Stanley discovered yoga while recuperating from severe leg injuries sustained in a traffic accident in 1999. He is the first son in Singapore who was authorized by K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute to teach the ashtanga system in 2005. Stanley's immense passion and interest for yoga drove him to study Traditional Chinese Medicine, Eastern philosophy, Yin yoga, Kundalini yoga and sound healing from renowned teachers and healers.
Being a trained counsellor, Stanley advocates for mental wellness. He incorporates sound therapy, mindfulness meditation, and breathwork into his practice. After 20 years of teaching, he's established a system fusing sound therapy into all his yoga classes. To him, sound therapy awakens one’s consciousness to propel each individual to greater intelligence, enhanced inner peace, and sanctity as a being; the ability to open one’s heart to care, love to oneself and others.
