What students/employers say about Paul’s Yoga teaching:
“Paul [Keoni] Chun has been an excellent and unique addition to The HRC Yoga Team.
His classes are both challenging and spiritual.
He brings a user-friendly atmosphere to yoga and makes all participants feel comfortable.
His journey with his senior clientele at [NYHRC] 76th St. has been heart-warming to watch. Through Yoga Stretch [classes] they have learned flexibility, and a higher level of mind/body awareness.”
– Maryann Donner, Group Fitness Director, New York Health & Racquet Club
“Paul, the class you taught here in this health club yoga is just as good as can be found in a yoga studio.”
– Dina Glass
“Paul’s yoga classes provide me with a valuable respite from the daily stress of my hyper-active litigation practice. Paul’s gentle words of encouragement, his focus on breathing technique, and his on-the-fly modifications for students of all abilities set him apart from other yoga instructors….”
– A. S., Partner in Major U.S. Law Firm
“I… believe that teaching is an art form and any discipline in the hands of a dabbler quickly loses vitality. Paul is a true artist and … he is always discovering another way to understand each yoga sequence and he capably communicates that understanding to his students… That, in a nutshell, is the strength of Paul’s teaching….”
– P. S., Theatre Director, 2007 Moliere Award nominee, 2000 Obie Award
“… Paul is a master teacher. He is positive, kind, supportive and inspirational and creates a welcoming and calm atmosphere where egos are not allowed. He teaches with great warmth, gentleness, and humor and always gives us something to think about during class which also permeates into our week and gives me wonderful moments of reflection and joy. I notice that the yoga or “union” stays with me… Paul is a transcendent yoga teacher.”
– L. T., Broadway and Film Actor
“… Paul’s class is like an Ashram for me in the midst of Manhattan. Not only is he knowledgeable about what postures work best for what, but also he always shares a spiritual pearl of wisdom. It is quiet and simple, but stays with you… and you think of it when you least expect it!….”
– K. B., Soap Opera Actor
“… Before I took a class from Paul, I would take Yoga here and there, from different teachers… I have made great progress studying with him, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well… Paul … is a superior teacher, … never losing sight of his humble and important message that “more is not necessarily better.”… All in all, Paul has been a tremendously important guide for me – physically, mentally, and spiritually – and I credit him not just as a key contributor to my success, but also as a compassionate teacher whose caring, thoughtful methods help me navigate life’s daily difficulties with equanimity and calm.”
– S. C., Slava’s Snowshow on Broadway
