Joseph was first introduced to Hatha yoga in 2002 in Singapore. He is blessed to have received instruction from many great teachers in various styles, including Yin yoga, Asthanga yoga, Anusara yoga, Kundalini yoga and Bikram yoga.
He is a RYT 200-hour certified yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance (USA). Joseph believes that yoga is a practice that can be adapted to suit any life stage or body shape. Everyone is different in body structure, fitness level, flexibility, concentration ability and breathing capacity. His yoga classes are designed and structured around these primary principles. Everyone can practice yoga at their own pace respecting own limitations, and yet enjoy the multiple benefits that yoga brings. All it takes is personal commitment and self-discipline.
Joseph’s mottos for practicing and teaching yoga are: 1) respect your body for where it is today 2) be present, centered and mindful in your practice, and 3) breathe, smile and enjoy your practice.
Joseph incorporates karma yoga as part of his daily yoga practice, and is very grateful for each opportunity to serve others.
