Shree Ann Mathavan

Yoga Instructor

200Hr Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training from Space & Light Studios

"Never forget, life’s bigger than the boxes we check along the way."

As a communications person – a large chunk of Shree’s professional life entails tight deadlines, churning out copy and ‘selling’ ideas, plans or stories to different stakeholders. Having worked on both ends of the communications spectrum – first as a newspaper journalist and currently, as a PR person, long days and non-stop adrenaline are par of the course for this part-time teacher.

Yoga has thankfully managed to be her refuge and source of comfort and strength whenever things got rough. A champion of sweating it out, Shree has practised vinyasa yoga on and off for more than 10 years, and consistently so the past four.

Hungry to further her passion, Shree took up her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training certification at Space & Light Studios in 2014 with Anusara-inspired teachers, Lynn Yeo and Sumei Shum. The uplifting power of yoga, mindful alignment and the extension of the practice beyond the mat into our time-pressed, everyday lives is what Shree constantly works on bringing into her classes.

The calming of the mind – chitta vritti nirodha — through meditative movement and breath is a philosophy that continues to guide and inspire her. In her classes, expect a sense of playfulness, clear alignment, the uplifting power of yoga and the extension of the practice beyond the mat into our time-pressed, everyday lives.
