About the teachers:

Laura Zaccaria

Laura is a vinyasa & yin yoga teacher since 2017, a gong player since 2019, and completed a prenatal & postpartum yoga certification in 2020. She created the concept of Yoga for a Change for students to practice yoga, while contributing to worthy causes that enhance livelihoods in Singapore & Southeast Asia. You will leave her sessions feeling strong and relaxed.

Cansu Kart

Cansu’s first encounter with yoga was in 2012 in a basketball field while she was a college student in Turkey. She still remembers that feeling of bliss on that day, which she had never felt before, while she was walking under the rain smiling and asking “what has just happened to me?!”. From that moment on, wherever she goes, yoga is part of her life. She has lived in Istanbul, Amsterdam, New York City and moved to Singapore 3 years ago. She decided to deepen her knowledge of yoga and wanted to share this feeling with the world and got her YTT in 2019. Her classes are easy to follow, grounding and give you a sense of ease and bliss.

Yun Ng

Yun has been supporting Yoga for a Change since 2021. As a full-time teacher with HOM Yoga, all kinds of movement practices inspire her. Her teachings are mostly alignment-focused and heart-based, with a touch of music. Most recently, her focus and forage into contortion, hand balancing and endurance running have kept her inspired and awake. Yun’s curiosity and hunger for knowledge keeps her on the mat and fuels her desire to learn and evolve every single day.

Ashita Gogia

Ashita’s first real encounter with yoga was in 2017, at a yoga studio in Canada. After her first class, she was amazed by how calm and energized she could feel at the same time. As an Indian, she found it ironic that it took a journey halfway across the world to discover her passion for yoga. Since then, the curiosity has only cultivated further and led Ashita to complete her yoga teacher training certification in Vinyasa Flow in 2021. She now hopes to share the benefits of the practice that has been instrumental in shaping her life on and off the mat.

Jason Chan

Jason's yoga journey has taken him from the occasional yoga class trying to soothe stiff muscles to a devoted yoga practice for the past 5 years. He has undertaken a 250hr YTT and enjoys teaching a vinyasa style yoga class, incorporating elements of movement practice to encourage and practice better movement awareness and integrity.
