Shimin first learnt about yoga like most people: – through attending all kinds of yoga classes at gyms, from Hatha to Hot flow to Power yoga. She found each class excruciatingly difficult – yet always emerged from each class feeling mentally and physically rejuvenated and strong. Thus, she wanted to learn more about yoga as a whole, and decided to take up the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course (TTC) with OhmSantih Yoga, under Teacher War War.
Formerly an academic teacher in a secondary school, she has a life-long passion for education, and her dream in life is to be able to teach and help others and learn from them too. She has always believed that teaching and learning is always a 2-way process and that was why, she has been on a quest of a teacher whom she is able to relate to and be comfortable with.
She knew that she has limited experience and knowledge on yoga and as well as anatomy and physiology, therefore she dedicated 200% of her time and effort to conquer the 200-hour TTC. She emerged from the TTC, not only excelling in the theory portion of the course but also repeatedly prove that she is well able to apply these classroom learning in a class environment.
Through her TTC training in asanas, pranayama, yoga philosophy and the close interaction with her teacher, yoga began to change her outlook on life, and now she aspire to make the same impact on each of her students. She has since grown mentally and spiritually and she looks forward to bring her life experiences and knowledge to her classes – to benefit each of her students physically, mentally and spiritually!
