Based on the timeless and proven principles of Mindfulness & Yoga practices, Mindful Studio offers you a tailored journey to explore your own mind and body, at your own pace.
If you are looking to enhance your lifestyle with a sense of balance, wellness, and poise, especially amidst modern day's stresses and strains, Mindful Studio is for you.

Caring corporations may also contact Mindful Studio to arrange practice sessions for their employees to enhance staff well being and overall productivity.
Open the door to your heart for inner strength and healing
Focus on the present moment. Among its benefits, meditation practice helps improve many aspects of your life. Improved focus, clarity, and equanimity are some of the most observable results. Those who have tried meditation, even for just a fraction of an hour a day, become more relaxed and less distracted by their fleeting thoughts, demonstrating an enhanced ability to tackle everyday issues, be it at home or at work.
2. Classical Hatha Yoga
Postures and movements to reset and rejuvenate
The flourishing of various forms of yoga practice in recent years has turned this once sacred philosophy into an acrobatic pursuit. At Mindful Studio, yoga is still firmly based on the original and classical belief that mind & body (hence mental and physical health) are intertwined, and should be conditioned together. Yoga classes at Mindful Studio is rightfully classical without all the bells and whistles, to guide students through breathing and physical movement so as to regain control of body and mind.
3. Philosophical Discourses
Ancient wisdom paving a path to purity
The short and medium term benefits of a consistent yoga & meditation practice will definitely be enjoyed by those who have invested their effort. Practitioners may also explore the deeper philosophical dimensions of timeless spiritual wisdom through the learning of the dharma, so as to live a life infused with love and compassion for themselves and for others. At Mindful Studio, philosophical teachings are based on the Buddha's discourse on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
A Little More About Me
Discover Your Inner Peace
Please call me Simon. Though a native of Hong Kong, I grew up in western Africa side by side with the great savannah.
During my formative years I studied in the United States, and soon landed in the management ranks of large conglomerates. Just when life seemed to be smooth sailing, I made a decision to drop the suit and tie, and pursued a path of truth seeking to find meaning in this precious gift of life.
Since 2005, I have been engaged in a spectrum of spiritual practices including classical hatha yoga training in India, Buddhist academic studies in Hong Kong, and went as far as ordaining as a monk in Myanmar to wholeheartedly learn the art of meditation.
I am eager to share this blend of first hand spiritual knowledge and experience with you, and I hope you are also eager to happily journey with me into the realm of self discovery.
In my classes which are very much tailored to the individuality of each student, a deep sense of calm and peace permeates into each breath and posture. I believe each student is already perfect; my classes serve to remind students of their own true nature which are inevitably wholesome and compassionate, and each class is an opportunity for new doors to open, for new flowers to blossom from within.
