About Hwee Hwee
Wanting to know yoga beyond the physical aspects (Asanas), she went to one of the oldest yoga school in world, G.S. College of Yoga and Cultural Synthesis, Kaivalydham in Lonavla, Pune, India in 2017 and attained her Hatha Yoga teaching certifications from both Kaivalydham and Quality Council of India (QCI) by Indian Yoga Association.
Turning point of her life:
Through a long depressive phase at work and a bad relationship in 2013, Hwee searched for a spiritual meaning in her existence, a deeper meaning in life and an identity on this Earth. She often wondered why did she come into existence? Is there more to life than this shell that we live in? The search led her to the practice of breath meditation, Rebirthing Breathwork, Vipassana meditation, Kundalini Yoga and many more. She was happier with those practices, however something was still missing.
She left her corporate job in search of “herself” and landed herself in a Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava temple. Through living as Bhakti Yogi’s Brahmacharini (nun) in the temple’s ashram, she finally found “herself”, the true meaning and identity in life. She is now a practising Vaiṣṇavi.
As an advocate of self awareness, she believes that the whole point of practising yoga is to increase self awareness. And hence, the practice between asana (physical exercise) and meditation has integrated into one. It is said that we don't do meditation, meditation happens to us.
Hwee is also proficient in Chinese and Japanese language. Join Hwee for Reiki healing, asanas and pranayama practice for meditation to happen!
