About the Retreat Facilitators
Quynh Duong is the founder and owner of Omandala Vietnam Business. She was originally a hospitality manager in Hanoi capital and Phu Quoc Island for 4 years. Working in hospitality helped her to understand how to give well-organized retreats that hold up to high standards for you.
As a Tibetan singing bowl Therapist, Quynh trained in Sound Planetarium and Natural Sound Therapy with masters in Nepal. The sequences from these methods are different from each other, as she strikes the bowls differently to allow deep, beautiful sound and vibration of the bowls. She has become a thoughtful coach in meditation and offers sound healing sessions. After these private sessions, her customers say she is the best therapeutic healer. She coaches them through their problems and they can completely allow awareness to arise about all their issues and let go of things that no longer serve them. After years of teaching and doing sound healing treatments, her knowledge and expertise with the guests, she will guide you in her retreats with awareness of self-care and wellbeing.
Anna Le is an authentic and trustful teacher. She finished 200 hours training at New Yoga Angle of Power Vinyasa Focus in 2017. She gets to teaching yoga as her passions to support others find happiness with yoga and not forcing their bodies. We all have different teaching styles, with Anna Le, she combines yoga postures and meditation on the mat, with a focus on the present moment or just being in your savasana pose. Attending her classes, students can completely focus on their Drishti and gazes on the mat and fulfill the poses in a flow where you can understand your level of flexibility and your resistance at the same time. “Change is never painful, only resistance to change is painful.”
