Creative sequences address actions (reason) as opposed to movement (result).  Hwalan takes yoga to the next level by drawing from wu shu (ancient Chinese martial arts), exploring principles of kinetic alignment and dynamic balance, leading to coordination, harmony and oneness with self.  The journey is informative as well as deeply personal and meditative.  Hwalan’s class is a favorite among both students and other yoga teachers.

Kung Fu Yoga™ classes are as deeply healing as they are challenging.

"Hwalan makes magic with movement and makes movement magical. An intense spirituality pervades her approach to yoga, deeping the flow from earth to air. But there's an athletic dancer in her too, one she awakens in her students even if they've never moved this way before. As a rank beginner, I’ve been spellbound and inspired to continue. I imagine that more seasoned practitioners, including dancers and other movement professionals, would have all the more reason to stretch their bodies and boundaries by working with her."
