My yoga journey started at the age of 15. I have been diagnosed with Scoliosis when I was 12 years old. Since then, I have tried different therapies to relief the pain and discomfort brought by the disease. I was upset, scared and even could not get to sleep at night. That was a dark and tough period of time in my life. Fortunately, I met yoga.
Eventually, it was yoga practice and meditation guided me to find the inner peace of myself and also helped me to build strong and enough muscles to support the body. After that, I became a real yogi; I have been practicing yoga for more than ten years.
In 2017, I decided bring my yoga practice into a higher level by taking yoga teaching course. In 2018, after one year dedicated time to yoga teacher training course, I finished certificate VI 800 hours in yoga teaching at Byron Yoga Centre in the beautiful town where I feel it home –Byron bay. My teaching started since then, I am passionate in teaching and I am always student-oriented. “Safety” is the priority in my class. I believe that when practicing yoga, no matter which level you are or what asana you are holding, breath always comes at the first(because we often forget to breath when practice), then move into the posture, then going deep to the posture if you are available. Always listen to the body and let the body be your guide!
Vinyasa means “to practice in a specific way” in Sanskrit; vinyasa yoga is linked traditional asana posture and breath together to maintain the balance of the mind and body. One breathe one movement, moving with your breathing rhythm. Vinyasa yoga is designed for those who want to deepen their practice and build strength.
It is also suitable for new yogis, different variation will be offered during the practice, and of course, lots of props will be introduced to support you for the practice. This is a good way to connect and bring the awareness to breathe, most importantly, it is a practice to reconnect with the inner self.
Each vinyasa class is consisted of two pranayama (breathing exercises), asana (yoga poses) practice and savasana with a short meditation at the end. Come and practice with the beautiful yogis from all different levels, recharge your body and mind on the mat and to share the wonderful flow energy.
Yin yoga is a slow peaceful practice that to hold each posture for 45 seconds to 2 minutes. Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
Yin yoga will help you to calm and balance the mind and body, reduces stress and anxiety, increase circulation, improve flexibility, releases fascia and improves joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of prana (life force energy within your body). All levels are welcomed!
Restorative yoga is a restful yoga that focusing on connecting to the inner peace. It is different from Yin yoga, but it is also a rejuvenative practice to create space and connection to the inner self, to allow “letting go” and just “being in the present”.
Restorative yoga class will focus on the connection between the physical body and the mind through guided meditation, pranayama and simple asana with lots of props. This is a wonderful practice to bring the healing energy to the body and also to feel “grounding” of the mind.
