About Shu Ling Tee
Shu Ling Tee first took up Yoga as a form of exercise to relieve the stress from juggling between a full-time work and part-time student schedule. This sparked her to embark on a journey to learn and understand what Yoga is about and its benefits through proper body alignment. In 2017, she left my corporate job and enrolled for Yoga Teacher Training.
Through her one year of teaching experience, it came to her realisation that modern Yoga is more posture based. As such, she finds it of utmost importance to assimilate the benefits and origins of Yoga poses when she teaches. With that, she sincerely hope that whoever that attends her class comes to the understanding that Yoga is more than just a physical workout; it is a lifestyle.
A common misunderstanding/misconception which she has observed is that many students have the fear of injuring themselves. This fear led them to believe that it is impossible for them to practise certain poses that look challenging without attempting. She would very much love to help lower or remove that mental barrier, and share with them a safe way of entering and exiting the poses. Most importantly, she would like to let them know that there is no such thing as a perfect pose as everyone is unique, and each day’s practice reflects the state of our mind and condition of our body. She hopes that everyone is able to gain more body awareness while having fun. She also stands by the belief that Yoga is a lifelong learning practice and feels that the classes she teach also teaches her something everytime.
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.
