About the Teachers


Murielle first came across Yin Yoga in London first attending a class of Sarah Powers in 2006, then took a longer training with Victor Chng in 2009 and later studied with Paul and Suzee Grilley (Initiators of Yin Yoga) in Singapore, Kho Samui and California deepening her understanding and practice in this form of yoga, she still develops and expands her knowledge on the spiritual path with her natural and discerning intuition.

She is naturally drawn to a meditative and contemplative approach, after studying Vajrayana“The Diamond Way” for over five years in London, Murielle feel innately connected to the Buddha’s teaching rather than any particular school, adopting the practice of Yin Yoga to implement her aspiration and research on the spiritual path. Her approach is gentle and compassionate focusing on the breath, letting go and letting be, which encompasses so well the essence of the Yin-Yoga practice.

For the past three decades, Sebastian has practiced Martial Art, Shiatsu, Yoga and Meditation, refining and stabilizing his research to the study of Yin-Yoga as a foundation, to sustain and promote a holistic life-style. Combining western anatomy and meridians theory approach, the practice of Yin Yoga comes to be a potent healing, and psycho-spiritual system.

Discovering Yin Yoga in London with Sarah Powers in 2006 at Triyoga Studio, Sebastian was inspired to integrate a more contemplative/meditative mind in his Yoga Practice. Sebastian has been assisting Paul & Suzee Grilley (Initiators of Yin-Yoga) in their training and continue to study under their prominent expertise and fun-loving teaching.

His teaching is enhanced by eight years of experience as a body therapist (qualified Shiatsu practitioner) and martial art instructor, (nidan in Taido, Japanese Martial art).

Another major influence is until now the study of Buddhism. His main enthusiasm since 2002 is the practice of Vipassana (Goenka Style) and Samatha Meditation (Ayya Khema – Pak Auk Sayadaw Method) or concentration meditation. (Leigh Brasington – Tina Rasmussen & Stephen Snyder) as well as exploring Samatha from a Tibetan Buddhist approach, with practices such as Settling the Mind in his natural state or Awareness of Awareness (Alan Wallace).
