Makhasiri Budlerd (March)

I have been working with young children more than 10 years now, on a variety of informal and formal education projects. I am enthusiastic and passionate for teaching young children in active activities through the children songs and some art crafts.

As a mother, I have a wonderful time to raise my little one with my work experiences in Playing activities because I believed in the concept of “Learning by doing” because young children will learn and develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional strength through playing.

Engaging young children to keep their attention on each activity is easy when you know how. It can be difficult at first (believe me I know!)  If you are having fun with all active plays, the young children are having fun too!

I’m looking forward to seeing you at The Best Beginning, where I will be able to share my tips and knowledge how to play with your little one.

Rachanee Paosuwan (Ple)

Yoga have been a part of my life since 2005, ever since I fell in love with the inner peace and silence it has brought me in a rather hectic life. Blessed that through Prayanama, I managed to built my awareness and consciousness, I soon started to feel the desire to share this with others as well.

I started teaching yoga classes on a regular basis with a studio in Bangkok from 2009 – 2014 and again for a pre- and post natal yoga course 4 years ago. I have also been an instructor with 2 other studio’s in Bangkok for the past two years on a pre- and postnatal teacher training program. Last year I enrolled into the training program with Birthlight Yoga in Cambridge, United Kingdom where I attended and completed Aquanatal Yoga Level 1 & 2.

Needless to say, throughout the years, I have developed a very strong passion and commitment to the journey of motherhood through yoga in all its facets and stages. I strive to continue to be part of my students life during their pregnancy and guide them, support them and take them by the hand through the wonders of yoga. I just never fail to feel a sense of pride to see women become mothers and to continue to see them grow, together with their newborns, in a next chapter of life.

Phatteera Rangkusol (Ujean)

Greeting! My name is Phatteera Rangkusol, I am a psychology student; graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. I have been interested in children development also way to improve their social skills, emotional confidence, creativity or any physical activities because I truly believe these are the essiential factors for children to grow up effectively.

I have been working with children since I was in my final year of studying (for about a year) and as a psychology student, I must say that the way children grow up does affect the pattern of their lives later on most of the time. Therefore, if we could help them build a solid foundation both physically and mentally then we’re off to a great start for them to live their lives to the fullest.

I really am looking forward to meeting you here so we can work and play together in order to help the babies living their best lives!

My name is Nutch. I graduated from faculty of Psychology, Chulalongkorn university, in the specific interested topics in Child and Family psychology. Now I’m currently studying in Master’s degree of Counseling psychology, Chulalongkorn university, focus on Child & Adolescent counseling, play therapy and family counseling.

I believe that every kid’s development is based on biological, psychological and social factor, and all of them have potential to grow up to be a fully functioning person. By creating safety environment or classroom for them to explore (especially in this age that they will explore things by their mouth due to oral stage) and encouraging parents or caregivers to participate in the class will also be a crucial part in this process.

  • Bachelor of science (Psychology) 1st class honours- Chulalongkorn university

Hi, I am Krist’l D’haene from Belgium. I am a holistic birth worker, a midwife/doula at first and now offering a variety of services so that you can experience pregnancy and parenthood at fullest thanks to mindful support for your body, heart and soul. I teach floor/water yoga, hypnobirthing, childbirth education, baby swimming and offer Thai/Ayurveda/baby massage, craniosacral therapy and Ayurveda food and lifestyle support.

I am currently based in Bangkok. I live in SE Asia since 1996 in Laos, Thailand and Cambodia, mostly working as a midwife with different organizations. I manage to speak the languages and get insight in the culture and the birth/postpartum traditions. I gave birth to my son in Bangkok in 2002. As an expat mom, far away from family and friends, I deeply missed support. Therefor I set up a private practice in Phnom Penh/Cambodia, providing holistic support to pregnant couples from conception into parenting between 2011-2015. The recent 3 years in Belgium allowed me to take more training. I am 59 now and I am very interested in menopause/andropause and how we can manage this time at best with Ayurveda and hormone yoga therapy.

Feel free to contact me and find out how I can help you. I might speak your language!
