well as share what I had discovered with my friends and family. That was just my little plan that has grown over the years to become the Best Yoga Studios in Thailand with over 100,000 getting on board.
After I went from hard working single woman to a married mother of 2 children, I continued with Yoga but I also needed something to target certain muscles to tone up and build strength and regain and maintain a Long & Lean body that at the same time was not bulky.
This is when I discovered Pilates Reformer, very effective, fun and scientific. The resistance helped the definition of long and lean muscles and the routine of engaging my core in the correct way toned my abs really quickly. As a result I looked better in my 40’s than I did in my 30’s!
I’ve relied on Yoga and Pilates Reformer for a long time to keep fit and healthy and as time went on and as I grew older (as did my friends!) I noticed how women and men find it harder to maintain their weight. So, my next exercise is Coreblast, targets core strength, flexibility and promotes lean muscles during a cardio burn. It’s a fun, dynamic exercise.
Ben’s mission is to create fun, supportive environment that challenges students to change their mind and body through exercise.
