What you'll do

The class will take place in my home studio on West Nanjing Road in the heart of Shanghai.
It will begin with a 10 mins guided meditation with traditional Sanskrit chanting. Followed by a 5 mins yin yoga relaxation. After several rounds of Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutation), we will carry on a series vinyasa krama highlighting different parts of the body. It will help to improve your body and mind awareness by lifting the spirit, boosting the energy, detoxifying the body, and building the strength. We will cool down and close the class with 10 mins guided savasana to help you reach deep relaxation.
After class, we will be having a 20 mins tea chat to reenergize. We can chat about your yoga journey, life journey, and things you want to know about Shanghai and it’s culture. Our life crosses at this point. Let’s connect.

I am a Yoga Alliance-Certified RYT200, also a young professional who is busy with work and life in this non-stop world, just like you. As an active soul loving the beauty between balanced liveliness and stillness, I have found ways to connect the surroundings with my inner self through the flow of prana. I want to share my experience with you.
Before moving to Shanghai, I have been training for martial art for eight years in North America, and practiced yoga for three years. To me, the balance between the two is essential to place myself between the busyness and stillness, the yang and the yin - the key to enjoy life in a city like Shanghai where it is easy to get lost in its powerful energy.
In my class, I will guide you through meditation, chanting, and a gentle flow of asanas to improve awareness of your body and further your mind

It’s gonna be perfect yoga experience to you. My friend and i both haven’t tried yoga. But Penelope customized the class for beginners like us. And we had ever great time in this class. Felt so much better and fresher than i am after the class. Also I started to be interested of yoga. 너무너무너무 좋은 요가 수업이었습니다... 한 번도 요가수업을 들어본 적 없어서 수업 전에 긴장도 많이 됐지만, 안들었으면 후회했을 정도로 여운이 많이 남습니다. 요가 경험이 없더라도 심신안정을 얻고 싶으신 분들에게 추천합니다.

Penelope offered a challenging, restful, astoundingly high quality one-on-one yoga class. Her adjustments and feel for the body were extremely knowledgeable, and it felt as though she genuinely did it out of a generous impulse to teach and share yoga with others.

This yoga session really is for everyone! We were total beginners and Penélope took the time to explain everything step by step without rushing through anything. Even though some figures were too hard for us, she would always provide help when needed and made sure that we didn’t hurt ourselves. The two hours went by super fast and at the end we were exhausted but felt great. Also, Penélope was wonderful as a host and mentor and on top of the yoga session gave us a lot of useful insider tipps for Shanghai. She really created an unforgettable and precious memory for us, we would do it again anytime!
