Duncan Wong
The founder of Yogic Arts, Duncan Wong brings a wealth of experience and wisdom to this interactive intensive. A student of Korean Buddhist martial arts since childhood and a seasoned body-worker, Wong's yoga background is in the Ashtanga lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, of Mysore, South India, and he is certified in the Jivamukti method as taught directly by Sharon Gannon and David Life. Combining physical insight, precision, acceptance and energetic flow, Wong's approach to yoga and movement takes students' biomechanical and bio-energetic knowledge and experience to the next level of awareness and ability. Postural practice is deepened and enhanced by the dynamic Thai Vinyasa assists that Duncan masterfully offers throughout the practice.

Wong's combined practice and teaching experience spans three decades, and he is known internationally as a teacher's teacher. Originally a native of San Francisco, Duncan has spent the last decade in New York City and abroad developing the ongoing expression of his formative life's work. Duncan will relocate his global base to Hong Kong and Shanghai beginning in 2005, offering his dharmic [life teaching] work, while continuing to serve the global community.

Ateeka is a Certified Integral Yoga instructor and Registered Yoga Teacher with the internationally recognized YOGA ALLIANCE and member of the International Yoga Therapists Association.

Her approach to Yoga is compassionate, authentic, light-hearted and rooted in the traditions of classical Raja (Royal) Yoga, Bhakti (Devotional) Yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices. She teaches an "intuitive" yoga style, encouraging students to listen inward to the messages of the body. Taking a direct approach to the soul, Ateeka guides students to explore the asana from the inside out with a combination of organic movement and attention to the core taking form as individualized asana. Teaching only what she has experienced to be true for herself... practices with Ateeka are exploratory, changing, growing and evolving.

Ateeka's passion for connecting with people on a heart level has led her to travel extensively around the world. From Bali to Morocco, India to Ireland, Scotland to South Africa, she credits much of her teaching style to life's precious lessons that she has learned on the road.

Ateeka is grateful to her Yoga guru, Sri Swami Satchitandanda for his timeless inspiration. She is touched and deeply influenced by the teachings of Ramana Maharshi, Sri Ramakrishna, Ammachi, Neem Karoli Baba and Ram Dass. She also continues to study with some of the world's most innovative teachers including Aadil Palkhivala, Tony Briggs, Ravi Singh, Jai Uttal, Daniel Paul and Alan Clements.
