Combining ancient wisdom with modern science is something that has always interested Alana and she is compelled to spread and share true wisdom when she hears it. Through her yoga teachings she has done just this, after returning from India where she first gained knowledge to teach Yoga, she journeyed to Byron Bay when pregnant with her daughter to become a fully certified Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT).
Since then Alana has continued on her journey loving working with women during this special time in their lives – she has found an impactful way to further help expectant couples have a positive empowered birth experience by teaching the ‘Positive Birth Program’ by Hypnobirthing Australia. An amazing workshop which is inclusive of birth partners and teaches a powerful toolkit of techniques to sustain a calm mindset during pregnancy, labour and beyond. We tend to never regret decisions we make when we are informed and prepared.
Alana is also certified in Kids Yoga and irest Yoga Nidra meditation techniques.
Han Wee Tan
Han has been teaching Yoga and Mindfulness in Cairns with a single, sincere wish to share the benefits of practice with others. His approach to the practice is light-hearted and Han is known for his capacity to deliver complex concepts in an accessible manner. For him, the practices are a way of thinking and living rather than just a band-aid for life. This is what Han’s clients have to say about Han:
“…Han is an amazing teacher who has the ability to explain complex ideas in a way that can be understood by anyone. He has insightful stories for every concept and makes the class informative and yet also fun… I honestly believe that since I have been attending Han’s classes my personal relationships have improved and I have a sense of peace that was not present previously.” Kath
“The compassion and wisdom that Han uses to guide you through each specific stage of the building blocks in developing your practice and his sage-like wisdom when he imparts the teachings with references to specific authors and Mentors in the area of Mindfulness is transcendent. Han’s intellect and ability to bring joy, compassion, peace and harmony all whilst leaving you with a relevant light-hearted analogy for each specific Mindfulness Meditation will stay with you forever and give you the tools to support your Mindfulness Meditation Practice. I will be forever grateful that I was blessed with the opportunity to be guided by Han’s deep understanding, compassion, love and knowledge when teaching his Mindfulness Course. Thank you Han for sharing your passion and teaching me the skills to use my Mindfulness Meditation when dealing with my chronic illness.” Kate
