Yoga Mala: Surya Namaskar Moving Meditation Special Class with Meiyan Cheong, Jan 2
Sunday, January 2, 2022
8am - 9.30am
Start the new year with a strong and intentional purpose, truly aligned with yourself. One body, one mind, one breath.
A yoga mala is a moving meditation based on a repetitive, steady rhythm that helps us transcend the physical body and move us closer to our true self. The body is the mala, the breath is the mantra. We will move through 108 sun salutations and close with mantra meditation at the end.
Please note that this event is non-refundable.
ABOUT MEIYAN CHEONG
Meiyan's regular yoga practice started in 2014, when a bout of rare insomnia hit due to stress and no other solutions seemed to work. As a swimmer and aquathlete in her university days, movement meant a stopwatch, clear results, goals, and a great deal of expectations toward herself.
Enter yoga - which is more about letting go than holding on. She 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 is currently in the midst of completing her 300 hour teacher training with a specialised focus in yin, vinyasa, philosophy and mindfulness, and is looking forward to leading her own teacher training someday soon.
As a practitioner and a teacher, Meiyan's two favourite styles are vinyasa and yin - polar opposites. She enjoys sequences woven together like a dance, while still staying true to the breath. She feels yin complements the yang energy that we create, not only in vinyasa classes, but in our hectic daily lives, and deeply enjoys the stillness and discipline required in a yin practice. Regardless of the style of practice, a mantra she holds close in her teaching and personal practice is the simple reminder “you are enough."
Outside of yoga, Meiyan can be found soaking in the water under the sun, or enjoying some introvert time with her cats at home. She co-owns Lighthouse Adventure Co, a Singapore based dive center and travel agency, with a group of good friends.
