Koh Hwee Hwee is a yoga & meditation teacher, reiki healer and bhakti yogi. Koh attended Kaivalydham in Lonavla, Pune, India, one of the oldest yoga schools in the world, in 2017. Through her personal experience of managing injuries and pain, Koh is mindful in giving modifications for all body types during asana practice. Koh searched for a deeper meaning and an identity in life while experiencing depression in 2013, which led her to the practice of meditation. She eventually found Bhakti Yoga, a mindful way of lifestyle. As an advocate of mindfulness, she believes that the objective of practising yoga is to increase self-awareness. And hence, the practice between asana (physical exercise) and meditation is integrated as one. It is said that we don't do meditation, meditation happens to us.
