yurong ytt testimonial picture

Thank you laoshi @yogawithstan for the infectious energy, great insights, epic anecdotes of Guruji Pattabhi Jois and belly laughs over the past few weekends. It really made me live ashtanga even more!! Hope to see you around (: Also, much thanks to @jamesng.333 and @peculiaryogi for the opportunity to learn from the first authorised Ashtanga teacher in Singapore!

Honoured for the opportunity to learn and practice with Stanley Lim, authorised as the first son in Singapore to teach Ashtanga Yoga. I love ashtanga for the inner focus, strength & discipline it brings. A moving meditation. 7+ years of practice & counting! 🙏 Thanks @yogawithstan, @jamesng.333 & @peculiaryogi! YTT is shaping up to be a wonderful journey 😍

“Why won’t you do YTT?” “My hamstrings are too tight. I don’t feel ready.” “You will never feel ready. Just go for it.” This conversation kept replaying in my mind. Because my teacher @jamesng.333 believed I can, I believed I can. When @peculiaryogi launched their YTT course this year, I was worried I’d miss it because of a possible job relocation, but changes in timeline once again aligned to making this a possibility. I knew I had to. YTT to me was about deepening my understanding and studies of a beautiful practice that’s helped me become a better, stronger, braver person. But as I progressed through the course, I learned my love for sharing this practice, the knowledge my teachers have shared with more people going forward.

Such an amazing journey with a group of great people to kick start my yoga journey. I never regret to sign up the 200hrs YTT with @peculiaryogi and @jamesng.333, yoga is not just asana but many more for me to explore. I am so happy that I can also learn the asthanga from @yogawithstan which is an authorised as First Son in Singapore by the Ashtanga Yoga lineage from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This is just a beginning for my yoga life and many more to go🧘🏻‍♀️ Namaste🙏🏻

The tough period has gone through finally. Work has to go on, still have to attend classes, tiring but awesome! Mummy… I did it 🥳 Thanks to my classmates for the encouragement and support during this period🙏 Honestly, I didn’t always enjoy the homework, quizzes or tests. But I really enjoy the theory class with you😘 My mentor, my guru @jamesng.333 who always told me “Don’t Over Think”. Thank you for your guidance along the way.

Thank you to all who have been part of this journey, especially my batch mates, previous batch’s teachers and James. I can’t imagine going through this without the support of all of you and I’m deeply grateful. The past 10 weeks passed by so fast and while we’ve touched on so many aspects of yoga, I felt that there’s still so much more to learn. 🕉🪵🪣 One quote particularly stuck with me throughout the course – “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” I guess this is why even the most experienced yogis are still striving to improve every day despite decades of practice. This is just the beginning of a lifelong journey… ⛰🏁

ziwei ytt testimonial picture

10 weeks flew by in a blink of an eye. Not too sure how to summarize everything in words. Kind of got used to the weekend routine of practising, learning together, making silly jokes and witnessing each other’s progress. Thankful to my batchmates for the wonderful memories and all teachers at @peculiaryogi for your generosity in sharing your knowledge. Thanks @melchee_92 @gracewangxl for the constant encouragement (and waiting for me for 4 hours to complete my sutra neti 👃🏽🥲). Thanks @jamesng.333 for being patient and never giving up on me. 🙃

My ten weeks with @peculiaryogi flew by in the blink of an eye. An memorable and unforgettable journey to me. I am so grateful to have @melchee_92 @zeeway @gracewangxl and @capuvdl as my coursemates to learn, practice and grow together. And of course, thanks to @jamesng.333 for always being patient and kind to us. Most importantly, thanks to all the encouragement and support from PY’s community and friends and family 🤍 謝謝大家 我愛你們 ❤️

yiqian ytt testimonial picture

This has been a truly meaningful experience for me. The 10 weeks of YTT were not easy, there were definitely moments of fatigue and self-doubt, yet I found myself looking forward to every weekend when I saw my progress.
I love how the classes were structured and conducted, especially the theory lessons where we had ample opportunities to ask questions and explore interesting topics around yoga. And as someone who had stopped yoga practice for years, I felt I was in safe hands under James’ guidance during asana practices.
I am thankful to my classmates, Wenxin and Bella, whom through our shared encouragement and laughter tided me through all those weeks.
I am also grateful to my teacher, James, for his patience, his constant reminders of my small wins along the way, and most of all, his valuable teachings about yoga and life.
And not forgetting the warmth and support from the rest of the Peculiar Yogi community too.

My heart is overflowing with gratitude as I completed my Yoga Teacher Training with @peculiaryogi.
This transformative journey has been nothing short of incredible. I am immensely grateful to my amazing teacher James, my supportive batch mates Aeris, Tracy and Ryan, and the entire PY community for their unwavering encouragement and love throughout this experience. 
Every weekend was a treasure trove of knowledge, laughter, and growth. From diving deep into asanas to absorbing the wisdom of yoga philosophy, the lessons were truly enriching. Our shared moments of silly jokes, camaraderie, and witnessing each other’s progress will forever hold a special place in my heart. 
A heartfelt appreciation goes out to the incredible PY teachers who selflessly shared their wisdom and guidance. You are the guiding light that illuminated my path, and I am forever grateful for your presence. 
This is just the beginning, not the end. My journey as a yoga teacher is a lifelong commitment to spreading love, compassion, and the transformative power of yoga to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

– Min Chuen (@yogi_owl)

Can’t believe that I have not only survived but also successfully completed the YTT @peculiaryogi. The past 10 weeks have flown by in the blink of an eye, and although it has been a challenging journey, it has been undeniably worth every moment. I vividly recall expressing to @jamesng.333 my mix of excitement and fear as I made my way up to the studio each weekend, unsure of what awaited me.

To my exceptional teacher, James, you are my role model for what a yoga teacher should embody. Your willingness to share your valuable knowledge and experiences has been truly inspiring.

To my fellow batch mates, Tracy Ryan, and Kemen, I am immensely grateful for the joy and unforgettable memories we have created together. I still find myself missing our weekend routine, from our practice sessions to our shared breakfasts and lunches. The bond we have formed is truly incredible, and I want you all to know that I will always be there for you whenever you need me.

Lastly, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to the entire PY community for their continuous encouragement and love throughout this life-changing experience. Your support has been instrumental in my growth and development as a yoga teacher, and I am forever grateful for the positive impact you have had on my journey.
