About the Instructor
Yat Peng started learning yoga in 1996 in London. She came back to Singapore in 1999 and started taking yoga classes with Mr Jason Lim Heng Moh, a renowned yoga teacher and Buddhist practitioner in Singapore. At his encouragement, she took up a course in Singapore that allows her to teach yoga in Singapore - the International Certificate in Yoga Instructor by the Institute of Vedic Studies, Yoga Education & Research, India (2004).

Her main passion is Tibetan Heart Yoga, as it combines both inner and outer methods to reach the goal of yoga. So far, she has completed the Tibetan Heart Yoga Series 1 to 6 Teachers' Training Workshop
in Tucson, Arizona (2004-2007), directly taught by Geshe Michael and Lama Christie and organised by the Yoga Studies Institute.

She further received training called the
Asana Yoga Teachers' Training Series,
from an amazing dakini, Ms Mira Shani, a devoted student of Geshe Michael and Lama Chrisite, over three semesters at Diamond Mountain University, Arizona (2005-2006). Recently she organised teachings on Master Patanjali's Yoga Sutra in Singapore and was taught the First Chapter on Meditation or the Samadhi Pada by Venerable Nyingpo. She is now accreditated to teach Tibetan Heart Yoga Series 1 by the Yoga Studies Institute (YSI Teacher Directory).

Sacred Dance Workshop - Completed

Dance in Tibetan Buddhism is considered a very high and powerful practice. The 1st Panchen Lama wrote a whole text on its benefits and even Je Tsongkapa himself is said to have practised sacred dance.

So what is sacred dance ?

Why is it so powerful ?

And can anyone practise it, even someone who believes they have 2 left feet ?

We believe the only thing you do need to be a sacred dancer is the right intention and the willingness to open your heart and mind. So, just bring those along and come for an afternoon of movement, discussion and perhaps even transformation :)

Jaki has been studying and teaching dance at Diamond Mountain University, as her 'major', and is very excited to lead this workshop.

When : Saturday 11 August
Where: JayGee Building (TBC)
Time: 2 - 5pm

This workshop is free.
Please email us to register by 1 August.

ACI COURSE 10: A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, Part I - Completed

Ven Chukyi has just finished an overview of this crucial text and we will now go through the formal ACI courses for this subject in depth.

These courses were created by Geshe Michael Roach based on what he learned in his 20 year Geshe degree at a Tibetan monastery.

AND - If you are at all interested in pursuing the higher teachings in our lineage, you need to complete these fundamental courses (with homeworks/quizzes/finals also completed).

Part 1 is the first in the three course series based Master Shantideva's work, which is considered the best book ever written to learn how to live as a bodhisattva.

Topics include: the benefits of being a bodhisattva, the preliminaries you must undertake to become a bodhisattva, how to remove existing obstacles and how to collect the causes for Bodhicitta, a description of the six perfections, the order in which to undertake practice of the six perfections, how to treat your mental afflictions, and an explanation of the perfection of giving and the perfection of an ethical way of life.

Yat Peng & Jaki will lead this course. Auditing the course is permitted.
