SUPER BODY SUPER BRAIN ASIA TOUR HIGHLIGHT

Wow! What a great and fascinating 2 week tour i  had in Asia! I never thought that my program will take me as far as Asia and here I am!  I remember growing up and being fascinated by great figures like Columbus or Marco Polo and here i am as far as Asia wow! Just got back yesterday from the greatest cities of Singapore and Jakarta. To be honest i was so extremely intimidaded by the tip regarding the hours on a plane that i asked for a business class ticket, i know like a New York Diva hahah and I was not happy with it but didnt know how i suppose to do a 24 hour flight and then a 12 hour work journey so i looked around my clients and one of them helped get a business class ticket with the greatest company of Cathay Pacific under $2,000! that was my budget to travel.

How did this tour start? Everything started with a simple communication from Tina Maladi the owner of a great Yoga program called Yoga Jakarta Kids who proposed my name for the upcoming festival called  Namaste Yoga Festival, one of the most important health festivals in the South East Asia region. The organization was so great that I even got a sponsor to promote the festival and my classes, my great sponsor was a great Library for children called “The Open Book Children Library” 

NAMASTE FESTIVAL JAKARTA

So my tour started in Singapore and wanted to know more how the Singapore fitness market is booming and asking for my program. Asia is a tradition a Easter health and Mind culture that is why my program is fitting very well in that area. After few days of being there I embarked and flew to Jakarta to start my 8 day tour. There were many highlights that it would be imposible to summarize here but the most important is that i was selected to be in the faculty of the Kids and Parenting Program at the Namaste Festival in Jakarta.

When i was in jakarta many other opportunities arose however. I got booked for National Television, then for Radio,

then i met DY the Chairwoman of Alzheimer Indonesia which expressed great amount of interest in developing my program for patients with ALzheimer Disease as you can see there are many studies supporting how exercise improves the condition of the patient living with Alzheimer and since the International Congress of Alzheimer is happening in Indonesia what a great opportunity to collaborate in developing a specific exercise program for Early and Intermediate Advance Alzheimer Disease. My program got a huge grant from the Hospital in the Midwest for Parkinson disease so for few years now I started getting interested in working with patients with Alzheimer disease.

Then the following day i went to to the International School of Jakarta, ACG where i conducted a workshop seminar of My program Super Body, Super Brain to 8 great teachers from various backgrounds including elementary, physical education and math. They were really interested in how physical exercise can help kids to improve their grades but also modulate behavior. So after 3 hours of seminar school teacher loved it and I received great feedback and also it was the first school of implementing a Super Body, Super Brain Program in the Asia region

One day before leaving to Singapore i met one of the most fascinating man i have ever met his name is  Juli Triharto ‏@JuliTriharto and he is the creator of one of the most innovative ways of losing weight called Mind Slim Program. It is an advanced method of losing weight with Hypnoetherapy. I had a great productive meeting brainstorming how we can work together and get an individualized Super Body, Super Brain Program for Mind Slim and I am so extremely excited since I can see how our both programs can work together

Then before getting on a plane to Singapore the chairwoman of Alzheimer Indonesia asked me to please record a session with her lovely mother since we were planning to explain the importance of physical exercise with patients and movement and alzheimer. I shared my experience working with several patients with this devastating condition.

It was December 2nd and I was ready to go back to Singapore. I arrived in Singapore December 3rd and I got booked for News Channel Asia a great Tv show with Susant and Steven very similar to the Today Show, so we did a great 8 minute segment! can you believe it 8 minutes!
