【2nd Dec 2017 Saturday】

12:30pm - 3pm: Kriyas + Pranayama Workshop

Kriyas helps mental and physical cleansing which is essential in preparing the body for Pranayama and Asana practice. Practising Kriya is indispensable in allowing Prana to operate efficiently within us. We will focus on the major Kriyas, which we can practise daily to maintain clear channels and keep us away from diseases. Pranayama will calm our mind and allow us to be more aware how our breath is energising our body. Practice Pranayama correctly could balance our nervous system.

3:30pm-6pm: Discover the secrets in Standing Poses Workshop

Standing poses do many wonders ... for example... to lengthen our spine & increase circulation along the spine, to increase our range of motion in our hips, to strengthen & lengthen our leg muscles, to open our shoulders & chest, etc; which has been missed or overlooked in our practice. We will rediscover how to practise our standing poses with joy!

12:30pm - 3pm: Free Our Lower Back Workshop

Having a pain-free, healthy lower back is paramount not only to our yoga practise, but also to a healthy lifestyle. Learn how to maintain our natural curves by proper alignment. We will emphasize on relieving stress in the lower back and finding space in the mid to upper back through poses, like backbends - urdhva danurasana.

************30 minutes break************

3:30pm-6pm: Be with Our Breath in Every Move Workshop

Let our breath be a catalyst to lead our body into Asanas. Move with ultimate awareness; listen to the feedback of the body. Experience our internal alignment. Allow the prana to massage our spine and guide us into the poses.

Originally from France, Michel was based in Hong Kong where he was the founder of Yogasana, one of the very first Ashtanga Shala in Hong Kong in 2002, and was also one of the first to in Hong Kong to establish Yoga Teacher Trainings.

Prior to Hong Kong, Michel ran a successful Iyengar school "Noosa Yoga Centre" in Australia from 1987 to 1996 and from 1997 to 2000 he taught Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in Vienna, Austria. In the past two decades, Michel has taught yoga and conducted teacher trainings in different parts of the world including Asia, the United States, Austria, England, France and Australia.

Michel's teaching philosophy is to provide students with clear and sensitive guidance, encouraging them to listen to the needs of the body without pushing or straining, thus making space for their own understanding and growth. Ultimately, Michel encourages everyone to take their practise, but not themselves, seriously. Since 2003, Michel has been conducting Teacher Training 200 hours & 300 hour to students from all walks of life.

As a student, Michel has been immersed in the tradition of yoga over 30 years of study with world-renowned teachers. He began practicing yoga in 1978, and has been teaching since 1983. He started with Iyengar yoga and was a direct student of BKS Iyengar himself, having made regular trips to study under his teacher in Pune, India. He later discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and studied directly under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India on several extended trips to India. After 1993, Asthanga Vinyasa became his primary focus and he now teaches and practices this powerful, ancient system of yoga.

Subsequently in 2002, Michel met Ramesh Balshekar an Advaita Vedanta Teacher from Mumbai and has been avidly his student since. Every year since 2013, Michel has been to Kaivalyadhama Instutite, Lonavla, India to study and practice Pranayama with Sri O P Tiwari.

Along with yoga, Michel has an extensive background in bodywork and postural alignment, and certified Advanced Postural Integrator certified by Psycho-Physical institute of San Francisco.

Truly a teacher's teacher, Michel has trained instructors in 10 different countries and is accredited by IYTA (International Yoga Teacher Association) and Yoga Alliance at the 500-hour level experienced trainer level (highest possible). Michel brings the depth of knowledge and years of experience into class that is so often lacking in modern yoga trainers.


Yoga has been a part of Roslyn's life since 2000, and her practice has helped her grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires Roslyn to live each moment more mindfully. Teaching Yoga Teacher Training & workshops with Michel Besnard around the world for over 10 years has speeded up her growth on the yoga path.

Roslyn completed her 200 hour Vinyasa Flow training at YOGASANA , Hong Kong in 2005 and her 500 hour advanced training at Absolute Yoga, Koh Samui, 2010. She is deeply grateful for the loving wisdom her teachers have shared with her. She is also very interested in yoga philosophy and has been studying with Carlos Pomeda for more than six years. Anatomy is another part which allows Roslyn to understand how to respect everyone's body is unique. She studied with Leslie Kaminoff for a year online. Currently, she is studying Pranayama with Sri O P Tiwari.

In Roslyn's classes, she loves to combine creative sequencing, a spirit of playfulness and a dose of inspiration to help students deepen their practice. She seeks to help others thrive in live by nurturing body, mind and soul with yoga, and her hope is that students step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.
