Why am I a Yogini?
After starting yoga as a way to rehab a badly broken arm in 2013, I realised the potential of a dedicated practice. I took a Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training course in India in 2016, with the simple intention of deepening my own practice, but the experience and knowledge gained was so wonderful, I decided to share what little I knew with whoever was interested! I strongly believe teaching yoga is about giving back to the community, and for that reason, donate a portion of my earnings to a different charity every quarter. Since I began teaching, I have worked with charities in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Tanzania, India and Australia. Yoga teaches me how to use my energy wisely, and provides rest and comfort when needed.
I enjoy teaching Hatha and Restorative Yoga, and also teach ‘fitness category’ classes such as Yoga for Athletes. I incorporate mindful movement into many of my classes, as I believe it can lead to a greater understanding and application of more traditional yoga postures.Looking towards the future, I would like to pursue more specialised training in Yin yoga, yoga for children and massage therapy. I am also keen to work with children with learning difficulties and with people in prisons.

Hwee went to Kaivalydham in Lonavla, Pune, India, one of the oldest yoga school in world, in 2017. Through her personal experience of managing her injuries & pain, she is mindful in giving modifications for all body types during asana practice.
Hwee searched for a deeper meaning & an identity in life during depression in 2013 which led her to the practice of meditation. She eventually found Bhakti Yoga, a mindful way of lifestyle.
As an advocate of mindfulness, she believes that the objective of practising yoga is to increase self awareness.
Yoga has been a part of Bee Lee’s life for over 15 years, and has pushed her to live every moment mindfully. Practicing yoga has allowed her to grow stronger, both on and off the mat. In her classes, she loves including gentle, meditative poses that strengthen bodily awareness. With the aim of helping her students to deepen their practice by pushing their physical and mental boundaries, Bee Lee hopes that they will step off the mat feeling grounded and refreshed after each session.

Why am I a yogini?
After starting yoga in 2010 to bounce back from a depressive illness, I saw the potential of a regular yoga practice. Since then yoga has been a way of life for me, a place where the magic never goes away. I attended a Purna Yoga Traditional Teacher Training Course Santiago de Chile , Chile in 2018/2019. A comprehensive 2-year training at the renowned and oldest yoga school in Chile, Yoga Sakhyam.
The approach of Purna Yoga is the systematic work to deepen consciousness
of the 3 indivisible aspects of man:
body, through the asanas.
mind, through meditation.
Emotions through the pranayamas.
In addition to the Purna Yoga styles, I teach Yin Yoga and Breathwork classes. I completed my training as a Yin Yoga teacher here in Singapore at tirisula Yoga. I am also a certified Breathwork Instructor (Yogalap) and Yoga Nidra Instructor (Bodsphere).
In addition to yoga, another passion is sound healing. Since 2023 I am a certified sound healer for the crystal singing bowls. Another step of my spiritual education.
The focus of my yoga classes is the human being as a whole. Yoga should be accessible to everyone and should address the body, soul and spirit. This holistic approach to teaching runs through my classes.

Yoga Teacher (Cover Teacher)
Marissa trained as a doctor in London, and completed her 200hr YTT in Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow in Goa. She has a love for the holistic practice of yoga and discovered the joy of sharing her practice with others through the YTT. She started Karma Yoga - Giving Back, with the intention of reminding us of the inter-connectedness of things and to practice gratitude in our daily lives. All proceeds received by Karma Yoga goes fully to charity, allowing us to give back to others through our yoga practice, in appreciation of our own blessings in life.
Her teaching style incorporates instructions to fully understand the alignment and intended benefits of each pose to help us practice with a deeper connection to our body and reduce potential for injury. A self-acknowledged ‘stiff yogi’, she hopes to debunk the misconception that you need to be ‘flexible’ to practice yoga. Yoga is less about how you look in a pose and all about how you feel.
