Ekatala Yoga (एकताल योग)
Bosco Baek has been learning Himalayan Raja Yoga traditional studies from Ji-Myoung Park since 1996.  From 1998 to 2003, before Bosco Baek came to the United States, he learned classical yoga therapy from Hyun-Soo Kim, who was a founder of Korea Yoga Academy and Spine Yoga Therapy.  In 2006, when the Mohans opened the first ‘Svastha Yoga’ teacher course in Chicago, Mr. Baek studied with A.G. Mohan in Yoga therapy, Ayurveda and classical yoga texts, including Upanishad, Bhagavad Gita and Vedic Chanting.
Bosco Baek extracted his previous teachings from his three teachers and combined them into  ’एकताल ‘Ekatala’ yoga, whose meaning is 'harmony, unison or accurate adjustment'.  This yoga study contains classical Raja, Hatha and Yoga Therapy.  It has no religious bias and represents a very scientific approach based upon anatomy and physiology.
Bosco Seung-Chul Baek is also the sole disciple in the USA of Master Chen Bing who is a 20th generation representative of Chen Family Taiijquan.  Mr. Baek has studied traditional Chen Family Taijiquan since 2000 along with his yoga studies. He also studied Chinese Hygiene Qigong in 1992, and was a former professor of Tai Chi at Samra University. He graduated from Loyola University Chicago and majored in biology.
Bosco Baek currently runs the Chen Bing Taiji Academy in Los Angeles and teaches classical Chen Family Taijiquan and Ekatala Yoga.
