YuMee Chung


YuMee Chung (Padmani) is a former securities lawyer who left a busy practice to engage more deeply with life. More than a decade later, she is an Advance Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher who also offers classes in the Yoga Tune Up method.

Known for her uplifting, breath-driven classes and organic sequencing, she is a teacher who speaks deftly to body, mind, and spirit, and communicates about the yogic journey with grace and earthy charm. Students can expect an impeccable practice that strikes a balance between spirit and sweat.

Lauded in Yoga Journal as one of the teachers to watch in the Jivamukti Yoga lineage, YuMee is on the faculty of a number of yoga teacher training programs and she leads international workshops and retreats. Though her work and teaching take her around the globe, she is happiest at home with her musician husband.

YuMee looks to David Life, Sharon Gannon, Laraaji Nadabrahmananda, and Jill Miller for inspiration both on and off the mat.
