About Us

The Start

Riana Yoga Singapore, formerly named Iyengar Yoga Singapore,  

first started in 2008 amidst the busy Chinatown area in Neil Road.

Yoga was still very new in Singapore and the centre, founded by Riana A Singgih, was the first to be a truly dedicated Iyengar centre

 

The centre now at Balmoral Plaza,  is led and run  by Suzan, Riana’s sister, who has been practicing Yoga for more than 2 decade.

A warm & loving sanctuary

Having grown up in a warm home full of love, the 2 sisters want everyone to also experience that kind of family love when one comes to the centre. To make you feel good, strong and loved!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Riana & Suzan are like Yin & Yang,  

2 different opposite yet complimenting characters that makes Riana Yoga works.

 

There is strength and flexibility, firmness and softness, sternness and humour.

About Riana A. Singgih

The Founder

1M0A3650_edited.jpg

Riana A. Singgih is an inspiring, dynamic teacher who makes practicing Yoga fun, enriching and fulfilling.

 

She has an abundant love of life and people, and teaching Yoga is her way of inspiring others to live life to the fullest, just as learning an asana pushes one to go beyond our own pre-set boundaries

 

Since young, Riana has a passion for dance and movements. Her interest in Yoga was sparked after she tried a Yoga class at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco in 1987.

Lessons with BKS Iyengar - The Great Guru

The memory of the lightness and joy she experienced after every Yoga classes prompted her to look for her Guru, B.K.S. Iyengar in Pune, India. Since then, she travels regularly to Pune, India to be close to her teacher B.K.S. Iyengar himself (until his demise in August 2014).

Riana developed a close relationship with her Guru and was deeply affected by his simple ingenious solutions to yoga and life challenges. His boundless love and energy to help others through Yoga and most of all by the sense of humour of a child that he maintains.

She accompanied B.K.S. Iyengar as one of his ten disciples during his last overseas trip to China in 2011, the last continent that Iyengar Yoga has not spread to. Riana is among the most senior teachers in Asia and the world.

Teaching Teachers - Passing on the Passion

Riana has been conducting teacher trainings in Asia for more than more than 15 years across Indonesia, Singapore and China.
