Yoga Instructor


Gwen like many others, love being outdoors, long distance run and a avid mountain trekker and thought yoga was too slow for her liking. However this mindset changed when she started working in a physiotherapy clinic and understood the importance of building muscle memory for efficient daily functional movement. She then suffered a sports injury and painfully took her away from her favourite sports.

She was being introduced to yoga once again. She began to connect better with the concept of how yoga is able to strengthen muscle memory and improve daily functional movements.

Retired from the corporate world after working for close to 2 decades, she decided to embark on her yoga journey. She accomplished her 1st 200 hours yoga teacher training and it was a journey of no return. Through her training, she got the chance to immerse deeper into the wisdom of yoga and started teaching and sharing what she have experienced through her learning. Afterall, the more teaching and sharing she did, the more she learns.

She has also return back to her long distance running, mountain trekker, and got a better experience applying what she have learn from yoga into these favourite activities. She strongly believes ‘Apply therapy according to lifestyle’, which is what she is working to achieve with all her participants.

Min Yi

As a kid growing up, Minyi found that exercise was not part of her lifestyle and struggled with body weight issues. Nonetheless, she took up Muay Thai,Brazilian jiu-jitsu and powerlifting later as an adult. There was never a day without some form of workout since. The hectic yet mostly sedentary office lifestyle brought her all kinds of health issues. After several years of struggle and contemplation, She decided enough was enough. Inevitably she found her new love in yoga and went on to undergo a tough training in becoming a certified yoga instructor.

Minyi finds great joy seeing people grow from strength to strength and when her clients let her know how much they have benefitted from her guidance and training.

Yoga Instructor


Before approaching yoga, Yoga to Melody was merely an exercise that needs flexibility. Ten years ago, invited by her friend, she decided to try out hatha yoga at the community centre near to her house. Surprisingly, she realised that yoga is more than just physical capabilities, but also includes various types of pranayama (breathing) and meditation.

Few years ago, it was a tough time for her. To ease her grief, she tried out simple pranayama and meditation and realised its benefits. She enjoys the moment on the mat whether practicing yoga at home or in the studio, by synchronizing breathing with movements, this helps her dwell in the present moment. Of course, yoga instil her to embrace imperfection when comes to challenging postures, it needs patience and more practices.

To deepen knowledge about yoga, she decided to take 200hr yoga teacher training in 2015 so that she can share more knowledge with people. She also do karma yoga by involving in charity activities.

What yoga teaches her: It isn’t about flexibility and looking cool, it’s about being yourself on your own mat, connecting your breathing, letting go of ego, focusing on your practice and getting closer to experience inner self. Indeed, always with beginner’s mind, practising yoga is an on-going journey for her.

Yoga Instructor


Jasmine’s first yoga class happened in 2010 when she was facing immense stress and unsuccessful coping strategies in a demanding job position as a perioperative nurse. The consistent practice in yoga allowed her to cope better with fragmentary working hours and varying sleeping patterns. Yoga has made her stronger and flexible both on and off the mat. In the last 6 years, she was further inspired to deepen her practice and would like people around her to benefit from the beauty of yoga.

With the simple intention of #moreyogaformorepeople, Jasmine motivates people in getting connected to their inner self and explore their mental and physical capabilities through consistent yoga practice. She also looks forward to helping students cope with their daily lifestyle at work or at home through pranayama, meditation and asanas practice. Beginning with limited flexibility and stamina, Jasmine understands the helplessness and frustrations students have when they first started yoga.

Hence, she constantly reminds what Confucious once said “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”.

Jasmine conducts yoga for all ages and all types of people. She founded and conducts Pay What You Wish Yoga Singapore with a team on a regular basis.
