1. Amber rain signal was hoisted a few hours before class and weather was very bad. Limited space on pier available due to water and groups seeking shelter in the pier. Students who attended have great energy and focus to their practice in difficult conditions. Hatha style class focused on full body strength and mobility.
2. Student numbers were down - probably due to poor weather. Hatha style class and students gave great energy and enjoyed the class.
3. It was awesome. The students and teachers came to class even under amber rainstorm. It’s very impressive.

10. Yoga for seniors could sound very challenging but its countless health benefits in alleviating pain conditions and mental stress made it an extremely valuable opportunity for seniors to reach their full potential. The session was very well-structured and was tailor made for seniors of all ages. With a lot of hands-on adjustments based on different participants’ body needs, the class was interactive, energetic and full of laughter! Highly accessible to students of all levels, the class was definitely a refreshing and encouraging one!
11. Very humid conditions so focused on yin style practice and pranayama for cooling. Excellent class - students applied themselves very well with lots of joy and smiles throughout!
12. Hatha flow class with focus on full body strength and stretch. Very hot and humid - students gave good focus and energy to their practice - lots of smiles too!
13. The one on one session allows spontaneous poses to target stiff shoulders, and weak arms and lower back. It was a very practical and fruitful time for both the teacher and student.
