Cheryl Tan is an imperfect human with an infectious laugh. She has dedicated her life to uncover the dark and light within herself, constantly expanding her inner awareness to observe the intricate stories that surface with each layer. Infused with this work of conscious movement, meditation, writing and art, she has realised pathways for healing and self-transformation to occur. She has come from the advertising world where she was driven by educating the masses on brand stories, and has switched her focus to use raw human stories to inspire courage and love in the people around her. Cheryl’s passion in social justice and mental illness awareness drive her to be of service to the Earth and her people. She is eternally grateful for her teachers who have taught her beautifully tough life lessons and to bring her practice off the mat and into the world – Scott Petrie, Seane Corn, Mary Taylor, Richard Freeman, her parents, and high school teachers. She is the founder of The Breathe Movement, and Festival Director for the Singapore Mental Health Film Festival 2019.
This class contains a series of postures that flow naturally from one to the next. Focus is placed on movement, alignment, flexibility, strength and integration with breath. Poses are held for shorter duration than in a Hatha Yoga or Hatha Flow class.
Yin yoga comes from the Taoist tradition and focuses on passive, seated postures that target the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held for anywhere between one and five minutes.
Hatha Yoga typically includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises). This is a relatively slow and gentle style that is suitable for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed class.
