Ili Lim

Ili Lim is a certified fitness trainer and yoga teacher. In her past life she was a Flowboarder athlete and has several world titles under her belt. A knee reconstruction surgery in 2012 led her to the discovery of yoga and the self-awareness, mindfulness and calm that it brought to her everyday. She eventually trained as a personal trainer and yoga teacher, and found in both modalities the strength she needed to go through the hustle and bustle of life. Even though she no longer competes, she still considers herself an athlete and sportswoman, being a mother of two active children! She counts her family to be her biggest teacher. Through her classes, she hopes to inspire others to feel comfortable and strong in their bodies through fitness and yoga.

Kimberly Kwa

Kim (she/her) started practicing yoga in 2008 as a means to rehabilitate her body and mind, and in the process found strength, mindfulness and self-compassion.

She has also completed TLY Academy's 100H Prenatal and Postnatal Teacher Training. Kim believes that yoga isn’t about getting into the most complex variation of a pose or conforming the body to a definitive shape. It’s about connecting with the breath; movement (or stillness) with each inhale and exhale; doing what feels good in the moment – listening to the body, mind and soul, and letting it guide the intensity of your practice.

Janice Chia

Janice (she/her) started practising yoga in 2018 to keep herself active. Besides building strength and flexibility, she also gained greater appreciation for her body and breath. Since then, yoga has remained a constant in Janice’s life. Wanting to deepen her knowledge in yoga, she completed a 200H teacher training in Ashtanga Yoga and went on to pursue her interests in Yin Yoga (50H) with Bernie Clark and Pre/Post-Natal Yoga (100H) with TLY Academy. Her classes have a focus on bringing awareness to the body and breath, something we rarely do in our busy day-to-day lives. Janice hopes to provide a safe and encouraging space for clients to discover their own personal yoga journey and inspire them through the practice.
