I didn’t find the meditation help me in much the same way your classes did. I don’t remember much of it but I did come back into the room feeling very calm.
I personally feel very lucky to have found you and your unique signature approach to yoga. It has helped me tremendously on a visceral level, which has really highlighted the power of non-verbal empathic understanding. I also value your capacity to encourage a sense of ease amoung the group, integrating humour, your knowledge and a sense of peace in to the sessions too – thank you!
If you’ve tried yoga in the past, like me, and never really understood the benefits because of poor teaching, crowded classes or you just “didn’t get it” I really urge you to take some classes with Hsin. She is an amazing teacher and her approach to healing both mind and body works wonders. I have practiced with her for a year now and the benefits just keep on coming. I am conquering back and neck pain, strengthening muscles and finally understanding what mindfulness really means. Yes, you have to concentrate and work at it, but whatever fitness level you are at, Hsin will gently ease you into the poses and never allow you to push your body further than it wants to go.
It is not an exaggeration to say that attending Hsin’s yoga sessions has changed my life for the better. My husband who has never taken a yoga lesson before we joined Hsin’s yoga classes is a true convert. We both feel better both mentally and physically! I truly can say that I have become more flexible since attending two classes a week. I also try to practice the spiritual aspects of the session in the daily life. I highly recommend Hsin’s sessions to all beginners and beyond.
I leave every week with such a great sense of peace and positively in mind and body. I am amazed the power your yoga class has to bring some positivity back into my day and week. Thank you for being such an inspirational yoga teacher Hsin.
Hsin is a great teacher and coach. Hsin has a way with her that helps complete beginners like me at yoga. I have also just had my first session of Reiki with her and found the whole experience enlightening and calming which helped me clear my mind. And looking forward to my next sessions.
In the past I tried yoga and wasn’t inspired enough to continue. I attended Hsin’s yoga class for the first time 2 years ago and I was immediately hooked. She is an amazing and inspiring teacher who links intention within the practice of yoga which gives meaning and life to it. She gives individual attention and encouragement tailored to the ability of the individual. Since I joined her class I have improved in strength, flexibility and in a general sense of wellbeing. I really like and look forward to her class.

I joined Hsin’s with some trepidation as I have back, shoulder and hip problems. Hsin eased me gently into the class and since attending my flexibility and wellbeing has greatly improved, I feel I have benefited from attending the classes and look forward to going every week.
Fr. Leon – Reiki September 2017
I experienced very deep relaxation which enabled release of spasm and tension in the large muscles of my leg and back. The beneficial effect has lasted for a week and what was at times chronic pain in this area is now just occasional stiffness. I hope a prolonged course of treatment may remedy the problem altogether. Also , I feel a better sense of hope in regaining a general sense of wellbeing. Hsin’s guidance has led me to reflect on the important interplay between the physical and emotional aspects of ailments and pain. May you be blessed with joy and peace as your work in healing arts brings blessing to others.
Lewis – Reiki July 2017
After my Reiki session, I felt an #inner peace, a sense of acceptance and happiness, and also as though my senses were heightened. My vision seemed sharper, colours brighter and I felt an ease in regards to time. I was not worrying about anything. I feel good within myself now and a sense of connection. I am listening to my intuition more and also allowing more space within myself. Thank you for our session Hsin.

I’ve practiced yoga for more than twenty-five years. I can honestly say Hsin is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. I can already feel an improvement in my flexibility, posture, strength and muscle tone. Hsin’s approach is to stress the importance of doing the little things well, and creating a solid foundation to build upon. Her classes are carefully tailored so all participants can benefit from them—a welcome change to many overcrowded classes offered at leisure centres where less able students are left to their own devices and expected to keep up with everyone else. The body will feel wonderfully stretched, but this is gained safely without the muscle tear and strain that more vigorous styles of aerobic yoga tend to cause.
Jason – September 2016
I’ve been practicing yoga for 4 years now and have had many teachers but your class is one of the best I have experienced, you are a great teacher.
E.K. – April 2016
I meant to let you know that I really enjoyed Wednesday evening’s class – my work is very hectic at the moment (and will be so for a while yet) and I find the class really helps me switch off from the day.
Sophie – May 2016 (Backbend Workshop)
I like the fact that we go back to basics, and being shown so many different ways of getting into backbends, and my back felt lovely when I left. Great workshop.
Alice – April 2016
In the past, I have tried acupuncture and group meditation to bring positive energy into my mind and body. However, it was only when I met Hsin-Yi and she channeled energy into my body that I really managed to feel at peace and completely relaxed. Hsin-Yi has an exceptional empathy, that enables her to be in tune with a person’s being. Hsin listened to me, and recommended ways to improve my life beyond Reiki and to strengthen the relationship between my mind and body. I am very thankful for her guidance and help. I won’t hesitate to recommend her to those who want to discover the incredible healing power of Reiki, but also who are currently feeling at loss and need help to find their way back.

