Juree Rattanatip or "Chulee" was born in Northeastern Thailand. Her grandmother taught her to how to find a focus on meditation as her parents had a hard time getting her to pay attention when she was a child. Later, she took intensive meditation courses. she started to practice Hatha yoga some years later - the seed of Yoga was planted (Yoga tree).

 

Juree believes all kinds of yoga and meditation are good, you just have to discover which one is best for you. She has practiced many varieties of yoga before discovering Ashtanga yoga in Europe in 2015. Ashtanga helped her stay grounded and centered as she was feeling homesick and was struggling to get through her everyday job. Not only Ashtanga, but she also loves the Iyengar alignment's system. “It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence.” —  B.K.S. Iyengar

 

In 2017, she started a new life as a Yoga teacher to pass the ancient knowledge of Yoga and mindfulness on to others. She teaches what she has learned from many amazing teachers and what she has been experiencing from her practices as she believes;

 

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” – the Bhagavad Gita. Buddhists also say "Paccattam veditabbo vinnuhi ti" (It is for the wise to understand and experience). If we hear about the taste of an apple but have never eaten one, we will never know how it tastes. It is the same for yoga. She can teach you all she knows but you may not feel the same as her. You have to discover it by yourself. 

 

Her aim is to help people benefit from the yoga tree (the root “yama”, the trunk “niyama”, the bark “pratyahara”, the sap “dharana”, the branches “asana”, the leaves “pranayama”, the flowers “dyana”, the fruits “samadhi”) with all the 8 limbs of Ashtanga yoga and not only asana like one of her teacher, Maty Ezrat said "At the end of the day, the technical aspects of Trikonasana are not enough. And you cannot get enlightened doing a fancy pose—no matter how perfect it is. It’s just not gonna happen. You have to explore your inner psyche, your mind-stuff, the monkey mind."
