A San Francisco Bay Area Yoga Teacher
Poh Teng offers group and private yoga classes in Oakland and throughout the Bay Area
Poh's Style of Yoga
Known for her curiosity, playfulness and nurturing style, Poh offers yoga practices that cultivate spacious presence for the busy, modern life. Poh comes to yoga with a PhD in biochemistry and a career in intellectual property. A corporate yogi, her personal practice revolves around nurturing body, heart and mind towards homeostasis as she navigates a demanding world. This is the flavor of her yoga classes. Poh teaches from the heart and offers her unique blend of attentiveness to healthy alignment, courageous + compassionate self-inquiry, and deliberate relaxation. Typically, there's a splash of Bhakti and she sings.
Yoga is a come-as-you-are party. Poh invites you to honor your truth in the present moment, and to breathe, heal and play. She encourages you to be your own best friend. Join her for group classes at Namaste Yoga + Wellness.
Poh is proud to be a Yoga4Niroga Ambassador, supporting Niroga's work in bringing the healing practice of yoga to under-represented populations in the yoga industry. Niroga is an inspiration to her in making the world more peaceful and kind, one breath at a time.
Metta - A Teaching Practice Blossoms From Self-Love
Poh found yoga in 2003. What started out as a self-care practice for stress management and for healing from scoliosis and osteopenia became a method for joyful living. She was encouraged by teachers Eden Goldman, Gerhard Gessner and Rachel Krentzman. Coupled with her Passage Meditation practice, she was inspired onto a path of service, to help others heal and feel whole again. These days, her journey continues with Lakshmi Norwood, Vickie Russell Bell, Chandra Easton, Ashley Sharp, Ann Dyer, and Jin Sung.
