" To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world" 

WEI SHIMIN

SINGAPOREAN

Shimin has been teaching yoga since 2012, and her foundation is based upon Ashtanga Yoga and mindfulness practice. Yoga is traditionally taught in a small group setting, so that the teacher may guide each student with his/her own abilities and potential. As a holistic practice, yoga includes physical postures (asanas), breathing practice (pranayama), mindfulness (pratyahara), and utmost concentration (dharana). It is non-religious, and the values and philosophy of the yoga practice helps us to be more aware of ourselves both physically and mentally. On the mat - we reap the physical benefits of being stronger and more supple; and, off the mat - we find ourselves more grounded and mentally ready to handle the ups and downs in life as well. 

 

Each class starts with a mindful breathing practice, before we move into the dynamic flow of Sun Salutations. This flow seeks to invigorate the body with steady breathing, and finding flexibility and strength as we move from pose to pose. Our body systems become stimulated and well-regulated, and this helps for natural detox and improved immunity through the yoga practice. There would be a theme for each class, such as Spinal stretching and mobility, Hips opening and strengthening, Core practice, and the last segment would involve restorative stretching to counter balance the more vigorious poses, before we end with a short relaxation.
