In search of balance with Yin Yoga

Dane Lim (left) and Jensen Ong (right) founded The Be.Live Practice to introduce a more sustainable approach to health and fitness in Singapore. A space dedicated to Yin Yoga in Singapore, the practice is beneficial to experienced yoga practitioners, those who exercise regularly, yoga beginners or people who may be recovering from a medical or physical condition. Yin Yoga allows everyone to practise at his or her own pace, even in a class setting. The poses are deceptively simple but when held for a period of time, can offer a good stretch and work our deeper body tissues. Yin Yoga offers a balance to other forms of yoga and exercise and for beginners, a great way to start a yoga journey.
