Yan Ong is an authorised level 2 Ashtanga Yoga teacher & owner of Mysore Room, the only Ashtanga Yoga shala in Malaysia since 2015. She moved to Mysore, India in 2010 living there for several years devoting her studies with Paramaguru Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Institute & returns annually to deepen her learning the past decade. For 8 years she dedicatedly studied ancient philosophy scripture, having completed 8 Upanishads and counting.
With 8 years of full time experience across the globe in 15 countries conducting classes, philosophy lectures, workshops, retreats & festival events, her teaching, writing & talks are inspired by her unique & exciting life experience, bringing a fun approach to ancient yoga teachings for today’s life & to spark curiosity into ourselves. While the world dives deep to gain knowledge, she prefers we take a moment and come up for air to experience life.
I am from Malaysia and have been practising the primary series on my own. Thanks for sharing of your inspirational experiences.
