Hanim Ariffin

Posted by admin on 06 Apr 10

Hanim Ariffin works as a freelance yoga teacher. She teaches at Havana Estudio, TTDI, and at banks in KL, conducting private classes for a few VIP clients who are just too busy to get themselves to classes or those who prefer the comfort of their home.

Hanim practiced under experienced Iyengar Teachers namely Karin O’Bannon and Birju Metha. She has completed a Teacher Training Course in Mysore, India, under Master Bharath Shetty.

In Kuala Lumpur, Hanim’s earlier exposure to yoga was under Parul Mehta who is a strong proponent of Iyengar Yoga, and Shilpa Ghatalia who is the owner of Jivshakti based in Ampang. She has practiced yoga almost a decade and started teaching over 6 years ago, doing different styles of yoga including Hatha Yoga (mainly Iyengar style), Integrated Astanga and Hatha from Mysore, and Yin Yoga. While in Mysore, she also studied basic Yoga Therapy series.

Before yoga became the big ‘religious’ issue, Hanim was invited to demonstrate yoga poses for 15 minutes for TV3’s morning programme called ‘Malaysia Hari Ini’ which was shown LIVE. She appeared for few weeks and was even invited to have regular appearance due to the high ratings and great responses.

I think you’ll find that Shilpa Ghatalia’s studio is called Yogshakti (not Jivshakti) and she is based in KL near the embassies (France, Thailand etc)on Jalan Ampang (right beside Su Casa) and not in Ampang. If you haven’t taken a class with Shilpa I highly recommend it – she’s a fantastic teacher, a serious yogi and a wonderful person. Inspiring.
