Loo Ying Yan

Ying Yan started yoga out of curiosity when she discovered that the two bodyworkers who inspired her a lot, Yamuna Zake and Ida Rolf, were both yogis. Their revolutionary insights and approach to the human body were probably built on a strong mastery of the self through the practice of yoga. Ying Yan is a certified Yoga teacher with the International Yoga Teacher Association (IYTA) and a certified Yamuna® Body Rolling Instructor. She is on a mission to help people become more aware of the relationship between the way they hold their bodies and the muscular imbalances that ensue. Her classes are designed to bring about balance of the body, mind, and soul.

Ying Yan is also specialised in Yamuna® Foot Fitness which makes her the person to go to with your questions about your foot issues. In her classes she teaches you the importance of the fitness of your feet for a healthy functioning of your total body.

Felicia Lim

Felicia started practicing yoga as a dance student in college and took her 200-hour teacher training in 2018. Being mindful of the way she was doing the asanas helped her be more aware of how she approaches life. She hopes to share this practice with others, of exploring and being inquisitive to the way one moves and approaches movement. As a facilitator, she hopes to hold a space free of judgement for whatever intentions people may come to class for. She is grateful for all teachers whom she has crossed paths with, for inspiring and guiding her in her personal journey.

Goh Jia Yin

Jia Yin’s passion for movement began at a young age; she trained in artistic gymnastics and stepped into her first Chinese Dance class at the age of 12. A leap of faith after Business school saw her pursue Dance in Singapore, then in New York, where she obtained her Bachelors in Dance and got acquainted with the GYROTONIC® method. She is now based in Singapore and certified in both Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis, as well as trained in Balance Body® Pilates Mat and Reformer. She freelances and teaches Dance, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, and Pilates at various studios and schools. She continues to dance, perform and choreograph for ad hoc projects. Having had her own fair share of injuries from gymnastics and dance, she believes her continued journey of learning, discovery and self-healing will allow her to help clients/students both young and old, and tap into the therapeutic potential of movement. She also finds joy in helping dancers and sportsmen/women maximise their athletic capabilities and prevent injury.
