About the Founder
Ms. Albert was born and raised on the island of Palau. In her late twenties, Edee decided to turn her life around. She found Yoga, and, after her first Yoga certification from San Diego, California, she moved to India where she began her conquest in the study of Yoga. And then to Thailand for Qi-gong. During her journey, she fell in love with the idea of teaching Yoga and the practice of Qi-gong. She began studying and learning about Ashtanga Yoga poses, energy work and the science behind it, how it activates Chakras in the human body and its natural healing methods. After much Yoga training abroad, she decided it was time to move back to her homeland, she opened the first yoga studio in Palau “Omkar Yoga”. The word “Omkar” comes from the Palauan Language meaning, “to heal”.
