Thia found yoga in 2008 on the search for body and mind stress relief. She ventured to India, Nepal and Thailand meeting many great teachers opening her up to several styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Sivananda, power yoga and yin, humbled by the art of each form. She realised that no matter the place, style, or teacher, the life teachings remain the same. She truly believes every moment of every day is the practice of yoga.
