1. Your Occupation?
I am a full-time yoga instructor and marketing executive at The Yoga Collective.
2. When did you start doing yoga?
I started around 2.5 years ago, when I was still in university.
3. How has yoga changed your lifestyle/ improved your lifestyle?
It has helped me become a much more grounded person. The teachings in yoga have also constantly reminded me to be compassionate towards myself and others, which has been a strong pillar of support and lesson to remember in times of difficulties.
4. Favourite pose?
Downward facing dog is my favourite pose. It may seem like a really simple pose, but there are many things to be aware of in terms of alignment and breath in a downwards facing dog. It also serves as a constant reminder for me that it is not always about the fancy looking poses in yoga. The simple-looking poses are what forms 90% of the foundations in yoga.
5. What do you look for in a yoga wear?
Style and functionality. Not only does it need to be stretchable and comfortable, looking good on the mat is definitely a huge bonus!
6. Any tips for beginners?
Just get started. Don't compare your practice with other people. Enjoy the process!
7. If you weren't working in the job you are in now, what would you be doing instead?
I guess I would be working in the marketing and public relations field anyway, given that it is my major in university!
8. What is your ideal holiday?
Definitely a relaxing trip to Bali or Maldives, on top of some scuba diving fun!
9. What three values are most important to you?
Honesty, compassion and passion.
10. Living in a sunny climate, what are some of your must-haves when it comes to your skin?
I am quite a simple person when it comes to my skincare, but moisturiser and sleeping masks are must-haves!
11. What is one thing on your bucket list?
To be able to travel the world while teaching yoga would be one thing on my bucket list.
