What do you like about yoga?
It makes me a nicer person. It keeps you balanced and you learn to love yourself more than ever before. I guess it’s about being more in tune with your body and being more discerning.
If you weren’t running your own yoga studio, what would you be doing?
I guess I might be working in advertising. I majored in communications in school, it was the only path! (laughs)
Favourite place in the world:
My bed, lah, actually (laughs). But my favourite place to visit is New York. I love that whole feeling of being a small fish in a big pond, and the sense of endless opportunity. It feels so alive. I last went to New York two years ago, in December.
What’s one thing you wish you had more time to do, or that you think you should be doing more of?
Being present and in the moment. A lot of people are always looking at their phone and laptops, and they’re not really present. I’m definitely like that sometimes.
How do you switch off/tune out then?
I bring my dogs swimming once a week, so I try not to reply to any work stuff during that time. I actually watch them swim, and play with them. It’s only when they go and shower that then I go check my phone. It’s only for about half an hour but that’s when I have time for my self.
Do you ever find it tiring?
There are days where it’s very challenging, but at the end of the day it’s worth it. I ask myself why I do what I do, and I just enjoy seeing people consistently showing up on the mat. They inspire me to always bring my best.
If you could do anything you wanted to do, what would it be?
I’m already doing it!
