Nada Flow with Meiyan Cheong, Jan 15
Sunday, January 15, 2023
2pm - 3pm
Nada means sound, tone, or vibration. When we practice Nada Yoga, we are exploring union through sound as a meditation technique to still the mind. Its intention is of an introspective nature and invites focus on the sound produced within, or the anahata nada.
In this Nada Flow special class with Meiyan, you will be guided by the use of external sound through various instruments, music, and mantras to explore your own internal sound from the heart. As the practice shifts to a more dynamic one, the intention to still the mind and journey inward remains just as powerful, while building discipline and focus.
Arrive, listen, practice and tune inward. We will close our Nada Flow practice with a seated sound meditation.
Free for Yoga Journeyers. Email to sign up.

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.
