Siri Chandler

Siri was born and raised in Bangkok, to Californian parents.  She is a Thai & USA citizen and has been practicing mindfulness for over 30 years and started teaching mindfulness in 2011.

Having experienced the benefits of mindfulness training and realizing the 

need for it in our increasingly stressful, busy, and technologically distracted 

society, she decided to branch out from her profession as an early childhood classroom teacher to bring mindfulness training to children, parents, and educators. From 2012 to 2017 she spent most of her time teaching mindfulness courses in a variety of different international schools in Bangkok and Bali.

In the summer of 2017 she moved to Paknampran, Pranburi where she continues to teach mindfulness in retreat settings, to small groups, privately and online.  Due to no longer living in Bangkok, her area of interest has shifted to teaching Mindful Self-Compassion and Mindfulness for Athletes (introducing people to the skills and tools of mindfulness to help them cultivate peak performance). She also teaches privately and online.
