This beautiful class provides a space and support for self-healing. It uses a blend of gentle yoga asanas including Yin, restorative, TCM and more. Along with the asanas, participants are assisted into deep states of relaxation and inner journey with guided meditation at the beginning and end of the class. It is a time for gentle, deep self work. The experience is heightened with live music designed to support the process.
Who is this class for?
Anyone can enjoy this class from novice to very experienced yogis.
Point of difference
This class provides a yoga-sound-light-sensory escape. It offers a unique blend of asanas, breathwork, guided meditation and music. It also includes discussion after the class to allow for deep integration and connection.
Note: Musicians/artists may vary for each session. Last time Mark & Frances collaborated with Pablo Ji (Planetary Soul), a multi instrumental and sound journey artist. The next class saw a collaboration with Elaine Yang; reiki master and crystal singing bowl healer. Like the rest of the class, the musical component is ever changing to support set intention.
About Mark Chern & Frances Ren
Mark is a TCM Physician. He works in both Soma Clinic and COMO Shambhala as part of a network of health practitioners supporting clients in a multidisciplinary manner. His areas of work include women’s health, fertility, pregnancy as well as conditions related to the autoimmune system e.g. thyroid, adrenal insufficiency and pain. He has an interest in working with psychosomatic conditions. He is also a Chinese herbalist and organizes herb recognition trips to the largest herb market in the world. Also familiar with other culture’s herbs, such as Ayurvedic and Western herbalism, he keeps up to date on new developments that may benefit his clients. Mark has learnt from many teachers at Como Shambhala and was inspired to create a yoga-light-sound-sensory escape series. He feels strongly that yoga can be experienced in a more blended, integrated and collaborative way and hopes that this fusion continues to develop over time.
Frances is a food wellness nutritionist for women and postpartum mothers, an acupuncturist and a yoga teacher. She completed her 8-year studies at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, working in various public hospitals before becoming a licensed doctor and acupuncturist in China. After her studies she started her own practice in Buenos Aires and successfully treated infertility, recurrent miscarriages, depression, general pain and aches, and digestive issues. Frances blends her learnings to treat and educate her clients with custom holistic care plans. Her goal is to provide wellness solutions to women in the home that can be adapted for self-care and ongoing lifestyle integration.
Frances has been continuously inspired by her own journey to motherhood and the lack of holistic care offered to mothers at such a life-changing time. Her passion for holistic awareness led her to become a yoga practitioner inspired by her mentors: Mimi Kuo Deemer, Robyn Wexler, Max Strom, and Donna Farhi. She is a certified Kripalu and Vinyasa teacher, and has been teaching for 10 years. She has taught in Yoga Yard Beijing, Buena Onda Yoga Buenos Aires, and Como Shambhala Singapore.
Frances is now developing her brand and vision with collaborators but identifies first and foremost as a healer. She values the connections she makes with her clients and enjoys seeing them flourish with her support.
Mark was drawn to Frances’ multidimensional teaching style which led them to commence co-creation at Como Shambhala.
