Fathan Todjon is originally from Depok, a small suburban city just outside of Jakarta. Today, Todjon is based in Bali, where he has been living since 2016, offering his services as resident yoga teacher at Samadi and Serenity, both yoga centers located in Canggu.
Todjon was originally drawn to yoga as a form of a spiritual practice for the soul as well as a mindful exercise for mind and body. Though Todjon’s main practice at the moment is Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin, his practice is always a mix of various disciplines as he studies various styles of yoga and spirituality.
“My career as a yoga teacher began in 2014. Here, I received a full training scholarship from my teacher, Dini Maharani, in Jakarta. I also have a deep interest in bodyworks and I am a registered therapist of Thai Massage under the guidance of Mr. Therdchai Chumphoopong in his school in Chiang Mai.”
Todjon’s classes are often recognized by his students as soulful and fun, as he focuses on sharing yoga and massage as a practice of healing and liberation, to set the inner child within alive again.
“I’m also a creative worker; I write movie scripts, I draw, and I play music as an ecstatic dance DJ. I believe that yoga has helped me a lot to see things in new and different perspectives and it has transformed me into being a more creative person.”
“I have been sharing my passion and love for yoga in many studios, workshops, and festivals, and I am always excited to share more in a safe and productive environment. Now, I am based in Bali, offering my service as a resident yoga teacher at Samadi and Serenity, both located in Canggu.”
