Katherine, the founder of SUKHA Yoga & Wellness, was influenced by her mother, who was also a yoga teacher. She took her first yoga class in 2001. Years of practice and teaching have granted her a broader perspective in offering effective and personalised training to her students. She taught at different yoga centers, clubhouses, corporates, and privates; and has students of all age range. Katherine has acquired in-depth knowledge in providing all levels and categories of training, including stretching, strength building, and better awareness.
While asanas may be the reason why yoga has been drawn to many people, Katherine insisted on including a session of meditation practice in her yoga class. In the hope of letting her students acknowledge and experience the significance of mental awareness and to maintain the inseparable link between meditation and asana practice.

Started practicing yoga in 2014 to rehabilitate a back injury and to balance her hectic corporate work life, Melody has experienced not only a physical transformation but also a gain in mental strength and overall wellness.
The yearning for more knowledge led to her first 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2015, followed by further training on Yin Yoga, Mindful Birth, AntiGravity Fitness, Mindfulness meditation, and singing bowl sound therapy.
Believing yoga is for everyone, Melody aspires to share an accessible practice with an open mind that respect differences and with compassion to understand limitations, while at the same time making students feel encouraged to bring out their best.
Through the practice of yoga, she hopes to influence more people to discover their inner strength and achieve a union of body, mind and soul.
Starting a regular basis of yoga practice since 2018, Yonex has always enjoyed the bliss and joy yoga brings into her life. It also inspires her to spread the positivity and its influence on people who may be interested in knowing more about yoga practice.
As a dedicated and passionate practitioner of yoga, yoga means so much more than a sport to Yonex. It is also a practice to condition her mind, and a training that she adheres to for strengthening her physical health and mental health. She started yoga with the sole intention to improve her flexibility and strength, little did she know how a consistent yoga practice actually benefits her whole- person development. To Yonex, yoga will never be restricted by anything- not your age, not the years of practice, and certainly not the capability of your body. It is her hope to manifest the positive energy to all her students on the mats.
Yonex strongly believes that the physical postures are closely connected to the spiritual mind of a person, and the effects are always mutual. It is also her intention in assisting other’s yoga practice- to help them connect the mind and body through assistance of the physical movements, and to achieve a better wellness as a whole.
Hayley first started stepped onto the yoga mat in 2017 after university. She has never been a flexible and strong person and came to yoga simply for the sake of finding inner peace during the practice. However, throughout her yoga journey, she has known more about her own body by listening to it in every single practice. Yoga not only helps her in gaining physical strength but also self-awareness, patience, and persistence.
Wanting to deepen her practice and knowledge of yoga, she joined the yoga teacher training with Katherine Lee. Katherine has inspired her with the real meaning of yoga and the ways to share her practice with other yoga practitioners. Hayley’s teaching focuses on physical and mental strength and assists students to unify their bodies, mind, and soul.
Ridley has been committed to her yoga and aerial practice since 2018. Through yoga, she is able to find focus amidst distractions and the calm within the chaos. She is also an enthusiast in aerial art which she believes is one of the most uplifting and empowering forms of art.
Ridley likes to think that to serve and to heal as her life purpose, and her favourite quote is 'we are just walking each other home'.
Meko began her yoga journey in 2019. With more than 10 years contemporary dance experience, she wanted to try something different. At the beginning, she only attended yoga classes for fun. Soon, she gained her flexibility and strength little by little through continuous practices. Practicing yoga not only benefits her physically, it is also an outlet from her stressful work. In order to deepen her knowledge of yoga, she decided to challenge herself and participate in the RYT 200 training.
Besides practicing yoga, Meko is also an aerial lover. Among all the apparatus: aerial hammock, hoop and silk that she’s been doing, she loves hammock the most and she completed a 30-Hour Aerial Hammock Teacher Training in 2020.
Meko’s classes are fun and dynamic. She hopes to guide her students in cultivating an awareness of their own bodies that would serve them both physically and mentally.
Vinchi first discovered yoga for relaxation from her hectic PR work life. Soon, she realised yoga had so much more to offer besides stretching, which motivated her to commit to routine that connected her body and mind.
Having established a committed practice in 2018, she then deepened her knowledge by completing RYT200 in 2021. She is grateful to be embarking on a journey of teaching yoga and developing a more positive mindset as a yoga instructor.
She believes that if one can master their mind, they can conquer their body, and thus other challenges in life. During each practice, she will lead students to go deeper, and also aim to build awareness beyond the mat. With a blend of mindful breathing, expect her classes with lofi beats in a dynamic, feel-good flow.
