Helen Briggs - Yoga teacher, Therapist

Helen has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 35 years now, thoroughly enjoying exploring the physical and more subtle aspects of yoga and experiencing many different “styles” of yoga. Initially, her practice helped her through many stressful times in her life. It allowed her to find balance between her home life and a busy sales and marketing career, which eventually led her to open her first yoga and therapy centre in 2004. Helen now has almost 20 years experience of teaching yoga and meditation. She seeks to provide students with a safe, supportive environment in which to improve strength, flexibility and stability, releasing deeply held tensions and rejuvenating their whole being.

She also completed Judith Lasater’s “Relax & Renew” Restorative Yoga teacher training course in 2009. She continues her studies on an ongoing basis with world renowned teachers of various yoga traditions.

Isabel-Coimbra Yoga Teacher

Isabel Coimbra - Yoga Teacher

My yoga journey began many years ago in South Africa when I was introduced to the practice of yoga by a close friend. I quickly became passionate about yoga and how it made me feel – lighter, stronger and more balanced in body and mind. In Singapore, I met Master Kamal, a yoga master who encouraged me to teach. With this extra motivation, I jumped right into finding a school and completing my first formal teacher training. I was fortunate enough to immediately be offered the opportunity to teach at the studios I had so far only practiced in – True Yoga, the largest yoga studios group in Singapore. Teaching opened a whole new range of learnings to me – about what is at the core of yoga, individuality, humility – and I enjoy it as much as I enjoy my own practice. In addition to studio-based teaching, I coach and teach corporate and private clients. As with many yogis, my personal journey has led me to develop an understanding of what yoga is to me – intimacy with self and harmony with everything else. I teach various forms of yoga such as Yin Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Hatha beginners through advanced, Hatha & Core, Vinyasa beginners through advanced, Yoga Therapy, Yoga Flow, Yoga Stretch.

My qualifications include:
ISHTA (Integral Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda), 500 hours Yoga Alliance
Classical Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga, Yoga Alliance 200 hrs
Chuck Miller (Scholar of Pathabi Jois) – Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training,  Yoga Alliance 100 hrs
Paul Grilley – Yin Yoga Teacher Training  – Anatomy and Theory 30hrs
Jo Phee – Yin Yoga Teacher Trianing, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Anatomy 200hrs
Mathew Sweeney – Vinyasa Yoga
I’ve also studied with renowned teachers such as Simon Borg Olivier (Yoga Synergy), Master Kamal (Balance and Core), Kino MacGregor (Ashtanga), Annie Carpenter (Yoga Flow), Dr. Venky Reddy (Pranayama and Anatomy).

[Corporate  and studio classes in Singapore]

I am privileged to do what I love, and continue to learn as a teacher and a practitioner from other Teachers, Masters, and also my students.
