HEAL YOURSELF WITH SHEELA CHEONG
PERSONALISE YOUR PRACTICE
At its heart, the Iyengar method emphasises a practice to fit the individual. Depending on one's condition, postures are given to correct imbalances, strengthen weaknesses and bring relief from specific issues & ailments in the body.
We do not practise the same sequence of postures every day. This helps prevent injury and overuse. The approach is therapeutic.

In my online classes, time is equally divided between demonstration of postures and observation of my students.
Is pain something you've accepted as a normal part of your life? It was for me. In early 2017, I could not get out of bed without wincing at the searing pain in my lower back, hips and legs. I knew things were bad when my toes began to go numb.
At the hospital, I was x-rayed and diagnosed with "degenerative disc disease". I tried everything: chiropractor, massage, TCM, acupuncture, Ayurveda, homeopathy. Nothing helped.
I decided that I would have to figure out how to heal myself as I couldn't imagine having to take painkillers to sleep and waking up to this every morning.
It took me less than half a year to be pain-free. Since then, I have successfully guided students through their own healing journeys.
I would love to do the same for you.
I found yoga in 2008 at the University of California where I was doing my graduate studies in Sociology. After returning to Asia, I earned my teacher's certification and have been teaching yoga ever since. My favourite quote is from Nietzsche: 'There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.' It is my hope to awaken this inner wisdom in every one of my students.
“Sheela is an extremely dedicated, highly skilled and patient Yoga instructor, who recognises that each student experiences and perceives Yoga poses in the context of their own physical limits. Her thoughtful and relaxing communication style enhances the practice and supports the student’s individual path to achieving gradual progress. Her classes are exceptionally popular.”
