Singapore Mental Health Film Festival 2019 | WORKSHOP: Morning Flow + Meditation
Morning Flow + Meditation by Cheryl Tan — The Breathe Movement
Our body stores information from the life experiences that we gather from birth to present. We utilise movement to feel different sensations that arise from engaging various parts of our body, and tune in to the thoughts and emotions that come along naturally. In the seated practice, we will slow our pace down as we bring gentle but firm focus to the inhale and exhale breathing patterns; objectively watch the thoughts, sensations, and emotions that may arise during the practice.
This practice allows us to calm our thoughts and bodies, and helps us step away from the need to take flight, freeze or fight when we bump up against situations that may be triggering to us. We will be able to tune into our bodies on a much deeper level, and gain a higher level of self–awareness.
You do not need to be an experienced yoga or meditation practitioner to attend this class. You’ll just need to bring a curious, open mind to the class, and simply allow yourself to be present.

About The Breathe Movement
The Breathe Movement is a a social organisation that seeks to increase the emotional and mental resiliency of individuals through the practice and philosophies of yoga.
Through the synchronization of breath, organic movement and creative expression, we want to inspire individuals to connect with their inner strength, confidence and ability to make healthy, sustainable life-choices.

About Cheryl Tan
Cheryl is an imperfect human with an infectious laugh. She has dedicated her life to uncover the dark and light within herself, constantly expanding her inner awareness to observe the intricate stories that surface with each layer. Infused with this work of conscious movement, meditation, writing and art, she has realised pathways for healing and self-transformation to occur. She has come from the advertising world where she was driven by educating the masses on brand stories, and has switched her focus to use raw human stories to inspire courage and love in the people around her.
Cheryl’s passion in social justice and mental illness awareness drive her to be of service to the Earth and her people. She is eternally grateful for her teachers who have taught her beautifully tough life lessons and to bring her practice off the mat and into the world - Scott Petrie, Seane Corn, Mary Taylor, Richard Freeman, her parents, and high school teachers.
Cheryl is the founder of The Breathe Movement, and the Festival Director of the Singapore Mental Health Film Festival 2019.
