  • About YUJMU

    Being Creative With Wellness

    There is no one path that is going to work for everyone. YUJMU is about finding your potential and sometimes that requires creative, playful ways of thinking and acting.

     

    YUJMU starts small and thinks big for our brand and for you. We are planting the seeds for leading the way to a new level of contentment that merges the traditions of the East with the individuality of the West.

     

    Our programs offer time-tested practices while encouraging you to find your own way of incorporating them into your body, mind and life.

  • Merge With Your Potential

    YUJ

    Merge

    A Sanskrit root word variously translated as "to unite" or "to merge". The word and concept of Yoga comes from this word.

     

     

    MU

    Emptiness

    A Japanese word variously translated as "nothing", "not have" or "no". It is used in Zen to refer to emptiness, the way an empty tea cup has the potential to be filled by anything.

  • TESTIMONIALS

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Helen

    "I found the yin asana practice like a new gift I can share with my students. A new way to really connect more deeply to the inner self and release mental and physical tension. I found TJ's words on meditation most beneficial, and will continue to practice using the techniques he shared. I found looking at the Chakras and Chi exciting and TJ's passion for his chosen subjects infectious. It has really reiterated how important balance is in my life and I feel that this training has opened my eyes and shed some light on things for me. The grounding practice of Yin is something I am really interested to explore further, as the nourishment gained from it has transformed my thinking."

    Kathy

    "I was confident it would be of a really high standard based on Jess and her fabulous studio & the great teachers she has there but it exceeded my expectations. I feel that you have awakened my interest in a lot of these subjects and I loved that you kept the chakra & meridian lecture very real as I feel I can introduce this in conversation to clients & friends who are interested in the physical & mental benefits of yoga without scaring them off.

    I don't feel selfish spending the money on myself now as I feel that my family & friends have benefited from this course through the changes in me."

    Amy

    "TJ's training empowered me to find more freedom in the ways I both practice and teach Yin. This experience has opened me up to trying new poses, incorporating complementary practices like meditation & Pranayama and trusting my own unique offerings as I share Yin with others."

    Lydia

    "I applied for this course new to Yin Yoga, with very little practice and experience. The theme of 'letting go' has had a huge effect on my life since the course, starting with just little things during the ten days and I'm still putting it into practice weeks later. I also still meditate, daily, 10 days of practice with Tj and experiencing different techniques has played a huge part in understanding in my home practice. My Yin Yoga practice developed greatly over the week, learning every pose in depth has not only made me feel more connected with my mind and body during my practices but I'm also knowledgeable and confident to teach."