Hsin is a great teacher. Her teaching goes beyond just the poses and helps you focus on how you can bring your practice into your daily life. She always encourages us to try as strong a pose as we can manage but always shows modifications and doesn’t push to do anything beyond what you are capable of on that day
Jennifer – October 2015
I have been practicing yoga for over a decade now, experiencing many different teachers and styles along the way. Without a doubt, Hsin is best instructor I have ever had! Her knowledge, ability and personal instruction have guided me onto a whole other level in my practice.
Katrin – August 2015
As a result of Hsin’s instruction, my practise has improved and developed as I have grown stronger and her attitude of listening and being kind to your own body has extended into my daily life. I love going to her classes and I’ll continue to for as long as I can!
Yasmin – December 2014
I had the best sleep last night . It was so deep, right until my alarm went off this morning. I usually get up at least twice in the night, most definitely the effects of your nurturing yoga class.
Elizabeth – August 2014
I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for the last ten years. It was only when I started taking Hsin’s class six months ago that I began craving a commitment to yoga and seeing it as much more than a way to exercise and gain flexibility. I have found a much deeper connection to myself through her class. Hsin’s classes also challenge you to engage and push your body to get the most out of each pose.
Recently, I booked a private lesson with Hsin as a birthday treat. I appreciated how much she was able to tailor the lesson to my preferences, and really work with me on proper alignment and engagement, which are skills I will be able to use in my home practice. I will definitely be booking more one to one lessons in the future and would recommend both these and her classes to beginners as well as the more advanced.
Jane – March 2014
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Yoga again today – the time just flew with those longer poses – very meditative. I loved it thank you.
Juno – Taiwan, November 2013
I am living in Taiwan. I normally do not sleep well during the night after a fall where I broke my ribs. I was waiting for a shoulder operation at that time. I came to Hsin because of my daughter. I do not know about Reiki, I was in a lot of pain and finding it difficult to move around so I decided to just give it a go. Unexpectedly, after the distance healing, I have had my best sleeping night ever. Furthermore, Hsin can sense exactly which parts of the ribs that I broke and even my old injury to my ankles. She can even sense my deep emotions. I have done Reiki a few times now with Hsin. She senses my personality through healing without me telling her, my pain was reduced and my ribs reovered quickly. I was very impressed with Hsin’s Reiki distance healing.
Caroline – Oct 2013
Hsin is wonderfully insightful yoga teacher and I feel that each time I leave her classes my mind is clearer, my body more energised and my spirit more at peace with the world. Her yoga practice is equally challenging, supportive and nurturing for those just beginning or for someone more advanced.
Titta – May 2013
‘In various moments of my life I have had Counselling and always thought it worked,only to realised after time that my issues were still there and my problems were unchanged or even bigger. When I started Counselling with Hsin I coulnd’t believe how deep and painfull were my issues still but it seemed very easy to trust her with my emotional blockages and talk about it with Hsin. Session after sessions I realised that my awareness of myself was greater and I felt my body and my soul lighter and ligher every time…. I felt for the first time my issues were recognised and addressed and it was a comforting feeling. Hsin guided me every step of the way with her compassionate yet straight guidance. She made me face my emotions and liberated me from my low self esteem that has plagued my life for so long.I have never felt better that now. For the first time in my life I feel amazing after 30 years of self inflicted negative thinking and I am a different,happier human being. I feel lucky and blessed to have met Hsin as I feel without her my life wouldn’t be so fantastic today.’
Kate – October 2011
‘Just a quick note to say how much I enjoy your wonderful Yoga classes… I honestly mean it when I say they are the best I have ever experienced… I wake up on Monday mornings looking forward to them.. Believe me Hsin when I say u really do have a gift.’
Marie – October 2011
‘Thank you so much for tonight Hsin. It was amazing and it really felt great to be in peace and take time “out” and forget everything to focus on our body and soul. You feel like family and I feel very lucky to have met positive people like you. You are really talented, and you do give a lot. There’s no price for what you give us! Thanks again for your wisdom.’
Francesca – November 2011
I have met Hsin through counselling and my experience has been fantastic. Since my first session I felt that she had a deep and caring understanding of my issues and she was able to clarify a lot of emotional situations that I was experiencing in my life. Her guide has been precious not only for me but also for the people around me, my family and my friends because I was able to feel more confident and certainly more happy.
I also experienced Yoga with Hsin and again it was a one-of a kind experience for me. I have done Yoga before, but never felt better, more energised and elated after a session with her. She brings her light in anything she does.
Michael – Counselling client
I really appreciated the time Hsin had spent with me during the worst time in my life when I suffered from depression. Hsin became my counselor and I had a session with her every week for over two months. I felt a clear mind and much more relaxed after each session. She understood what I thought, felt what I felt, guided me through issues and helped me to find a way out of the complexity. It was an invaluable gift to have such an experiences with her.
