Back to yoga! Our classes are designed to address the physical, emotional and sensory needs of each person by incorporating music and creative play with strength and flexibility exercises. This yoga experience is one that truly comes to life
Yoga helps to increase awareness and potential of ones body and mind. It encourages each person to reach new limits with a very balances and open approach to their practice!
Partner and community yoga helps us to deepen our connection to others. Whether it be romantic or simply a fun way to enhance our practice, it encourages communication, bonding, trust and compassion. Through touch, we can help each other to stretch further, breathe deeper and balance in ways that we may not be able to do on our own
At Jade Empire Wellness our mission is to meet your every need and create classes that blend with your personality, hopes and goals. We combine music, dance, acrobatics, breath exercises and Thai massage together to give you a fulfilling experience that will never be forgotten.
We Cater to Special Needs!
Especially when introduced at an early age, yoga can benefit children with developmental, physical, emotional and social disorders as well as those with learning disabilities.
Balance poses help to increase body awareness, posture and strength, while relaxation techniques and breathing exercises improve concentration and focus as well as decrease anxiety. Other activities address motor planning, creative and logical thinking, problem solving and sensory issues. Overall, our yoga sessions will enhance natural development both mentally and physically. Our empire aims to provide a gentle, safe and therapetutic environmental that is nurturing and enjoyable for any person with special needs.
No one else does it like us!
Cheriza Kothdiwala (Ho) 何珮瑋 is the studio director of Jade Empire Wellness and founder of Jade Empire Pets.
With an educational background in Pyschology and Rehabilitation (specifically in special needs), Cheriza has been working with children and the special needs population for over 10 years conducting play-based behaviour modification sessions.
Having utilised Play Therapy and Floortime therapy with her ABA practice, she realised that many of the principles overlapped that of children's yoga and both held the same goal of enhancing social, emotional development as well as physical skills. With her outgoing personality, creative ideas and animated mannerisms, Cheriza merges play and yoga to help each child climb the developmental ladder in every way possible, With each session, she brings to life the children's imaginative ideas and together they make a journey unique to each child's individual needs.
Being a strong believer in communication for both platonic and romantic relationships, Cheriza's adult sessions are heavily community based, embracing deeper connections with those who are familiar, and building friendships among all those who join. She encourages focus and awareness while nourishing creativity, emotional strength, self confidence, positivity and well being.
Cheriza enjoys connecting with her inner child and would love to play a part in your personal growth, development and overall happiness
