About

Hello there! Welcome!
 img_3305

I admit, I was one of those who used to say, “Oh, yoga is boring!” However, things changed after I took my first vinyasa yoga class in Yangon in 2014. What started out only as an alternative way to stretch for pole dancing became a love affair. I started picking up a more regular practice in 2016. I love how I always felt a strong sense of peace and joyfulness after each practice. Yoga taught me endurance, and I grew stronger physically and mentally.

After moving back to Singapore in June 2016, I decided to take up a yoga training course. I completed my 200-hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training (Yoga Alliance certified) with OhmSantih Yoga School (Singapore) in August 2016 under the strong guidance of Teacher War War Lwin Tun.

My initial intention in taking up the course was just to better understand yoga in totality, and in a holistic way. However, I was inspired to teach yoga after hearing, seeing and experiencing the benefits of yoga during my course. I want people know that yoga is not just an exercise, or knowing how to do jaw-dropping poses. Yoga is not just about postures (asanas); there is so much more to it. I believe yoga is for everyone, and we can always work around to make yoga accessible to all.

My teaching style focuses on getting the basics and physical alignment right, and also building inner awareness, as I believe they form the foundations for a strong and safe practice. I also love to joke around during classes, and laugh with my students, to create a non-judgemental environment for people to learn from one another. It’s OK if you can’t touch your toes, or do that backbend or headstand, because someday you’ll get there. I also particularly enjoy working with kids as they somehow always manage to teach me something which adults have forgotten about – being mindful and being contented with what you have. My yoga practice is not just restricted to asanas. I enjoy pranayama and meditation a lot as they have helped me to stay grounded and be more mindful in my yoga journey. I hope to inspire more people to incorporate yoga as a part of their lives, and that they find joy and peace when they practise yoga. Come join me for yoga! 🙂

Namaste,
Aileen

Rooftop Yoga Singapore

Rooftop Yoga Singapore at myVillage, Serangoon Gardens

Rev4 - Rooftop Yoga with Aileen Poster Design

Do you want to pick up yoga but are too shy or afraid that you can’t keep up in class? Join me for a sunset yoga session every Wednesday and a sunrise yoga session every Sunday, on the beautiful rooftop amidst the Serangoon Gardens neighbourhood.

Let positive energy fill your Sunday mornings (and the week to come) through a refreshing yoga practice. Enjoy serenity and overcome the feeling of lethargy while most of the neighbourhood remains asleep.

On Wednesday evenings, give yourself a mid-week boost to get you through the remaining week. Recuperate and relax your mind and body after a stress-filled day with a beautiful sunset in the horizon.

Don’t worry if you feel that you are not strong or not flexible enough. You are good enough for yourself, at where you are! 😉 Come with an open mind, and we will work towards gaining strength, flexibility and mind-body awareness through these sessions. Classes are beginner friendly, but seasoned practitioners are welcomed too. Modifications or variations will be provided.

Bring your own mat, water, towel & props (blocks/straps, if needed). RSVP is required, as space is limited.

Private Yoga Classes (1 to 1 / small group – up to 6 pax)

Private classes (1 to 1 or small group) are perfect for people who find it hard to cope in regular studio/big group classes. You will get individualised attention during lessons, and I will be able to cater the lessons to your abilities, interests, fitness goals, or even medical needs (if you have any). You may find that these sessions are more meaningful because you get to learn more about the poses or yoga philosophy, which may not be explained much in big group classes.

Venue will be at your choice of location (e.g. home or function room).

Email for enquires or rates.

Kids Yoga Classes

Kids face increasingly more stress these days as a result from increased competition and pressure to perform well in school (studies, CCA etc). In kids yoga classes, children are encouraged to explore their creativity and be imaginative. Yoga poses will be tied in with games to make the class interesting for the children. The kids will develop better posture, greater awareness of their own bodies, and gain more strength and flexibility. Mindfulness and relaxation activities will also be incorporated in the class and the children will learn how to better manage their emotions and stress.

Kids yoga classes are designed for 3 to 12 years olds. Individual (1 to 1) or private group classes available. Venue will be at your choice of location.

You can also join me for group kids yoga at Ohm Santih Yoga Singapore. I co-teach with Teacher Shimin every Sunday 330pm. Check out their website for the schedule.

Corporate Classes

Many of us work long hours, hunching over our computers or laptops, and more often than not, sitting or standing in poor postures. In addition, we live in this world where there are constant deadlines and demands from customers, resulting in high level of stress. These can affect employees’ physical and mental health, and in turn affect their productivity and effectiveness at work.

Incorporating yoga into workplace is a good way to help improve the health and wellness of your employees. Besides becoming more physically fit, yoga programs at workplace can help to teach employees to reduce and manage their stress level and tension.

Some benefits of workplace yoga programs:

  1. Less stress-related sick occurrences, or work-related injuries from repetitive motion (e.g. carpal tunnel).
  2. Relief of head, neck or back strain as a result of poor sitting postures at work.
  3. Improved concentration and alertness of employees, and as a result, employees are more productive at work.
  4. Improved general well-being of employees. Happier employees!

Types of yoga programs / workshops available:

  1. Regular weekly yoga classes (30-min/45-min quick lunch time yoga or 1-hr classes)
  2. Ad-hoc team-building yoga class
  3. Specific workshops (e.g. Yoga at Office Desk, Yoga for Back Pain, Preventing Wrist Pain & Back Pain at Workplace, Workplace Safety). Workshops are typically 1 to 1.5 hour long, with short presentation, yoga demonstrations & participants from students.

All corporate yoga classes/programs or workshops can be catered to your needs. Rates vary accordingly. Email for enquires or to set up a discussion.
