ABOUT LEIGH KHOO
Yoga found Leigh 12 years ago, in a tiny Keong Saik Road shophouse studio. As much as she enjoyed working up a good sweat, it was the meditation practice after the asana sessions that really drew her in. Her teacher Sunil Dahiya used to ask: “Where are you in your body? Meditate on that.” That set the tone for Leigh’s yoga journey. While she naturally inclines towards strong vinyasa sequences, she also has an insatiable appetite to learn about the deeper philosophies of yoga and meditation, which she believes are key to unlocking the wisdom of our consciousness.
Leigh lives life guided by her heart and gut, and that was what gave her the intuitive faith to leave a full-time job in magazine publishing to pursue her yoga studies in 2013 with Bali-based Anusara teacher Emily Kuser. She later trained with Power Yoga founder Bryan Kest and renowned Yin Yoga teacher Jo Phee. Interestingly, all her teachers are advocates of meditation. As a sickly child, Leigh was nursed back to health by an Ayurvedic doctor, and that sparked her interest in holistic healing. She currently studies Ayurvedic healing with America-based teacher Dr. David Frawley.
Through her years of teaching, Leigh has learned to understand and, more importantly, respect anatomical differences, and she encourages practitioners to tune in to their inner alignment — asanas that look right on the outside may not necessarily feel so within. Her classes are dynamic and flowing, but also mindful and contemplative, especially when she is teaching yin yoga and meditation (her favourite!). She is greatly inspired by the written word, which she often shares in the form of quotes, stories and poetry in class.
When she's not on the mat, Leigh is a hungry reader and a voracious traveller, and she loves seeking out destinations for her next Living Yoga retreats. You're also likely to find her at Bollywood dancing, which she loves for its carefree exuberance! She sees life as the greatest teacher of all, with every moment (especially the challenging ones) serving as an opportunity to connect to our deepest self, so as to live with compassion, intention and integrity — that to her is yoga in action, and the most important practice of all.
ABOUT FLOYDD WOOD
South African-born Floydd was introduced to yoga in 2004 while living in Shanghai: it was a natural fit for mind and body. Curious by nature, he continued to experiment with various movement practices, including Bikram, Iyengar, Ashtanga, partner yoga, ballet, pole and contemporary dance — and even circus arts!
From 2006, as he established his professional life in Singapore's fast-paced world of brand strategy, yoga became the cornerstone of his approach to health and wellness.
His affection for the spiritual, emotional and physical benefits of yoga saw him complete his 200hr Vinyasa Teacher Training in 2015, alongside training in Yin Yoga (Traditional Chinese Medicine and Myofascial Release), and Children's Yoga. He is also a certified Kundalini Reiki Master, and Sound Therapy practitioner, often incorporating these influences into yoga practices.
Floydd teaches Yang yoga the way he practises: strong, enjoyable dance-inspired sequences that open and energise mind, body and spirit. He has a special affection for Yin Yoga - for its tranquil process and effective results.
He hopes to both educate and inspire students to improve their personal yoga experience - while both respecting and celebrating their bodies.
