Deep Rest: An Intentional New Year's Eve Practice with Meiyan Cheong & Angeline Chia, Dec 31

Orchard Central
Saturday, December 31, 2022 
10am - 12pm 

We invite you to join us this New Year’s Eve, for an intentional 2-hour practice led by Meiyan, with sound bath accompaniment by Angeline. The first 30 minutes of the practice will be yang-focused, where we explore movement meditation before eventually settling into stillness for the remaining 90-minute Yin & meditation practice.

In our Yin practice, we will observe stillness and patience, reminding ourselves to be present in the moment before it passes us by. Through sound healing, we will allow our senses to immerse in deep relaxation, with appreciation and gratitude for the lessons that have been revealed to us this year.

In our closing meditation, we will be gently guided towards a restful closing of the year, ready to welcome the arrival of 2023 with clarity and renewed intentions.

The sound vibrations from the crystal singing bowls and other accompanying instruments will support us in experiencing deepened states of relaxation throughout the yin practice, as well as a gentle ease into our meditation practice.

You are welcome to bring your journals for reflection for a quiet moment to yourself after the session.

ABOUT MEIYAN CHEONG



Since her regular yoga practice began in 2014, yoga has brought Meiyan closer to understanding her true self and learning to honour it. She hopes to guide her students on their own individual paths towards finding balance, love, and light both on and off the mat.

As a swimmer and biathlete in her university days, movement involved a stopwatch, while progress meant measurable results, goals, and a great deal of expectations towards herself. Yoga came into her life at a time when letting go and trusting served her much more than holding on and controlling–a lesson that she is still working on till this day.

Meiyan fell in love with the freedom she experienced from a vinyasa class, and embarked on her 200 hour teacher training in 2016. Within that same year, she left her corporate marketing job and dove head first into teaching yoga full time. She later completed her 300 hour teacher training in 2022 with a specialised focus in yin, vinyasa, philosophy and mindfulness, and passionately incorporates these elements into her own 200 hour teacher training curriculum.

As a practitioner and a teacher, Meiyan gravitates towards various forms of sound healing. She enjoys theming her classes around mantras and sometimes brings an instrument or two to class for her students to enjoy the relaxing and introspective effects of sound. Her lesson on finding balance continues to inspire her teaching as she explores the dualistic energies of Yin & Yang: Grounding & Uplifting, Comfort & Challenge, Striving & Letting go. It comes as no surprise that her favourite styles to teach are Vinyasa and Yin.

Regardless of the style of practice, a mantra she has held close in her teaching and personal practice for many years is the simple reminder “you are enough".

Outside of yoga, Meiyan can be found soaking in the water under the sun, arranging flowers for her loved ones, or enjoying some introvert time with her three cats at home. She co-owns Lighthouse Adventure Co, a Singapore based dive center and travel agency, with a group of good friends.

ABOUT ANGELINE CHIA



The beginning of Angeline’s relationship with yoga rose out of necessity when she was in search of an avenue to help cope with emotional stress. Since 2012, she has been through periods of regular asana practice, as well as extended periods off her mat. She has learnt to become compassionate with herself over the years, and believes that yoga is here to support you in the way you need it—some days fiery and dynamic, some days quiet and contemplative; the list of the many facets of a yoga practice goes on.

Whatever your reason may be for practice, Angeline invites you to align your intentions with the choices you make on and off your mat—a marriage of your heart and throat chakra that brings to surface your true authentic self. Each practice is an opportunity that invites you to hold space, observe and witness your decisions and the impact it can have on you.

Apart from yoga, Angeline’s life experiences naturally prompted her to extend her learning journey towards other energy modalities such as reiki, sound healing, and channeling higher perspectives through intuition readings. She also expresses herself through emotive illustration art which she shares under the handle @LilTeddyStudio, lovingly named after her son, who has inspired Angeline’s many occasions of courage since his birth.
