I am Worakamon Veeger, people call me “Nok” that is my Thai nickname. I was born and raised in a small village in the northeast region of Thailand with lots of rice fields, generous people and a peaceful environment. My childhood memories are filled with lots of fun such as; going to my grandparents house after school finished and had very delicious foods from my grandmother, joining many of school-community events (parades, sport competitions, traditional Thai dancing shows, singing with school music band etc.), visiting temples on full moon days with my family and other people from the whole village where we chanted and listened to the preach, riding buffalo to our rice farm with my aunt (we used buffalo for ploughing), exploring different kinds of animals in the rice fields, camping in a small hut with my parents for a week to take care of the harvested rice until it finished.
I moved to a big city to study. I studied Science and got a job in Bangkok as an air traffic controller. I have worked in several air traffic control towers for years. According to my working schedule, it was possible to study in the weekend and it could be beneficial for my career path. Therefore I studied master degree in Social science. I have developed new aspects and knew people from various careers.
Moving to the Netherlands is a big decision. I was willing to experience my new lifestyle with full of hopes. Anyway I could not continue my career. Thankful to this situation I have discovered my childhood dream. I always wanted to study abroad in English program so I decided to study bachelor degree in Information Communication and Technology in Eindhoven. It was very challenging but I fully committed. I love studying with my ICT friends. It was a great experience.
I love exercising, reading and cooking. In Thailand I like aerobic dance in the park. Here in the Netherland I like going to gym. I join almost every types of group workouts. After class I would stay and enjoy chatting with the gym members for awhile. It is such a fun way to learn Dutch as well. I have become a group lesson instructor including yoga. Regularly I meet my friends to cook together and have good spicy thai foods.
My interest in Yoga has started because of one lesson I taught at the gym. I have bought books about Yoga and want to know more about benefits of Yoga. The first beautiful bond between me and yoga has created when I decided to attend the Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in Amsterdam. I have found peace from within and much more than I would ever expected to learn. I have joined advanced modules to deepen my study. I love teaching yoga because it is a spiritual practice. My first experience with Ashtanga Mysore Style has brought me further on yoga path. I continue deepen my study with Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with Yogaplace with fully trust that the light of yoga within me will beautifully shine. With deeply gratitude to all my teachers, I have developed as a human being and as a yoga practitioner/teacher. I have integrated yoga philosophy into my daily life and been very grateful to have opportunity to share to other people.
Share the love!
