Who knew? It must be nice to have one of those in the family! Ha!
Dechen Thurman, the brother of Oscar nominated actress Uma Thurman, has traded in the hectic life of a Hollywood actor for a more tranquil lifestyle as a yoga teacher.
After appearing in over a dozen films, including Zoolander, The Truth About Cats & Dogs, and This Is Not An Exit, Dechen has taken up a teaching position at the New York Jivamukti Yoga School as an advanced certified yoga instructor.
Hailed as “a holistic healer based in New York City” who “creates a delicious sense of playfulness in his yoga classes”, Dechen has taught hundreds open-air yoga in classes at the Berlin Yoga Festival.
He'll also be teaching an “intensive retreat” in Italy in July, as well as appearing at other notable festivals like Wanderlust Yoga Festival, New York Yoga Journal Conference, and the Yoga Conference Germany to celebrate and educate others about the ancient practice.
That's so awesome he found his true calling in life and is helping others discover their own path to internal enlightenment. We wish him the best as he continues his spiritual journey!
