Pam’s yoga journey started in 2006 when she had lower back issues and was informed by her doctor that it was a symptom of ‘soft-bone degeneration’. It was a wakeup call then to do something before it was too late! Thus, the journey began, as it dawned on her that one should treat one’s own body as a temple.
For six years, she practiced yoga enthusiastically and regularly while working in the corporate world. Having gained the tremendous benefits physically, emotionally and spiritually, she realised it is a path worth taking. The thirst to gain deeper knowledge of the roots of Yoga brought her to a Teacher Training Course in 2012. Since then, teaching became a natural progression as she wishes to share benefits of her experience, techniques and knowledge gained. She has been teaching since 2012 and her goal is to reach out to people from all walks of life.
She is a RYT200 Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher with Certification in Hatha Yoga from Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (sVyasa), Bangalore, India. She has also completed the Yoga Therapy Instructor’s Course under the tutelage of Master Manoj Thakur at Vyasa Yoga & Ayurveda Singapore.
Pam endeavours to empower her students with self-awareness through the practice of Asanas (postures), Pranayama (breath), Kriyas (cleansing) and Meditation, thus enlightening the class rather than just going through the motion or workout.
This style links traditional Hatha postures into a sequence of movements that flow naturally from one to the next. This class will explore variations of sun salutations, standing and seated poses along with body balancing and inversions.
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.
