About Iris Tan

Iris is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. Previously a cheerleader and a dancer, she finds it a challenge to stay still, and is constantly on the lookout for new challenges, as she enjoys the adrenaline rush that comes with being out of the comfort zone.

Iris started her journey with hot yoga in 2010, which helped to rehabilitate her body as well as provide her with a greater send of peace and purpose. In 2014, she took her 200 hours Teacher Training in Sydney with Briohny and Dice (affectionately known as Bryce) and in 2015, after a falling out within the family business, she decided to combine her love for yoga and the passion of sharing, officially starting her journey as a yoga teacher.

Iris believes that yoga is about the union between the physical practice and the breath, and that the breath is our best teacher — it tells us when to go deeper and when to rest. Her classes are fun and mostly light hearted. She believes in establishing strong foundations through proper breathing techniques and asanas. When she is not on the mat, Iris works in the facilities management sector, and she also enjoys putting together flowers as a hobby. Her favourite foods are natto and avocado.
