Yun Ng

One of the first few yoga classes that Yun took was in 2003. The class was held in a large, dusty dance studio, filled with dedicated yogis. Her aunt, to whom she owes her yoga practice to, was there with her. She was blessed to have met many inspiring teachers from all over the world, which led to her first yoga teaching certification in 2010.

Yun’s curiosity and hunger for knowledge keeps her on the mat and fuels her desire to learn and evolve every single day. The teachers who have influenced her practice include Pema Chodron, whose books have shaped the way she approaches life and pain; Hamid Ebadi, whose teachings in psychology and zazen meditation leaves a permanent imprint in her navigation through her yoga journey; Anusara teachers, Ross Rayburn and Sianna Sherman, whose teachings have made up the foundation of her yoga experience. She also owes her knowledge and creative inspiration to her community of friends, who are also yoga teachers. These people help her get on her mat everyday for many years. Most recently, her focus and forage into contortion, hand balancing and endurance running have kept her inspired and awake.

Singapore, Paris, Bali and Hong Kong are few of the places where Yun has practised, taught and lived yoga. She continues to bring this explorative nature to her classes, through creative sequencing, insightful alignment cues, and a mantra or two. Yun wants her students to create a seamless transition in and out of the yoga mat—using tactical skills from yoga (from the sutras to a handstand) to make sense of the world around them. Yun believes that compassion and kindness are also a practice, so expect Bhakti yoga with singing and chanting in some of her classes!
