To ‘rest’, to ‘relax’ and to ‘restore’ is a natural vital process in our lives. Rest supports optimal physiological functioning, and promotes healing and growth.

Adelene Cheong (SYT / E-RYT200 / BWY / iRest Level II)
Having studied various styles of yoga, Adelene’s practice in the recent decade has been greatly inspired by her teachers Judith H. Lasater and Donna Farhi. She has trained extensively with both Judith and Donna, and continues to study and assist them annually.
Adelene integrates her experiences in her teachings, and is particularly interested in the therapeutic application of yoga. Her teaching focuses on anatomy, organic support and healthy alignment, with an emphasis on breath and spinal integration within the body, promoting a harmonious relationship with gravity. She is absolutely committed to a balance of both active asana and restorative practices.
Restorative yoga has been and still is a big part of her practice to restore and reset balance at every level. Adelene believes that rest is not a luxury, it is a physiological need. When the body is hungry, we feed our body with food. When the body (and mind) feels depleted or stressed, it is a vital need to feed the body with rest… to relax and restore.
