Terence’s yoga journey began in 2014 as a respite from work. Since then, he has been convinced of the therapeutic effects of yoga: a wondrous sense of healing and centeredness for the mind and body. He realises the beauty in yoga is beyond the practice of physical asanas. Commiting to a consistent practice has allowed him to look inward, to accept things as they are and to conquer anxieties, fears and the ego both on and off the mat. The yang-style of Vinyasa/Flow/Power type classes has been the biggest component in his practice and teaching.
At this juncture, Terence feels the need to synergize the Yin and Yang and therefore he has also incorporated more Yin-influenced elements and mindfulness into his personal practice lately. He aspires to guide students in their yoga journeys to move safely, mindfully, fearlessly and learn more about themselves while also taking moments to pause, reflect and find the many simple joys in their lives outside of classes.
