Han Wee Tan

Having always had a keen interest in philosophy and the esoteric, Han found Yoga through a traditional Yoga Ashram where he trained for 2 years, studying Yoga in all its aspects – as a physical, mental and emotional practice. He then continued to live at that ashram for another two and a half years, developing himself both as a teacher and as a person.

​Yoga has since become an important way of life for him, one that is continually leaning towards ease and efficiency, joy and compassion. He believes that true healing and transformation can only happen when we take the self as an integrated whole and appreciate the relationships between its parts. It is this holistic form of Yoga he looks to share through every one of his classes for the nurturing of body, mind and spirit. Han is Co-Director of Teacher Trainings.

Jodi Howe

Jodi came to yoga first as a purely physical practice, and over years her relationship with yoga changed, progressed and  blossomed into a way of living and a life of constant discovery and “aha” moments that she knows will never cease.
Jodi believes she is always a student and dedicates herself to continually learning refining and expanding her yoga. To be apart of Jodi’s class is to be invited into the home within yourself, her classes explore the layers of physical sensation, cultivate the capacity stay with sensations and emotions that arise whilst remaining a participatory observer to these feelings rather than a involved participant. Focusing on releasing resistance on all levels, moving deeper, letting go of that which binds you, you will be encouraged toward your innate state of being, to experience the basic meaningfulness of moments and the interconnectedness of all.
