A wellness series of simple yoga and meditation practice in the
galleries, led by Neem Dewji and Irving Yee, from Yoga for Bliss,
Riverdale. All levels welcome.
Neem is the director of Yoga for Bliss. She first started practicing yoga at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in London, when she was a teenager. She has been teaching Hatha Yoga for over 16 years and is certified with the Integral Yoga Institute in New York City. She teaches Level 1, gentle, chair, and restorative yoga. She also teaches meditation and stress management workshops. "It's wonderful to have been able to create a yoga and wellness community in Riverdale and Yonkers!".
Irving Yee first started learning Tai Chi Chuan with Yang Style Grandmaster William CC Chen at the age of 25. Within a very short time, he became an assistant teacher at the school while participating in many martial arts competitions around the country and world. In 2001, he won his first major Push Hands tournament in the USA Wushu Kung Fu Federation National Championships in San Diego. He went on to compete in many tournaments, including the 2004 Chung Hwa Cup International Taijiquan Championship in Taiwan.
Irving has been the Tai Chi instructor at Wave Hill gardens for over 10 years. His approach has been to teach Tai Chi as a way of life, bringing nature into focus, so students can observe the beauty of nature and respect its forces. His teachings and ideas are based on those of Master William Chen and Master Garry Choy, to whom Irving is very grateful.
