Zelin used to be a Senior Strategic Planning Manager in an advertising company. The pressure of fast-paced, intense work led to both physical and mental discomfort. As a result, she found yoga in 2018 and it became a way to maintain work-life balance. After the daily inhale-and-exhale practice, Zelin gradually took control of her time and body and felt the soft but powerful benefits of yoga. And so began her yogic life. Teachers Niki and Vicky were two of the most important people who changed her attitude about yoga – practising each basic pose instead of chasing after the advanced poses. Studying with Andrey Lappa equipped her with a comprehensive understanding of yoga, learning scientific and efficient practice methods as well as incorporating this wisdom into life. In Zelin's classes, students will discover the skills of basic poses and prepare for advanced ones. Zelin’s perceptiveness to the reactions and feelings of everyone during practice enables her to provide individualised auxiliary adjustment and suggestions. Within each class, expect to lay a solid foundation, establish proper breathing patterns, find inner peace, and love yourself.

Immunity Booster Yoga
Our immune system is affected by our lifestyle: what we eat, the quality of our sleep, and our physical and mental state. This class helps us to relax the body and mind so that our body can naturally boost its immunity. Specific poses will be practised to help stimulate the thymus gland, aid in detoxification of the body, and calm the mind. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included. Suitable for anyone looking to restore their body and mind with gentle physical effort.
Heart Opening Flow
This Specialised Class is all about heart-opening poses. This style of poses can be challenging for a lot of us, but with the correct preparation and approach, the results can be rewarding and motivating. Backbends are not just about flexibility, they are also about having strength in our back, core and legs so we can protect our spine and dive deeper into these postures with a sense of confidence and safety. During this flow, we will use different postures to explore the fundamental aspects needed to practice backbends safely and efficiently. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included.
