I teach yoga to everyone: from professional athletes, to pregnant women, to absolute beginners, adapting the practice to the individual's needs and ability. I have been teaching since 1996 and am one of triyoga's original teachers, having taught there since it first opened in 2000. In 2009 I created the Pregnancy Teacher Training to help teachers teach yoga in an empowering and safe way to pregnant women. My own introduction to yoga came at around 18 years old. Feeling very confused and lost I took my first yoga class and instantly felt the feeling of calm and safety I had longed for but never experienced in my life. Born and raised in Hong Kong and with an Indian father, my life up until the age of 15 was in Asia. Growing up around acupuncture and massage was a natural part of our upbringing. It wasn't a 'treat' so much as it was a necessary part of health and well being. For many years to come I traveled all over Asia and India learning as much as I could from complementary and holistic medicine in order to create an integrated feeling of well being not just in the body but in the mind and with the spirit. Becoming aware from a young age that it was all very much interwoven. Mind body and spirit needed to be working together in harmony. I started studying more with some of the world's most renowned teachers, in practices that healed the body and the mind. Also developing an interest in pregnancy yoga and the connection a mother makes with her child in utero and the first few months of life. Teaching each of us how to be in the world from the very start of life. These days I divide my time between my holistic business and teaching. One student described my teaching as balanced and down to earth and another recently described me as fierce and kind. Both descriptions sit about right with me.
