About the lesson
I conduct several types of yoga classes namely Yin Yang Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Gentle Yoga and Power Yoga to local gyms, yoga studio & corporate offices, I also conduct private classes.
Besides, I do organize Charity Yoga and Yoga Retreat from time to time.
My teaching style is very much influenced and inspired by Anusara yoga style, which emphasizes "Universal Principles of Alignment" as focal point of its practice.
I dedicated a lot of my time in understanding and perfecting alignment in asanas. I believe with these deeper understanding, we will be able to experience the full benefits of the asanas.
Human anatomy is also a key focus in my teaching. The ability to identify the connection between muscle, joints and spine while performing asanas will help individuals to produce optimal muscle performance whilst preventing from injuries.
Apart from that, I'm also a avid believer in Yin Yoga. The slow-paced Yin Yoga calms and allow the asanas to go deeper into the body connective tissues.
I believe it's important to have balance by practicing both Yin and Yang Yoga because it creates a strong and flexible body as well as a calm mind.

I started practicing yoga 15 years ago and I am a certified yoga instructor with the RYT200 certificate issued by Yoga Alliance.
For the past 7 years, I taught/have been teaching in several local gyms (Chi Fitness, MUV FIT), Yoga studios (Inspired Yoga, mYoga, Yoga The One That I Want & etc), Corporate offices (Maybank, KLSE, Bonuslink, KSK Group, APEX & etc) and also private classes.
The maximum number of students that I have in my class was 40, with all ages ranging from 18 to 70 years old.
Many students have reverted to me that their lower back pain, knee pain, and other chronic pain have been reduced after attending my classes. Also, some with depression and anxiety has benefited from my classes.
Perfect! He teaches patiently esp for a new beginner like myself. Highly recommend to all beginners in yoga.

Also, she is taking the initiative to try Yin Yang yoga too. She has the good attitude towards learning yoga.
Perfect! Lionel's instruction is very clear, always give options for different levels, enjoy his classes so far
- Lionel's response : Soh Gee stopped yoga for a few years, now re-started the yoga practice, definitely it will take some time for her to go back to her previous condition, but having some basic does help her to get in to the pose easier.
Perfect! Good observant, patients, clear instruction/guidance & pay more attention to new students

First knew about Lionel was his advertisement appear in facebook when i was looking for online yoga class. He is very responsive to questions and patiently answer every single question posted to him. His teaching method is easy to follow and still able to correct my post even is though is an online class and most importantly he will demonstrate the post beforehand and tell the students which part of the body should feel the stretch which helps a lot to do the yoga poses correctly and avoid injury. My backpain improved and no more acupuncture needed after he taught some yoga poses which helps to relieve back pain. Thank you.
Teacher Lionel is a great, dedicated and professional yoga instructor! He works with all levels. I had never done yoga before and he has helped me progress patiently. He is always on time, pleasant, and brings a very positive energy to the class!
I started Lionel's virtual class during lockdown. What i love about his session is his instructions are loud and very clear to ensure i perform the pose correctly and he is able to correct my posture, especially crucial on a virtual platform. Highly recommend for one looking for a reliable virtual yoga session.
A client of mine introduced Lionel to me for online yoga classes. I was a little skeptical at the beginning as I wasn’t quite sure if I can follow the instructions online. But after attending his classes, I was convinced that his online classes were as effective as physical ones which I have attended previously. Now I look forward to his classes as Lionel is very attentive and gives clear instructions and directions. He always explains in detail on the poses and the benefits of the postures that he teaches. In addition to that, he usually provides various options for us to choose from to suit our capabilities. Lionel is a knowledgeable and patient tutor who definitely can help you achieve greater experience with yoga.
Lionel’s yoga help me to relax and gained so much flexibility & strength. I feel very helpful & enjoyed when taking his class! Highly recommended!
I've been taking class from Lionel for 2 years (from my regular gym slot and eventually his own virtual studio classes) and that is a proven track record of going back to a good instructor regularly. Lionel's classes are well designed and planned, while allowed for flexibility to challenge. I recommend Lionel to Yogis of all age of training.
Lionel is a dedicated teacher who not only has a passion in his job and loves to teach. He made his yoga class easy to understand and to follow. Love his Yin Yang yoga always guarantees a good night's sleep after a class. I would highly recommend him.
Lionel is great! I had the best yoga experience with him. If you have any hesitation about starting yoga, his course is perfect to start. Everyone has their own flexibility. He provides different levels of yoga poses for beginners and ordinary students in the same class. He will introduce new yoga poses in his practice from time to time. In his class, this is a great mix of strength, mobility, deep breathing, relaxation, and sweat. I strongly recommend him to be your yoga tutor~
Lionel is really a professional coach, committed, helpful and charismatic, and he can train according to the level of the trainee, I highly recommend

What age did you start practiving Yoga? Tell us about this time or moment in your life.
I started practicing yoga since 2006, when I didn't have much body flexibility, it was quite embarrassing when I was the only one who couldn't touch my fingertips to the floor back then. However, I didn't give up, with my passion in yoga, and the determination of getting more flexible, I continued my practice since then.
What are your favourite Yogas; those that you practice at a high level, a simple hobby, and a yoga style that you'd still like to discover?
In terms of yoga, I have tried many types of yoga, namely : Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Chair Yoga and etc. I must say my favourite is Yin Yang Yoga, which it combines both active and passive stretching, which allows us to strike a balance between both Yin & Yang.
What gives you the motivation and passion to pursue Yoga?
What motivates me to continue with yoga is that the outer and inner change that it can bring to us, when you get the benefits from the practice, you tend to continue, not just physically but also mentally.
Do you have a teaching achievement that you're particularly proud of?
The achievement that I am proud of is when students told me their lower back pain has reduced after practicing yoga with me, or even they could sleep better now as compared to before practising yoga.
How have your achievements and challenges made you a better Yoga teacher?
Understanding students body issue makes me think of how can I help to reduce their pain or even overcome the obstacle, sometimes they told me some syndromes that I have never heard before, then I would try to understand more about this syndromes by doing some research, and came out with some modification to meet their needs.
If you had to go for a jog with a famous yoga master, who would you choose? And what questions would you ask them?
If I were to meet Dylan Werner in person, I would want to ask him : As a very famous male yoga master, what is your ultimate goal?
How do you help people stay motivated?
I always tell my students to be patient with themselves, changes will not happen overnight, just compare themselves with their 1st day of practising yoga, I am sure they can see the improvement even if it is not too significant, also practising yoga is not just an physical exercise, it also helps me to calm ourselves and brings us inner peace.
What makes you a Superprof in Yoga?
I always believe that everyone is different, and I am quite observant about students' conditions, I don't believe 1 method for everyone, hence I always give options to my students. Even our conditions can be different from days to days, so it is ok if you are not performing as good as yesterday. I guess lecturing the ideas about "everyone is different", "everyday is different", "accepting themselves as who they are", or even help them to "find themselves" throughout the practice, these are all very important.
