Shan has love yoga for 10 years. She started practicing yoga for about 2 years after SPM until she was offered a teaching position in her hometown,Perak. She likes the yoga postures and she feels powerful and confident during her yoga practice.

Our life is full of challenges. Shan stopped her yoga practice after she started working in KL. She is hardworking and responsible but somehow life is not only about working. When incidents happened, she felt insecure, stressed and ill tempered during those period. She started to realize that she has lost herself, she can’t find the smile on her face and she can’t find the happiness inside the bottom of her heart.

Maybe this is the present sent by God because Shan met her teacher, R2. R2 encouraged her to attend the 200-hours yoga teacher training course. She appreciated R2 so much that she registered for the course after some consideration. She felt happy meeting everyone there, “you and me, we all are same”, she gained a lot of knowledge from Guru Yogi Amitram and also teacher Jeremy. She started to bnecome interested to know more about yoga and also the anatomy of our body which was a very fun lesson during the training class. Besides that, she loves to see the postures of teacher Iryne and she is inspired by Iryne so much as well as the practical and techniques learning from R2 and Iryne. Yoga makes beautiful people meet each other. Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony.

Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation. Shan strongly believes that yoga can train our mind, body and breathing, as well as connecting with our spirituality, improves flexibility, strength, balance, stamina, mental clarity, helps in reducing anxiety, stress and promoting good sleep. By improving circulation, stimulating the abdominal organs, and placing pressure on the glandular system, all these can generally lead to better health.

For Shan, as certicfied teacher, she has the responsibility to share it out! Share yoga to others, share positivity to others and also happiness. Her class is focusing more on Hatha yoga: gentle flow and also restorative yoga. Yoga is for everyone, to prepare the mind and body for long-term health.
