Our mission is to inspire awareness about the potential of Yoga practice as medicine, to shift the idea of yoga as a physical practice only, and to awaken in more and more people the ability to transform through the practice, inner power that we all care inside ourselves.
Our vision is to create more access to the unique yoga method we have created, giving opportunity to people to tap in their natural essence, and offering a space where they can learn and develop their practice in harmony with community, nature and body-mind balance.
“Yoga is my medicine and all the challenges that came with the practice are my biggest teachers”
Michael Zunini is an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vinyasa Krama teacher with more than 14 years of practice and more than one thousand hours of certified courses. He shares his teachings currently in Thailand, where he runs his own studio, Boiler Room Phangan, offering daily classes and yoga teacher training.
Inspired by amazing teachers and masters around the world, Michael has developed his own yoga style, focusing on gentleness, awareness of movement and the connection to the breath. Some of his main teachers are John Scott (New Zealand), Rolf Naujokat (Goa, India), Matthew Vollmer (Brazil), and R.Sharat Jois (India) in the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute, one of the most traditional Mysore Ashtanga Yoga schools in India, where Michael practiced for 8 years during 3 months immersions every year.
His experience in bodywork (previously an outstanding athlete, martial arts and jiu-jitsu practitioner), strong discipline and experiences in healing his own injuries through Yoga, makes him a humble, present and careful teacher. Supporting each individual`s journey with gentleness and respect.
Michael opened his first Yoga studio in 2011 in Thailand. In 2014 following the wish to return to his motherland he opened his first yoga studio in Chile, where he was teaching the traditional method for more than 3 years.
Returning to Asia in 2019 he met Matthew Sweeney and his life-changing method Atapa Krama, in Ubud, Indonesia. Matthew introduced him to this very clever way to approach the practice, developed in 6 different series. This incredible knowledge changed Michael`s teachings and life.
Amazed with the effects of the practice, he started integrating the method in his classes and nowadays he teaches his unique style, a fusion of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vinyasa Krama. For Michael, teaching is a dance in between gentleness and motivation, supporting his students to see Yoga going beyond the poses, but as a way of life, a way to connect with everything around us.
Experienced and qualified teachers to teach the yoga class in a responsible and respectful way
In 2011, I made my first journey to Mysore to practice at Patthabi Jois Institute of Ashtanga Yoga, and for the next decade I’ve practiced with many teachers, including Sharatah Jois, Laruga Glaser, Mark Darby, Harmony Slater, Sharmila Desai.
I believe that we are limitless beings, and all we need to do is create sacred temple that is our body and mind.
I truly want to help those who find they are being called to teach and serve, to know what responsibilities they are taking on and how they can guide from the place of being grounded and humble.
In the moments that Michael Zunini isn’t in Ko Phangan, I will teach the classes with the same respect as him… see you in the Boiler Room
