Being an active person throughout her life, Kleo would take a shot at any sport. Running used to be top of her list until injuries beset her and marathons failed to enthuse her. The turn came for her when she encountered Ashtanga during her university days. Amidst the physical demands of the asanas, it was the breath, mindfulness and meditative movement of yoga that captivated her.
Practice took a backseat when work demands became heavy for years. Life took another turn five years ago when she became a full-time mum. She was able to juggle her time and finally found time to pursue a RYT-200hr Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. Kleo firmly believes in a safe practice where optimal alignment and muscles activation is key. Her keen interest on anatomy led her to broaden her knowledge at workshops by Noah Maze – Anatomy & Intensive Yoga workshop and Joan Hyman. She is currently understudying Iyengar Yoga with a direct disciple of BKS Iyengar.
Kleo believes that yoga should be accessible to anyone and everyone, regardless of age, gender, body type and flexibility. She hopes to share this holistic wellness to everyone. Her motto in life is – with gratitude, comes happiness and peace. Today, she is juggling between being a full-time mum to two active boys and yoga teaching.
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.
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.
The antidote to stress is relaxation. Restorative yoga focuses on relaxation, renewal, effortlessness and ease. This practice soothes your nervous system, helps you quiet your mind and invites you to release deeply held tension.
Core Work is a specialised 1 hour class dedicated to creating awareness into our core. During the class, students will learn techniques and poses that will enable them to engage and strengthen the core muscles.
