About The Teacher

Evelyn’s spiritual practice started at a young age. Growing up in a Buddhist family in Malaysia, she remembers going to temples to attend meditation sessions with her parents. She remembers trying and failing miserably at sitting still and attempting to meditate as a child. Eventually, she decided meditation was not for her and that she preferred to move and do sports instead. 

Then 12 years ago, she discovered yoga. The perfect combination of using both the body and the mind. She admired it for its physical challenges as well as its spirituality – the side that was instilled in her in her youth that never really left. 

Evelyn teaches a blend of hatha, vinyasa and yin. She believes that yoga is an all-encompassing practice and is beneficial in so many ways, no matter what “style” you practice. She loves teaching and making connections with her students around the world. Her main focus is always on the individuals and how to get them what they need. She continues to grow with her students in every class constantly striving to make the learning experience more enjoyable.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
