I firmly believe that Yoga is for everyone
and I have taken it as my mission to prove that to as many people as possible
Have you ever felt lost and out of place in a Yoga class? Maybe you concluded this is just not for you… and never came back.
You are not alone. Why? I found that it’s partially because there’s a lot of teachers out there that go to class to do their practices, and have others follow.
Being a good Yogi doesn’t make a good teacher
A good teacher pays attention to the student. I don’t teach big groups because of this. That’s what motivated me to become a Yoga teacher.
You can find me in Singapore.

Instagram has done a lot of damage. You don’t need a specific kind of body to do Yoga. You don’t need to be super fit, bendy or be able to touch your toes. You don’t have to be a gymnast, an athlete, or an acrobat from Cirque Du Soleil.
You just need one thing: to want to do Yoga.
Buddha said: ‘When the student is ready the teacher will appear’ – If you made it this far maybe It’s because you have reached that point. Maybe It’s time try a different type of Yoga class.
WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is an ancient philosophy to live a healthier and happier life. It includes postures, gestures, breathing techniques, relaxation and a certain change of mindset too.
When you put your focus (your mind), your breath (your energy) and your body into something, the effect is much stronger than simple exercise and it has a profound effect in your entire being.
The aim of the Yoga posture is to obtain certain physical and mental benefits. I believe that every posture can be adapted to the student with the help of variations, props and the guidance of the teacher. This is the philosophy of BKS Iyengar and the principle I apply in my classes so that my sessions are as inclusive as possible and everybody gets what I call the “feel good factor”
The purpose of Yoga is not to be able to perform certain postures. The advanced Yoga postures we tend to see people showcase, particularly on social media, are made for those that already don’t feel anything in the simpler versions. Or for those who want to go on a journey of dedicated practice to achieve them. It’s not the aim of Yoga to be able to perform them. BOOM! Myth busted!
It’s a very rewarding experience to be able to achieve them, and of course one should be proud and show the world your achievements, but getting there is not the aim of Yoga. When the student is ready the posture will come, like the teacher.
