About Us The Team

The Yogahealer Story

I founded in 2001 to guide Yoga people into Ayurveda and Ayurveda people into yoga. Built on the value of both personal and planetary thrive and a deep connect to one’s ecosystem, community and body, Yogahealer grew into a team, 2 podcasts a week, regular blogging, an arsenal of courses to guide people into their potential, an a professional community + certification program Yoga Health Coaching.

I wrote and self-published Body Thrive: Uplevel Your Body and Your Life with 10 Habits from Ayurveda and Yoga, an Amazon #1 Bestseller in Ayurveda, which helps people who dig yoga take a giant leap forward in their wellness trajectory with Ayurveda.

I’ve had a blast innovating on the edge of a 5000 year old deep wellness wisdom tradition. Tapping modern culture into ancient traditions is what Yogahealer has always been about and continues to become next!

I’m a free-spirited tech junkie that has worked in corporate, non-profit, and for social enterprises. Im a Digital Marketing Specialist by profession, but I’ve also been pursuing design (from graphic design to UI/UX specialization) as a freelancer for several years now.

My hobbies include solo traveling, watching social and cultural documentaries and photography. I have backpacked solo across several countries in South East Asia, and am hoping to meet more of the rest of the world. I also am an active volunteer and advocate for wildlife conservation and sustainable development goals initiatives.

I am more than excited working with YogaHealer as I’ve also started my journey towards aligning with my higher self. Looking forward to creating communities of people sharing the same journey!

KC Sangco

Business Operations and Marketing Support

I started my journey with Yogahealer in May 2019.

I do not have an extensive background in Yoga and Ayurveda so I am very grateful and honored to be part of a team where I can “work and learn” at the same time.

My primary task is to provide administrative support and help ensure the Operations Team is given enough assistance with the projects and tasks it has. I was also given the opportunity to build a connection and strong relationship with our members by officially welcoming them into their courses and helping them with their onboarding needs.

I live in the Philippines, and plan to visit different Asian countries! Outside work, I enjoy my time alone to read manga and watch a lot of anime. I do write journals during my free time as well.
