In 2007, Diana started teaching yoga to individuals and small groups and in 2011 founded Avante Yoga. Several types of yoga – Restorative, Gentle, Stretch, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Yogalates, Weight loss & Detox Yoga etc are conducted for individuals and groups.

Diana started her yoga journey in 2002 and soon discovered the enhancing benefits of yoga  to her physical and mental well being. Yoga helped her digestive problem,  accelerated the recovery process of a torn leg ligament and greatly improved her energy level. This greatly spurred both her passion for yoga and the desire to share.

Diana attained her Instructor Certificate from Indian Yoga Institute of Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (VYASA), Bangalore India in 2005. That same year, she represented Singapore in the National & International Himalaya Yoga Olympiad held at SVYASA Bangalore. Diana came in first place in the above 24 years old group.

Ms. Trudy Tan

Yoga Instructor

Yoga has been a part of Trudy’s workout routine for several years now. It was when she fell in love with Vinyasa Style Yoga where Trudy found the beautiful connection between breath and movement. This is when the real Yoga journey began for her.

Since that day in 2017, Yoga has become a regular part of her life. In 2018 she obtained her 200 hours Yoga Teaching Training Certification (YTTC) from Avante Face Body Yoga Studio.  Trudy started teaching part-time immediately after graduation in the same studio.  After teaching for 2 years, she furthered her education in Yoga by taking on a 300 hours YTTC certificate with Aligned Yoga School.  She successfully graduated this in 2020 as an Aligned Yoga Teacher, as well as attained her RYT-500 with Yoga Alliance.

Trudy believes in practicing yoga with the student’s well-being in mind and teaches the form with the focus on alignment and anatomy.  She has learnt time and again that happiness is found in moments of alignment.

She believes that advanced yoga postures can only be achieved by understanding the pose and building strong foundations. Regardless the class level, she takes care of everyone by offering modification and accessible options.

Trudy’s favorite moments are in helping people find and blend their true values into their practice.

Yoon Sheng

Yoga Instructor

I’m Yoon Sheng (surname Yeap), was born in Malaysia. Yet everyone would call me as YS. I have been here for 10 years to deepen my studies till Master Degree and work in Drug Discovery field for R&D work. I wish to be in Therapeutic Development in long run as my on-going plan. I have started yoga practice since graduated, and have been indulging in the practice for almost 5.5 years.

I have acquired my certification in teaching yoga with a Registered Yoga Teacher Certification (RYT) from a Yoga Alliance (YA) recognized institute backdated 2018, and have been teaching in Real Yoga and Align Studio AMK as well. Specializing in Hatha Yoga, I have possessed knowledge in yoga movements (asana practice) and able to deliver the message to the student in a functional and creative way. To me, Yoga is about integrating mind, body and spirit in union.  Through yoga practice, it is designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance our body. I believe that each pose has its own specific physical benefits, as this low-impact exercise focuses on breath control, abdominal strength, spine, pelvis and shoulder stabilization, muscular flexibility, joint mobility and strengthening exercise in a functional way.

For my own practice wise, I have indulged myself in Astanga/Vinyasa styled and Hatha Yoga styled which includes backbend and twist, active and passive stretches, basics and foundation classes, as well as yoga therapy and gentle yoga. Yoga has given me a sense of belongings, calmness in my mind with focus and concentration. Practice itself has helped to reboot my energy for the rest of the day no matter how good or bad the day is. I would be satisfied for my practice when I able to incorporate deep breathings especially during invert, backbend or vinyasa flow.

Yoga is the discipline of my life. It has trained my mind to become stronger and determined with persistence in the meantime. And now, I hope to be more creative for my asana practice. My love about teaching yoga “Teach with devoted heart”. Therefore, my wish: “When my students leave their class, I hope they feel relaxed, satisfied and happy with their practice. Most importantly, the breathing sounds are much meaningful to me, as they are really working hard with me during the class.”

Alyssa

Yoga Instructor

Alyssa tried her first yoga class back in 2009 but didn’t become a regular practitioner until 2018 when she started attending Diana’s classes at Avante Body and Wellness . Since then, yoga has quickly become a passion for her, and she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at Avante in 2020. What she loves about yoga is not just the physical attributes of strengthening the body but also its power to introduce mindfulness into one’s daily life and to improve mental health.

Alyssa loves teaching dynamic flows focusing on a mixture of strength, balance, and mobility. Having dealt with her own lower back and hamstring injuries in the past, she is extra attentive to alignment and giving her students clear cues and variations to have a safe and injury-free practice where they can progress at their own pace.
