Mien is a qualified and accredited yoga teacher and has been teaching yoga since 2011. She is equally at ease teaching a basic or an advance yoga class, and highly enjoys guiding Yoga Nidra and Meditation sessions. She believes that yoga, when practiced with awareness, creates change in the individual and restores one to a state of balance, peace and equanimity. Her greatest satisfaction in teaching is seeing students finding relaxation after every class.
She enjoys Yogic philosophy as well, and teaches the Theory and Philosophy section in the Teacher Training Course. Her teachers from the Bihar School of Yoga parampara are her greatest source of strength and inspiration. To maintain awareness in everyday life is her work in progress.
Melissa has been practicing yoga since 2012. She was a certified yoga teacher since 2015. In 2016, when she was 24-weeks pregnant, she joined Jennifer More’s Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in Ubud, Bali to learn and feel the benefits of prenatal yoga on her pregnant body. It geared her up for labour and was spared from back pain during pregnancy. When she moved to Singapore in 2019, she decided to join the 200-Hr YTT at Yoga Mala Singapore to deepen her understanding and hone her teaching skills.
For Melissa, being a yoga teacher is more than just giving cues for poses; it’s about giving positive impact to the lives of those who join her class. It can be on the physical level which relate to their health or non-physical level which relate to the peace of mind. Nothing can compare to the contentment of leading a yoga class, especially seeing the students’ relaxed and happy faces after practice.
