During his formative, years Caya lived in an intentional community dedicated to meditation, yoga and natural living. This made an impact on his life. He developed an interest in the therapeutic significance of food and herbs in his teens, around when he began practicing martial arts and qigong. This enabled him to overcome health challenges he encountered naturally and without pharmaceuticals. Caya eventually began teaching yoga, qigong, martial arts and became a Reiki practitioner. He co-founded a yoga and martial arts center in his early twenties before pursuing further study in yoga asana & pranayama, and degrees in neuro-fascial therapy, biomechanical therapies, acupuncture and East Asian medicine. Caya has lead courses and seminars in universities, public schools, wellness centers and has clinical experience working within hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
