shirlyn tan

Shirlyn started her yoga journey in 2015 with an intention of trying out something new from the cardio workouts that satisfied her constant need for a sweat fest. Since then, she has been showing up on the mat day after day and is constantly intrigued by the amazing new discoveries about herself through the practice that taught her to simply breathe, just be and watch the magic happen, on and off the mat.

 

Shirlyn is a huge believer of Sthira Sukham Asanam and strives to inspire her students to find steadiness and comfort in every pose; and push her students a little further to reveal that strength that they already have regardless of the fear they believe.

lc chong

​For LC, yoga is a daily expression of gratitude for a body she never felt comfortable in growing up. The first time she did yoga was pure, sweaty joy. From that point on, the search for improvement in the physical asanas led her onto the mat each day to practise. Little did she know, she was developing a daily Sadhana, one that would root her and guide her when things get tough.


LC’s classes are designed to lead practitioners in exactly the same way she was led- by focusing on the joy of movement, getting comfortable in their own skin, and encourage them to develop a daily practice. Through that, students can then begin to cultivate a relationship with themselves, and learn to find contentment in being just as they are.
