What it's about

A celebration of being just who you are 

In 1975, United Nations celebrated International Women’s Day for the first time and the date was 8th of March. This was almost after six decades after the United States celebrated national women’s day for the first time in 1909. Fast forward to today, while women have embraced the need for equality and basic human rights, there still exists some reticence towards discussing topics important to a woman’s health — menstruation/menopause, mental wellness, salary, social inequality, and so on. 

We are honoured to host a nurturing yoga practice honouring the sacred cycles of a woman’s body. San will be sharing her own experiences on her menstrual cycles and her current perimenopause stage, the stigma associated with them, the symptoms and how to manage these transitional periods gracefully.

She will then lead a gentle yoga practice and sound bath, and guide you toward calmness to relax your mind and body, and soothe tensions related to your hormonal cycles. 

Join San to embrace the joy (and frustration) of womanhood. Let’s celebrate being just who you are. Suitable for everyone.

About The Teacher

San Lai

As a highly experienced yoga teacher who has moved through different styles of yoga and adventures in her life, San feels that her Dharma is to spread the wisdom of Yoga. Supporting female wellness through yoga is right on her path today as she goes through changes in her own body because of menopause. In her own practice, she has slowly moved away from asana practice to focus on pranayama, meditation and sound therapy. 

Although hot yoga was the first yoga teacher training San took in 2006, her relationship with yoga went back to year 2000. Then, she was volunteering at a safe house in Canada for sexually assaulted women and came across the practice of Pranayama and Meditation for self-healing. She was extremely fascinated by how breathing and sitting in silence can work as a major healing therapy.

San’s teachings focus on connecting one’s mind, body and breath. In her classes, expect to experience Yoga from a fun perspective with a lovely personal touch.

When she is off the mat, San is a devoted mother who spends most of her time playing, laughing and studying with her 2 younger kids. Her spare time is also spent with her older daughter, who is also a yoga teacher.
