T.J. Peng was born in Taipei but his family moved to California when he was 4 years old. A graduate of the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, he is a licensed chiropractor in the state of California and a certified applied kinesiologist from the International College of Applied Kinesiology USA. He also obtained his Bachelor's degree in Biology and Psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. It was during his studies at UCSC when he fell upon yoga accidentally. While trying to learn skateboarding and surfing, a friend suggested he try yoga to help his balance and coordination. Fifteen years later, he is sharing one of his passions and experiences in life with others.

T.J. has studied in the traditions of the late, great yogi Sri T. Krishnamacharya from South India. In this tradition the main focus of the yoga practice is the breath, because the quality of one's breath reflects the quality of one's mind. By combining breath with movement (Vinyasa) this form of yoga becomes a moving meditation. T.J's other Indian teachers have included SN Goenkaji, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, BKS Iyengar, Srivatsa Ramaswami, K. Desikachar, and AG Mohan. He has also studied with American teachers in this lineage including Jasmine Lieb, Annie Carpenter, Julie Kleinman and Eric Small. T.J. is certified from YogaWorks in Santa Monica, California (Lisa Walford, Maty Ezraty and Chuck Miller) and Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado (Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor).
