BRYAN NG/ Anatomy Trainer

Bryan is an Osteopathic physician who currently runs his own private practice, The PainFree Clinic, at the Novena Medical Center. (https://www.thepainfreeclinic.com.sg/)

On top of his vast experience in the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal pain and injuries, he is also a certified yoga instructor after having gone through rigorous yoga teacher trainings with several highly respected yoga and meditation teachers, who strongly inspired him on his yoga journey.

His passion to delve into the study of osteopathic medicine, after completing his first two yoga teacher training programs, was in fact propelled by his desire to cultivate mental steadiness in his students through the integration of healthy body alignment and breath awareness.

With his practical understanding of the human anatomy and movement, combined with his nurturing love for yoga, he hopes to ride on this lifetime interest to help people integrate their body and mind.

Testimonials

How many 200 hour training would have 3 instructors with one specially flying in to teach?! Highly recommended for people of all practice levels. You don’t have to be able to twist yourself into a pretzel to be a yoga teacher. I am looking forward to more excellent workshops in the near future!

Deneuve Shauna Tan

It was a well-rounded programme that provides good knowledge on yoga and the opportunity to learn and practice different types of asana, as well as alignment and adjustment techniques. Definitely a great experience and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to deepen their practice and is interested in understanding more about yoga!

Eunice Chen

With so many YTTs available nowadays, people are really spoilt for choice and I’m glad I chose Yoga Seeds for the great, warm and real people behind it all and my fellow group of YTT-ers! While the 200hrs seemed daunting at first, very soon I was regretting that it couldn’t be longer LOL… Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to deepen and broaden their knowledge of yoga and looking to teach!

Andrea Ng

The 200hr Yoga Teacher Training was the most meaningful experience I could have asked for. Lead Instructor Wendy is a wonderful teacher and is extremely generous with her knowledge. The program curriculum is also very comprehensive and well thought-out, featuring the specialised skillsets of two other very talented teachers as well.

Meiyan Cheong

It is a very informative programme that provides extensive knowledge regarding yoga and it’s philosophies and the opportunity to learn and practice various asanas as well as alignment and adjustment techniques that compliments and enhances one’s yoga practice.

Mike Loke

At the beginning I just wanted to go deeper into my practice and this journey was more than that! I went deeper into myself. I’ve discovered that yoga was more than a passion and that I wanted to share it with people! Today I am a yoga teacher (so proud to say that) and still a student thanks to Yoga Seeds ❤️.

Claudia Crutel

Guided and led by Wendy Chan, the whole team delivered a warm, friendly and engaging environment throughout. Be it course material, various practices, teaching and sharing, the team was dedicated and they kept improving and fine-tuning the programs to bring the best for students.

Yen Ling Teo

Yoga Seeds gave me the confidence to be able to stand in front of many to teach, and I was equipped with knowledge and tools to present myself without being lost. If you’re looking for an intimate setting to learn as much as you can to be a teacher, this is the place.
