Ricardo Martin Originally from Venezuela, Ricardo began his concentration-based meditation practice almost 10 years ago, practicing occasionally along with the Ashtanga Yoga method – both the practices of meditation and yoga helped him to calm down the mind and to recognize deeper layers of himself. Eventually, his yoga practice led him to Thailand at the end of 2010, and it was here that he found a style of meditation that really changed his life.

Kunkanit (Joy) Phrombut Originally from Thailand, Joy was introduced to meditation at the very early age of 5, and she took the study and practice and study of meditation more seriously 10 years ago. Joy has participated in many meditation retreats on Vipassana meditation along with Ashtanga Yoga method.
