Emilia started her personal yoga journey in 2010 and has been teaching yoga since 2017. Yoga has become a way of life for her and she is passionate in trying to pass on the gift of yoga to anyone seeking a healthier lifestyle. She is definitely more focused about practicing yoga as a body and mind wellness rather than just a physical fitness, using yoga to help with restoring and healing the body and mind.

Emilia’s classes aim to be a mindful meditative practice involving breathing exercises together with the physical practice. This helps with bringing a mental and physical awareness to the present moment and learning to listen and respect the body.

Gina is a reliable, dedicated and motivated yoga instructor with a passion to promote health and wellness through yoga. She is looking for opportunities to help others reap the same rewards as she has of the holistic practice.

Gina wants to be better today than she was yesterday. She believes that yoga is not about whether one can perfect a pose or touch their toes, but developing the ‘invisible muscle’ to understand one’s body and mind with all their limitations, and nurture the power to elevate themselves to the physical and mental level that they want.

Jaszmine Lau

Jaszmine Lau

Jasz believes that yoga is for everyone. Whether it is for physical, mental or spiritual development, yoga says it all. A simple asana (yoga posture) if done with proper awareness could reap benefits as good as a challenging one.

She observes that most people feel intimidated in a yoga class when they could not perform an asana; while others stay at a respectful distance from the practice thinking that flexibility is a requirement. Jasz would love to share the yoga practice with everyone, help people see the beauty and benefits of the practice, and invite all to explore this inner journey together.

A strong believer of lifelong learning, Jasz completed her 200 hours teacher’s training with Sri Ramananda Yoga Ashram in 2016 and started coaching private and group students. And just recently, she returned from Mysore, India, after a 100-hour intensive training in yoga asanas, pranayamas, yoga philosophy, chanting and meditation. Jasz is also a meditation teacher and facilitates healing workshops. She is a musician and studies the application of sound for physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Noraini Idros

Noraini began her yoga journey in 2012 after going through a major breakdown of depression due to single parenthood and the demise of a family member. She was looking for some activities to keep her mind off it.

After many years of being actively involve with high intensity sports , she developed an early stage of arthritis. She couldn’t do much running or zumba fitness. After she was introduced to Bikram hot yoga, which helped her joint pain, she was hooked. Since then, she has tried other variations of yoga to slowly adjust herself.

Noraini took up a Reiki course to learn more about meditation as well as understand more on Chakras and Aura energy. Over the years, she began to feel more positive and has been off medication for good. She took her 200YTT with Yoga Seeds to learn the basic and foundation of yoga before switching from her corporate job to share this journey with others, e
