I have so much energy, love and inspirations to share with you.
After 10 years working in Finance & Investments, I took a leap of faith, became a yoga teacher and launched myself into the adventures of making an impact on other people's life.
The seeds of those adventures started in 2012 when I stepped on a yoga mat for the first time, discovering all the strange things it does to my body and my mind. I have travelled a long journey since then, both externally and internally within myself. I have a lot of people to thank for this journey, every minute of which was meant to happen to bring me to exactly where I am supposed to be. Along this journey, yoga has changed my life in so many incredible ways, so I made it my mission to help other people experience those changes too.
I have a dream to make yoga accessible and meaningful to everyone, on and off the mat. I dream that each and every one of us is doing some forms of yoga, for the body or for the mind. I dream that the good wisdom we absorb from the ancient yogic teachings encourage each of us to nurture this planet to become a better place to live, for ourselves and for our next generations.
How do I teach yoga?
Expect my classes to be:
Challenging. With the technical details to help you practice from a strong foundation to avoid injuries. Challenges are where you start to grow, one step at a time.
Balanced. Between Strength and Flexibility to help you improve and sustain your Mobility.
Free. I respect your individual freedom and personal choices in your practice.
Non-competitive, non-judgmental and playful. What if we can make lifelong friends while practicing yoga?
Autonomous. Find yourself gradually able to practice on your own after some time under my teaching.
What Teacher Trainings have I accomplished?
Life is continuous learning. With 10 years of practice, I have been learning on and off the record from so many great teachers from India, Singapore, Australia, America, Vietnam and a few countries in Europe. Transferring that knowledge to other students requires special trainings, which were some of the best experiences in my life:
200HR Hatha Vinyasa, Yoga Mala, Singapore
60HR Yin Yoga, Sampoorna, India (Online)
20HR Yoga Therapy, Level I, Zenergy, Australia
27HR Children Yoga, Rainbow, Singapore
Heart of Yoga with Mark Whitwell (Online)
15HR Art of Meditation, Awakened Spirit, Canada
10HR Advanced Pranayama and Physiology of Breath, Awakened Spirit, Canada (Online)
What teaching experience do I have ?
I have been teaching yoga in group classes since 2017, starting right after my first Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Mala in Singapore. At the same time, I was a volunteer yoga teacher at the Institute of Mental Health in Singapore to mental patients for approximately one year in 2018.
In addition, I have also been leading yoga classes for corporate teams in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Since 2020, I divide my time between teaching group classes at Nami Yoga Studio in Tokyo, Japan and private classes with students in Singapore, Australia and Tokyo, both in-person and online classes.
