Ms. Trudy Tan
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.

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.
