Ruka’s first encounter with yoga was during a kids yoga class at
her primary school in Malaysia. However, it was not until 2015 that
she attended her very first in-studio class at Hot Yoga Wellness
Concord – a place which soon became her “home away from home”. In
hopes to spread the benefits of yoga, she completed her 250 hour
teacher training in 2016 and continues to build upon her
foundational training to deepen her knowledge.
With training in Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, she works on offering a
safe and welcoming space that fosters self-awareness,
self-discovery and self-love. Her teaching style is slow but
strong, focusing on the awareness of the mind-body-breath
connection. Off the mat, Ruka loves her plants, soy lattes and
spreading warmth to others!
