Kuan Tan

Kuan went for her first yoga class instead of her regular gym session as she was nursing an injury then.  She didn’t feel much about it.  Interestingly, for some reasons, she found herself returning to the mat more often.  Over time, she began to enjoy the space where it allows her to be grounded and to find peace with her inner self.


In 2013, what intended as a trip to India to better understand traditional yoga soon became a self-discovering journey. Kuan continues to find strength, compassion and bliss on and off her yoga mat.

After two decades in the corporate world, Kuan made the brave, bold, possibly best decision for her body, mind and soul to teach yoga full time in 2017, transitioning from part-time.  She teaches Hatha, Yin, Yoga Therapy, Restorative, Vinyasa, Stretch and Yin-Yang.  Her classes focus on body alignment, breathing, learning to find space from within to feel calm and blissful in the body and mind. 


She enjoys working alongside her students, tailoring to the needs of beginners, veterans, the fit and young, as well as the wise and elderly. From the body-shy novice to the over-eager athlete, Kuan has the patience to teach, train or tame as the occasion calls for it.  Kuan believes that her students are her best teachers.  It brings immense joy when she sees her students beam in big smiles and their eyes lit up after classes. 


One of her motivations to spread the word on the benefits of yoga is the true sense of peace and joy yoga offers her – on and off the mat. She is passionate about helping others find a comfortable and competent way to move their bodies through life, with yoga.
