Tim still remembers his first Chaturanga: his body was trembling all over. This experience stimulated his curiosity to explore why Yoga has such power. A few years later in 2013, he began to share his exploration with his students. Two local teachers – Robyn Wexler and Ren JinSong —had great influence along Tim’s yoga journey. They made him realise that there are no fixed answers to yoga poses—yoga is about respecting each individuality, embracing every practice and different flows and styles. From Dice Lida-Klein and Jennie Cohen, Tim later learned that yoga could also be colourful and varied. Besides the traditional approaches, personal experiences and creations can also be fused into yoga practice, making yoga freer, more sophisticated and modern. All this learning makes Tim a unique yoga teacher. Tim has been called a “tender blade” because his class usually starts with plenty of stretching and body opening, followed by multi-faceted flow sequences accompanied by modern music and essential oils to stimulate different senses, bringing his class to the peak of practice. Tim’s belief is that outer training can enrich one’s inner world and that with endless practice, yoga can ultimately be cultivated in the heart.
