I am Deza, a yoga teacher hails from Kota Kinabalu, Borneo. I teach mainly Gokul Hatha, a holistic practice based on the classical Hatha system which emphasis more on bandha works in asana. I also teach Gokul Vinyasa, slow yoga and prenatal yoga by request.
Despite my academic background, I followed my heart desire and fulfilled my childhood dream to become a writer in Kuala Lumpur before I launched my own business in cosmetic and training industry in 2010. Other than developing my own aromatherapy-based cosmetic range, I worked closely with the Malaysian government to help less-fortunate young women, domestic-abused victims and single mothers to get into employment by providing skills training in beauty services mainly in aromatherapy, holistic massage and makeup.
Yoga in the form of asana crossed my path way back in 2010 when I received a yoga DVD as a gift. It has never developed into anything more than an escape during rainy days until 2013 when I met my asana and spiritual Guru, Mahayogi Gokulacandra das, the founder of Gokul Yoga lineage.
Currently living in beautiful Switzerland with my loving husband, I am embracing the challenge of assimilating to new culture, learning a new language and building a new future away from my home country. For all the blessings I have received, I intend to give back and improve my karma bank balance by teaching yoga, writing and practicing mantra meditation.
I personally believe spirituality exists in various forms and can be transcended in various ways. My aspiration is to keep this space as real and as honest as possible for I am on my personal journey as well. This is my space to grow, to learn and to share my findings and lessons to those who are curious.
Even though I am a yoga teacher, I am forever a student. We all are lifetime students. Feel free to learn alongside me.
Love & light,
◊ Deza ◊
