Completed

This project is currently on hold.

Andiappan Yoga Community partners with Mother’s Choice to teach yoga to unwed, expectant mothers.

“At the end of my advanced yoga teacher training course, Master Yogananth explained how the Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC) provides opportunities to give back to society while also enhancing our teaching skills. So I signed up to teach yoga at Mother’s Choice and have been teaching there ever since. Being part of AYC gives me the opportunity to spread the benefits of yoga, especially to those without the means or access to a yoga studio. Thank you AYC!” – Andiappan Yoga Community Volunteer Teacher Bo Thong

Tanny Tang

Tanny started her yoga journey in 2005. After practicing for 8 years, Tanny has decided to deepen her knowledge by joining a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Anahata Yoga that started in December 2013. After finishing the 200-hour course, Tanny started to teach in the Andiappan Yoga Community’s Free Yoga Classes for Overseas Workers (Domestic Helpers) together with a group of teachers, and has continued to do so until this day. Every week, Tanny teaches yoga asana and pranayama to over 100 overseas workers.

In early September 2015, Tanny traveled to India to undergo a 100-hour Intensive Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Certificate Course with her teacher Yogananth Andiappan. This was an Intermediate to Advanced course held at the Asana College of Yoga & Research Centre in Tamil Nadu, Chennai.

Due to the constant desire to help more people and learn more about yoga, Tanny pursued further studies by joining the 300-hour Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training from September to December 2015 offered by Anahata Yoga in Hong Kong.

Tanny is keen on investing more hours in teaching and sharing yoga and its benefits with more people.
