        Ret Sophal

    Sophal Ret comes from Tboung Kmom province and she is a medical student in year six at
    the University of Health and Science. She became interested in yoga after experiencing it a
    few times. The moment she started this type of exercise, she found herself more flexible,
    peaceful and relaxed from the tension from her studies and everyday life challenges. She
    found that yoga is not just a series of poses which work on the body only but that it also
    works on the mind.

    Sophal has successfully completed the introductory course for sharing yoga and meditation
    in 2016. She became a yoga teacher at Kundalini Yoga Cambodia after that. She also reaches
    out giving part of her free time to share her yoga and meditation experience, providing yoga
    classes to the kids in a local community project, called Young Leader Centre.

    For Sophal, life is hard to balance without yoga.

    Sao Somaly
    Sao Somaly was born in Kampot province and now is living in Phnom Penh. She runs a small
    business which enables her to work at home.

    Two years ago, Somaly learned about Kundalini Yoga from her sister and started to attend
    the classes twice a week. After some time, she started to experience a lot of changes both
    mentally and physically. Yoga helped her to understand clearly about herself, creating a
    balance, improving the flexibility of her body and strengthening every muscles. Moreover,
    Yoga taught her to improve her breathing habit and to calm her mind. Most importantly, she
    learned to control her anger and eliminate things that are not good for her mental health.
    Also she used to have a lot of difficulties falling asleep, however through yoga breathing
    exercises and mediations she did overcome this struggle.

    Early 2017, Somaly took a very important decision and enrolled for the Basic Yoga and
    Meditation Introductory course to learn more about Yoga and Meditation and to be able to
    share Kundalini Yoga. Now she is become one of the active users and instructors of Kundalini

    Somaly is very grateful and proud to have met this opportunity to share her knowledge of
    Yoga to all the students including family, relatives and friends in her community. Finally,
    Kundalini Yoga has paved her a way that let her out from the darkness toward the brightness
    where she belongs.
