1 to 1 Classes in Beckenham, Bromley and South East London


There are different reasons for people to come to private yoga sessions. As a beginner, you may have a degree of self-consciousness in a group, you may want to deepen your practice or you may want a practice-time that suits you. Whatever the reasons, we will work together to create the class tailored to your needs.

Small Group Classes in Beckenham, Bromley and South East London


You daily schedule simply doesn't fit in with any Yoga class timetables. This class is good for friends, neighbours and colleagues. Just arrange the time and place. You can have fun together and get more attention than in a big class.

Corporate Classes in Central London


More and more employers understand the benefits of yoga for their employees. It has been shown that yoga reduces their stress and increases their concentration. Please contact me for corporate classes.

How I teach


I have been practicing yoga for many years in various styles. When I first started I thought that yoga was just about perfecting a pose. That was until I met an Anusara yoga teacher Bridget who inspired me to practice yoga in a different way - now I feel space and freedom in my body. I love yoga. It is the moment I spend time with myself and connect with my inner body. It is also the way I express myself through the body.

After my teacher training, I realized yoga is not only about the perfect yoga poses. It is also about placing our physical body into alignment, to connect with our heart, observing our inner body, mind and energy and experiencing stillness and freedom of the body. As a result, you will find inner peace and essence of the self.

Combining all the knowledge of the practice of yoga, I teach from my heart following the 5 Universal Principles. I create a theme which inspires me in life. Themes have the potential to take you to the very heart of the yoga practice, allowing us to reflect inside and see ourselves more fully. These can touch our heart, even long after we leave our mats. You will be practising yoga with awareness. Then, you will gradually build up your strength and consciousness. This is one of the ways to 'knowing' your body, mind and spirit.

I currently teach small groups in the Beckenham, Bromley and Orpington areas and can also provide one-to-one sessions.

Full Moon Weekend Yoga Retreat

West Lexham Manor, Norfolk 9th-11th of June 2017


Join Antonia and Hsin in this Full Moon Yoga Retreat, where you will be able to deepen your practice, through both dynamic and restorative asana practices, enjoy healthy vegetarian meals and spend time in the beautiful grounds of West Lexham Manor, Norfolk. By taking time to nurture the body, the mind and the spirit you will leave with a clear mind and a true, heartfelt commitment to your deepest desires.

The time of the Full Moon brings a culmination of energy and an acknowledgement and integration of our feelings. The state of our body, mind and spirit is amplified during this time, so it is important to be in a peaceful and calm state in order to use this abundance of energy in an effective and constructive way. During the Full Moon we have an opportunity to recognise our heart’s longing and to act towards our deepest intentions. Throughout the weekend we will playfully explore the physical and subtle body through asana, mantra and meditation in order to truthfully listen to the wisdom within and clear away anything that might prevent you from acting towards the direction of your heart’s desire.

Counselling

Who needs counselling?


There are still many people who have misunderstandings about counselling; thinking only people experiencing diagnosable problems seek counselling. the fear of stigmatisation deters individuals from acknowledging their problems and seeking help thus creating unnecessary suffering. if you feel that you are struggling alone with some difficult issues such as change, separation, relationship problems, loss, depression, stress, anxiety or even just simply want to know yourself. then counselling may be of great help. if you want to get heard and understand your deepest concerns, or if you want to feel about yourself and recognise your feelings, then counselling can help.

How I work


I provide a safe, confidential, warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment for you to explore the issues in your life or anything else you would like to talk about. By listening and empathising, I will help you to see things more clearly and help your to look at the different options. I work in a variety of ways to help you to develop your self awareness, to be valued as you are, find your inner strengths and I will guide you to find where you can begin to see your own way; I will lead you to become what you want to be. I draw from different styles to suit your individual needs. These include Person Centered, Gestalt, Psychodrama therapy, Transactional Analysis and Relaxation and Mindfulness techniques. In this journey, the therapeutic relationship is built on mutual trust developed over a period of time. Sometimes you will feel happy, sometimes you will feel pain, fear, anger and sadness. You are encouraged to talk freely to share your feelings, thoughts, behaviour patterns and dreams with me. You are also encouraged to reflect on what is on your mind. I will go through this process with you with all my support. Our first session is to see if we are able to work together, if yes, then we will arrange further appointments.

Reki

What is Rieki?


Reiki opens the self to new levels of awareness and is a powerful transformational tool for personal growth. Reiki seeks to help each individual find balance and harmony in the body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is really an exceptional tool that enables you to get a sense of our true essence.

Reiki-life force energy is an amazing and powerful energy system with spiritual practices that can be learnt by anyone and be used in a range of ways. It is the way to supply the lack of human energy from universal energy and accelerates self-healing. It is hands-on healing to support all levels of our being, including body, mind and spirit.

During the Reiki healing session, you lie on a couch fully clothed, I will place my hands on or near you depending on you and let energy flow from my hands to you. I also provide distance Reiki healing and courses in Reiki levels 1, 2 and Master.

Everyone has a different reaction from Reiki, some people may feel very relaxed even fall asleep. Some may feel heat or tingling, some may see colours and feel somehow emotional. Some aches and pains may come to the surface. This is all perfectly normal.

About Me

I graduated with an MA in Humanistic Approach Counseling from Nottingham University. My dissertation involved interviewing a shamanic healer. Since then I have tuned concepts learnt from Shamanism into my Counselling work.

I was drawn to learn Reiki first and then became a Reiki master. I have passionately continued my journey to develop my awareness and grow spiritually.

My first degree is in social work. Before I came to England, I was a student counselor at a high school for 2 years and used to lead youth summer camps and 921 earthquake trauma workshops in Taiwan.

