It had been quite a while since I last attended yoga class. And so I looked forward to the Flow Yoga class at Studio W in Kota Damansara with mixed feelings. While I was eager to stretch out all the kinks in my shoulders and back, I was a little worried I would be bedridden the next day with body aches.

Thankfully, the class started gradually with stretches and simple movements to warm up the body before Roslin, the instructor, led us to more advanced poses. We went through a series of postures – the downward dog, the cobra, the crow, the camel and the cat pose. Yes, you will probably know that quite a number of asanas (poses) are named after animals.

smileA smile can have an enormous effect on your life and the lives of others.

One research has discovered that when people are shown images of happy faces or sad faces, their facial muscles would move to mimic the same expressions. This process called Mimicry would also occur when they viewed video clips of different expressions. So the saying ‘when you smile others smile with you’ may hold some truth.

The Science of Yoga with Gilbert Ng

Posted by jean on 21 Apr 09 - 18 Comments


Well-known international yoga trainer, former chief instructor of Yoga Zone and the first Malaysian to produce his own instructional Yoga DVD (Living in Energy), Gilbert Ng sits down for an exclusive interview with KL Yoga on his experiences and on starting his own studio, Ojasyoga.

Q: How did you first get interested in yoga?
Gilbert: When I was 23 years old, I had quite a serious osteoporosis problem. I was suffering from joint aches and at one point, the pain got so bad I couldn’t even work.

After taking up yoga, my joint pains slowly disappeared in about 5 to 6 months. Ever since then, I developed a passion for yoga and have not stopped practising until today.

Q: Why did you decide to become a yoga instructor and how has your career progressed over the years?
Gilbert: After I was cured, I became highly interested in yoga. Back then, I was working as a hair-dresser cum make-up artist and my work involved lots of traveling to different countries.
