      Instructors  

      Kehkashan Nadeem

      • Kehkashan (Pakistan) has 20 years of yoga experience.  She completed a 500-hour Advanced YTT in Nepal, plus several other courses including a 6 month long intensive training at the Institute of Classical Yoga Pakistan.  She has additional certifications in Hot Yoga TT from Absolute Yoga Academy, Advance Teaching Skills at the Yoga Expert Academy, Aerial Yoga TT at ULU Yoga & Sky Yoga Level 2 TT in Bali.  Kehkeh’s commitment to practice allowed her to be the first to bring Aerial Yoga in Pakistan, which soon gained popularity.
      • Since then she became lead instructor for ULU Yoga teacher training courses in Bali and Thailand.  Kehkeh’s’ passion for improving oneself through yoga is infectious.  She is a master at taking you through the paces, drawing connections between poses, giving you the confidence to try tricky things & get into advanced poses eventually.  She is tough when one needs to be challenged, & compassionate as she tailors poses to suit one’s capabilities, taking time to discuss students’ health & introduce them to pranayama & meditation, determined to take one deeper into the sublime joyride that is yoga.
      • “I found yoga back in 1999.  I was looking for light supple practice to heal my body after two difficult childbirths.  There was only one yoga school in Pakistan at that time and I became a dedicated student.  In 2000 My teacher asked me to join their yoga training.  I refused as I didn’t want to be just a yoga teacher, but he insisted that you don’t have to teach and it’s also good for your own practice, so I changed my mind.  Thank God for that!”
      • “My first yoga training was more than 1,000 hours long over a 6 month period followed by 3 months of volunteer teaching.  I really loved it and so I began to teach professionally.  Since 2001 I have taught, practiced and studied every single day despite a busy family life with two kids.  Each year I attend more trainings to improve my skills in various styles and will continue for the rest of my life.  Thanks to yoga for giving me such amazing meaningful life and thanks to my instructors and students for allowing me to share what I love.”

      Saskia B. Mahler (Germany)

      • Shashi is a certified RYT 500hr Hatha Yoga & 500h Aerial Yoga plus manager and lead instructor at ULU Yoga.  After studying law Shashi did several years of intensive trainings and retreats in India and Thailand to study metaphysics, energetics yoga and Buddhist philosophy.  Shashi unfolds her passions for the life changing power of Yoga with the creation of Aerial Restorative and Aerial Prenatal courses.
      • Her fiery passion and infectious laughter serve as a transformative inspiration for students and the entire school.  Shashi’s aim is it to show the compassionate way of self-healing through the opening and acceptance of the body and curiosity of the depth within.  She is dedicated to share the invaluable gift yoga has to offer for the overall well being and happiness for all.

      Edward Pawlak (USA)

      • Edward is a E-200-RYT Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga instructor, is certified in traditional Thai massage, completed several Buddhist meditation courses, and has taught over 2000 hours of Aerial Yoga.  Edward started yoga in 2007, studying mainly in India and California.  In 2014 Edward created ULU Yoga, which has now lead over 100 trainings and retreats around the world.

      ______________________________ 

      Are You ULU?

      • We originally chose the name ULU simply because it sounded nice and had no meaning in English, like AUM.  After getting into aerial we surprisingly learned it meant owl in Hindi.
      • The owl is like an aerial yogi who sits in quiet meditation, peering through the darkness to dispel ignorance and illuminate the true nature of reality.  He then flies into action with wisdom and skill to achieve his goal.  ULU also means whirlwind or crazy in arabic languages, where they say “Are you ULU?”. 
      • We define ULU as Universal Love and Understanding.  All together this summarises perfectly ULU Yoga’s love for traditional yoga and crazy styles like aerial, which can serve to uplift and unite humanity. 

      ______________________________ 

      What to Bring

      • ULU Yoga provides aerial yoga swings, yoga mats, printed manuals and drinking water.  You can bring or buy here a water bottle or personal yoga mat and yoga towel.  You should also buy a SIM card at the airport for good wi-fi. 

      Visa

      • The At the airport you can get a 30 day visa for $35, which you can extend for another 30 days.  Let us know if you need a letter for immigration.

      • The most breathtaking and life-changing experience of my life! I started with the 50hrs aerial teacher training but soon the wonderful people of this yoga teacher training program healed my soul and I couldn’t believe it but the magic was operating.  I had to extend my stay in order to complete the full 200hrs TTC and that was the best decision!  Shashi represents the beauty of human beings so wonderfully that it is contagious!  She helped me believing in myself again after years of doubts!  Her resources are endless and the way she shares it with love and passion is a blessing to this world!
      • Edward deserves a medal for what he did! He has built this whole thing with his heart in order to truly help people.  When someone is so passionate about what he does it is a blessing to be close in any way to this project.  One of the best teachers I had on my path!  Thank you endlessly for creating this opportunity for us! ULU Yoga isn’t only gonna give you the ability to become a multi style yoga teacher but they hand you the key to love in abundance!  They’ve changed me and the way I perceive life and its surroundings!  No money in there world can pay off what ULU Yoga and they’re wonderful teachers have given to me!

      • I had the best experience with Ulu!  The setting was on an island in Thailand- the resort was right next to the beach, and the weather was beautiful!!!  There was a breakfast buffet everyday, which was amazing.  And the beach (Haad Yao) was so picturesque.  There were several instructors, and they were all amazing and knowledgeable!  I loved how they put an emphasis on safety and how the poses are for each person's body.  The course was a lot more intense than I had anticipated- but you learn a lot, and you get a lot of teaching practice.  I took the 200hr multi-style course, so I had the pleasure of experiencing SUP yoga (on a paddle-board), acroyoga, aerial yoga, yin, hatha, vinyasa, and even a taste of ashtanga.  
      • Every instructor was wonderful, and I truly enjoyed learning from each and every one of them: Vik, Cody, Karen, Edward, Jennie, Minty, and the assistant: Becky.  Everyone at both Ulu and Bounty Resort was super kind and helpful.  One of my peers fell off a motorbike while on the island, and I had hurt my shoulder.  The instructors were very understanding of our situations.  Edward even let me borrow his phone when mine had broken.  I would 100% recommend ULU for your yoga teaching program, and I would do the program again in a heartbeat:)  I still miss the island and all the people on it!

      • I've just completed my 200 hours and had an absolutely amazing experience.  The amount of care and support I received with my colleagues was beyond my expectations.  Edward was extremely accommodating, taking care in such a productive way to make sure I had a safe and positive experience.  He helped me find my footing in Koh Phangan and offered recommendations as well as an amazing introduction to aerial yoga.  Shashi gave 110% of herself to every session even after an unfortunate injury (non-yoga related).  She seamlessly stitched things together for us with additional workshops and opportunities to keep the focus on growth and development which was absolutely well done and inspiring.
      • Viktoria went above and beyond to pour her heart into all of us seeking to understand the true meaning of yoga and healing.  One hug from her can inspire you for the entire course if you let it.  Alon was hands down the most technical instructor I've ever had the pleasure of learning from.  His sense of humour brought the perfect balance of lightness and attention to every session.  He gave us the willpower to push ourselves and become the best version of ourselves for ourselves.  There were also a few others who guest appeared in the course and brought wonderful diversity and variety to the experience.  Overall incredible.  I would have stayed another 200 hours if life allowed.  10/10, I highly recommend.
