Jessie Yap

Jessie is a certified yoga teacher holding a diploma in Hatha Yoga (Yoga Alliance registered course) since 2011.

 

Jessie has discovered yoga since 2004. However, her yoga practice only become more frequent after withdrawing from dancing sport due to several injuries. Her love and passion for yoga leads her to join her first teachers’ training course in Nepal in 2010.

 

Jessie’s teaching emphasizes correct alignments. She always believe that one must have good alignments to be a graceful dancer, and so the same for yoga. She guides her students patiently and over time the postures can be performed with ease. She believes, by practicing, one can learn and increase awareness of their own body and mind.

 

In addition, Jessie is a certified pre-natal yoga teacher and have been teaching in this field for few years. Demand for her class has always been high with many new to-be mothers. She loves seeing all her students benefit from doing yoga and become more confident and well-prepared for their labor.

Jessie loves reading books and attending workshop or yoga related courses in order to improve her knowledge in her teaching as well as her own practice.

In 2013, she has completed Yin Yoga teacher training with Ty and Sarah Powers (Insight Yoga) at Koh Samui.

She is now working towards completing her 100 hours yoga therapy and ayurveda certificate.

As a teacher, Jessie is engaged in a continuous learning journey to improve her skills. Yoga has changed her positively in many ways and she wants to share this discipline with others. Her greatest hope and joy is for her students to gain something from her teaching.
