I think your philosophy in yoga suits the way I see yoga.

I've been with a few teachers and I think it's quite rare to find teachers who appreciate yoga as a tool that needs to be suited to everyone, rather than forcing others into positions they are not comfortable with in the first place.

I like it when you emphasise on listening to your own body, and moving only so much so that you challenge yourself sensitively. Focusing on correct basic posture is always key, and sad to say, there are many out there who focus on looking good rather than focusing on the basics. I for one can do the basics over and over again, because I find that doing the basics right is the toughest skill to master.

Hopefully, your kind of teaching will catch on.

Hi Kris ; )

I met you when i first ventured seriously into yoga and the state of well being. That was about 3 yrs ago at Neem Tree.

It was a brave move as I've never been in a Yoga class before. Your class suited me really fine as it was purely a Men's only class. Through you, I discovered a new level of peace and whenever I find myself in a chaotic situation, I find that I can manage it even better - through calmness and good breathing! I'm never one with a good posture at sitting or standing, but at your classes I really put in effort to learn and discover a new me.

I'm extremely delighted to find someone really patient, understandingand very relaxed, throughout the twists, turns and breathing exercises. And you know what - your smile just warms up the class and puts every one at ease Kris ; )

My favourite poses is the Sun Salutation - just gets me moving mybody, mind and soul! BUT, the ultimate will be the end of the class, when you get us to lie down and sink into the ground, I never fail to fall into a deep slumber. And then you bring my soul gently back with your soothing voice and the sound of the Singing bowl... brilliant!

Thank you for introducing me to Asanas, Pranayamas and all -uplifting names ; )

Kris was my teacher in Yoga since the year 2003.

Kris is one of my favorite instructors as he is very dedicated and sensitive to his students.

Being a naturopath and herbalist myself, being healing centered is an important criterion for effective natural treatment. Kris is such a person. He is a teacher in this field, and yet a humble and friendly one.

He also takes time to explain to us the many ‘whys’ of yoga and this has helped me in turn to bring the true nature of yoga to others.

I highly recommend Kris for your Yoga needs and I want to thank Kris for giving me his constant love and support for my health and naturopathic practice.

This is to recommend with great respect and affection, Kris Zhu – yoga teacher and very good friend.

Kristananda, as l fondly call him was my yoga teacher from 2000 to 2006, in
Singapore. He was taught in the lineage "Sri Vidya” which literally translates Highest Knowledge in the English language .

On the physical front, my experience of yoga under his tutelage , more than a toned body, which is the by product , l developed a stronger immunity to
communicable diseases , even the common flu. lt also addressed my chronic lower
back problem by gently strengthening my spine , and helped along with it, address
my chronic pre menstrual pain.

The kriyas that he teaches develops physical, mental and psychological stamina that
helped me cope with the often stressful demands of work and travel.

Hatha yoga not only toned my body but helped me relearn how to breathe properly
and correctly again. From it, lalso relearned to center myself at work and leave it
all behind after a day’s work , hence lessening "taking home” the stress of work.

To summarize, from Kris’ yoga, l gained more than a toned body . It helped me be
more centred mentally and psychologically. It helped me relearn to breathe
properly, helped me relax more, sleep better , and develop a stronger immunity from
communicable diseases.

lt addressed my chronic back and pre menstrual pain problems through gentle asanas.

Kris Zhu has been my personal yoga instructor since August last year when I arrived in Singapore. I have Fibryomyalgia which is linked to the arthritis family. My body feels pain but there is no physical injury, this is because the messages from the nerves to the brain get scrambled. Kris understood my condition and developed my yoga programmes accordingly. Exercise is very important to keep my muscles and joints moving and Kris has been a real motivating factor in keeping me on track and focused. He always make sure that you are practicing the yoga poses correctly and not over stretching.

I have really enjoyed learning yoga with Kris, he has a holistic style of teaching and is always willing to share information. I also attend Kris’s night classes which are small and intimate. These are great as you get to know the other people attending and being small you get Kris’s personal attention throughout the class. He always emphasis the importance of moving at your own pace and encourages people to focus on their own abilities not what others can do.

He is very knowledgeable on herbal remedies, alternative medicine and the spiritual side of yoga, which I have found fascinating. I have also had ear candling session with Kris when I had a blocked ear from flying. This was a wonderfully relaxing experience which cleared my ear and stopped the dizziness that I was experiencing when doing some of the yoga poses. I would certainly do this again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to clear their ears.
Kris has become a friend who I greatly admire and I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone who is looking to learn and practice yoga. I always feel better after attending Kris’s classes and my strength, balance and flexibility has greatly improved. I am amazed at how quickly my body adapted to the more difficult poses.
