Having grown up in Malaysia and also having a love of languages and different cultures, I speak Malay, Japanese, Cantonese and Mandarin (some better than others).
I was first introduced (or rather forced) to attend yoga classes in my teens by my mum. I remember how much I struggled with strength and balance at the start. It took me awhile before I finally began to feel comfortable in my own body.
Little by little, the practice began to change me both physically and mentally – it was liberating and empowering noticing the positive changes. There’s still so much more that I have to learn from the challenges of the practice.
I hope that together we can have those light bulb moments and little break through celebrations that you can take away with you and translate to more advanced postures. It doesn’t matter where you are currently at in your practice. Yoga is about the journey and not the destination. Little by little, we learn to trust and surrender to the process.
The Building Blocks 6-week course is transformational! If you are a beginner, or want to really cement the proper technique for the foundation of all yoga poses then I would highly recommend this course!
Kelly is an amazing teacher, she always brings the most calm, nurturing and non-judgmental energy into the studio! I honestly could not recommend the Building Blocks course, or Little Mandarin enough!!
I highly recommend 6-week foundation yoga course. Before I started the beginner's course, I went to normal yoga classes there straight away without knowing anything. I felt doing yoga was like doing basic Pilates. But after I went through the course with Kelly, learning things such as different breathing techniques, how to do correct postures by using strength of different body parts and so on, it really helps me to understand the working principles behind. I now can actually make an effort by applying those techniques.This is truly an excellent course for learners just into Yoga.
Love the studio and the people here. I'm taking the foundation yoga course which teaches you the poses and how to do them properly. I'm learning so much and Kelly, who teaches the class, is just so knowledgeable, kind and welcoming ! Highly recommended 🤗
I started off with an introductory offer for 2 weeks and it changed my entire perspective of yoga. I used to think yoga was just about flexibility until I found later that it requires a lot of body awareness and strength. I then signed up for the 6 weeks beginner course because I wanted to learn more about the foundation of each pose and how to do them properly rather than just following through what I see in class. I find it so helpful because I can put them into practice and have a safe progressing journey with actual benefits and not injuring myself because of doing the pose wrong. Instructors are absolutely engaging and they're the main reason I'm looking forward to coming back to the studio. Kelly, especially is a sweetheart. Her cues are very clear and she would always demonstrate in class. She would also walk around during class to allign your body, which I find really important for muscle memory and knowing which muscle to activate for a pose. She's definitely one of the reasons why i am drawn to Little Mandarin studio.
Love the team at Little Mandarin. Knowledge, patient, passionate, and personal. Currently doing the yoga foundation course with Kelly, and have learnt so much dissecting posses to do them properly, as well as having a whole lot of fun! The course comes with very useful notes/slides and feedback which I found very useful to reinforce learnings. Would recommend =)
I cannot recommend the 6-week yoga basics course strongly enough. I learned the fundamentals of yoga through our instructor, Kelly, who is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and an all around nice person. I was greeted like an old friend when I arrived, the studio is beautiful and spotless, and it was always set up and ready to go. There was time to ask questions and when we practiced the moves, Kelly was there to make sure we were approaching every move correctly. I was challenged in this course to try moves I just didn't think I could do...but I could!
Best use of my money and time I've made in a long time. I am considering doing the course again to keep learning. Thanks again Kelly and my fellow students!!
Currently taking the foundational yoga course and I am learning so much from my instructor Kelly! It’s always such a great atmosphere coming into class and the information we learn on every pose is so helpful in my own practice outside of the class! Really great class if you’re brand new to yoga or have been going to classes for a while! 10/10
Just had an amazing 6 weeks course with Kelly at Little Mandarin . The class is accommodating of all levels of yogis ( especially the beginners), injuries and capabilities (which I haven't had before). This will help you to understand the basic principle of yoga. Moreover, Kelly keeps you focussed on right techniques of the poses and your breathing . I felt super comfortable and supported and left feeling absolutely amazing - mentally clear and physically energised. I cannot recommend the course and the studio enough. Absolutely brilliant.
I recently completed the building blocks 6 weeks course instructed by Kelly. The class was well taught with great follow up notes. Kelly was a great instructor, her approachable nature and help on movement corrections combined with a comfortable atmosphere made my time more enjoyable and fun. Vinyasa yoga is going to be one of my exercise routine. A special thank goes to Kelly for making the lesson fun and challenging
