Man Hue Duong was a toddler when her family escaped from the Fall of Saigon in 1978. After crossing the South China Sea to Malaysia, she nearly died of a fever in a refugee camp; two years later, her family immigrated to the U.S. and began a new life in Utica, NY.

Man graduated with her AS in Fine Arts at Munson Williams Proctor Institute and continued to work her way through the University of New York at New Paltz, earning a BFA in ceramics and BS in art education and later, a Masters in art education from Queen’s College.

Man received her 200 hour yoga training at the acclaimed White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. and has also trained at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA., Yoga Sanctuary in Las Vega, NV, and has recently returned from a month long yoga training in Bali with Noah Maze. She is currently completing her Labor and Postpartum Doula certification through CAPPA (Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association).

She has spent the last decade in Las Vegas, producing unique ceramic art and teaching art and yoga to children and adults of all ages. She has recently relocated back to central New York and is excited to continue sharing her passions in art, yoga, childbirth/family care, and the exploration of the human potential.