I have also worked in London for three years at the Chinese Mental Health Association where I was a freelance counselor, working with people who have gambling problems, depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, relationship issues, obsessive behaviour, bipolar, cross culture issues and life issues in general. I am now also a yoga teacher.

I tune my ability as a practitioner across many interrelated disciplines. This has enabled me to experience profound personal growth and given me the passions of my life.

Testimonials

Jason - September 2016

I've been practicing yoga for 4 years now and have had many teachers but your class is one of the best I have experienced, you are a great teacher.


E.K. - April 2016

I meant to let you know that I really enjoyed Wednesday evening's class – my work is very hectic at the moment (and will be so for a while yet) and I find the class really helps me switch off from the day.


Sophie - May 2016 (Backbend Workshop)

I like the fact that we go back to basics, and being shown so many different ways of getting into backbends, and my back felt lovely when I left. Great workshop.


Alice - April 2016

In the past, I have tried acupuncture and group meditation to bring positive energy into my mind and body. However, it was only when I met Hsin-Yi and she channeled energy into my body that I really managed to feel at peace and completely relaxed. Hsin-Yi has an exceptional empathy, that enables her to be in tune with a person's being. Hsin listened to me, and recommended ways to improve my life beyond Reiki and to strengthen the relationship between my mind and body. I am very thankful for her guidance and help. I won't hesitate to recommend her to those who want to discover the incredible healing power of Reiki, but also who are currently feeling at loss and need help to find their way back.


Katrin - August 2015

As a result of Hsin's instruction, my practise has improved and developed as I have grown stronger and her attitude of listening and being kind to your own body has extended into my daily life. I love going to her classes and I'll continue to for as long as I can!


Yasmin - December 2014

I had the best sleep last night . It was so deep, right until my alarm went off this morning. I usually get up at least twice in the night, most definitely the effects of your nurturing yoga class.


Elizabeth - August 2014

I've been practicing yoga on and off for the last ten years. It was only when I started taking Hsin's class six months ago that I began craving a commitment to yoga and seeing it as much more than a way to exercise and gain flexibility. I have found a much deeper connection to myself through her class. Hsin's classes also challenge you to engage and push your body to get the most out of each pose.

Recently, I booked a private lesson with Hsin as a birthday treat. I appreciated how much she was able to tailor the lesson to my preferences, and really work with me on proper alignment and engagement, which are skills I will be able to use in my home practice. I will definitely be booking more one to one lessons in the future and would recommend both these and her classes to beginners as well as the more advanced.


Jane - March 2014

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Yoga again today - the time just flew with those longer poses - very meditative. I loved it thank you.


Juno - Taiwan, November 2013

I am living in Taiwan. I normally do not sleep well during the night after a fall where I broke my ribs. I was waiting for a shoulder operation at that time. I came to Hsin because of my daughter. I do not know about Reiki, I was in a lot of pain and finding it difficult to move around so I decided to just give it a go. Unexpectedly, after the distance healing, I have had my best sleeping night ever. Furthermore, Hsin can sense exactly which parts of the ribs that I broke and even my old injury to my ankles. She can even sense my deep emotions. I have done Reiki a few times now with Hsin. She senses my personality through healing without me telling her, my pain was reduced and my ribs reovered quickly. I was very impressed with Hsin's Reiki distance healing.


Caroline - Oct 2013

Hsin is wonderfully insightful yoga teacher and I feel that each time I leave her classes my mind is clearer, my body more energised and my spirit more at peace with the world. Her yoga practice is equally challenging, supportive and nurturing for those just beginning or for someone more advanced.


Titta - May 2013

'In various moments of my life I have had Counselling and always thought it worked,only to realised after time that my issues were still there and my problems were unchanged or even bigger. When I started Counselling with Hsin I coulnd't believe how deep and painfull were my issues still but it seemed very easy to trust her with my emotional blockages and talk about it with Hsin. Session after sessions I realised that my awareness of myself was greater and I felt my body and my soul lighter and ligher every time.... I felt for the first time my issues were recognised and addressed and it was a comforting feeling. Hsin guided me every step of the way with her compassionate yet straight guidance. She made me face my emotions and liberated me from my low self esteem that has plagued my life for so long.I have never felt better that now. For the first time in my life I feel amazing after 30 years of self inflicted negative thinking and I am a different,happier human being. I feel lucky and blessed to have met Hsin as I feel without her my life wouldn't be so fantastic today.'


Kate - October 2011

'Just a quick note to say how much I enjoy your wonderful Yoga classes... I honestly mean it when I say they are the best I have ever experienced... I wake up on Monday mornings looking forward to them.. Believe me Hsin when I say u really do have a gift.'


Marie - October 2011

'Thank you so much for tonight Hsin. It was amazing and it really felt great to be in peace and take time "out" and forget everything to focus on our body and soul. You feel like family and I feel very lucky to have met positive people like you. You are really talented, and you do give a lot. There's no price for what you give us! Thanks again for your wisdom.'


Francesca - November 2011

I have met Hsin through counselling and my experience has been fantastic. Since my first session I felt that she had a deep and caring understanding of my issues and she was able to clarify a lot of emotional situations that I was experiencing in my life. Her guide has been precious not only for me but also for the people around me, my family and my friends because I was able to feel more confident and certainly more happy.

I also experienced Yoga with Hsin and again it was a one-of a kind experience for me. I have done Yoga before, but never felt better, more energised and elated after a session with her. She brings her light in anything she does.


Michael - Counselling client

I really appreciated the time Hsin had spent with me during the worst time in my life when I suffered from depression. Hsin became my counselor and I had a session with her every week for over two months. I felt a clear mind and much more relaxed after each session. She understood what I thought, felt what I felt, guided me through issues and helped me to find a way out of the complexity. It was an invaluable gift to have such an experiences with her.
