Traditionally, kung fu was taught one on one.  This enabled the teaching to become personal and detailed for the student.

Kung Fu Yoga™ is based upon the physics (dynamic alignment), chemistry (nervous system)  and consciousness (awareness) of the practitioner.  The focus is placed upon how movement happens, as opposed to movement itself.  This expedites the learning process, develops power and flexibility with the least effort and prevents or heals injury.  The form is objective. 

Your constitution is unique. You come in different sizes and shapes.  You have different movement backgrounds ranging from the absolute beginner to the trained athlete.  You have been on this earth for different amounts of time.  Your path is subjective. 

My teaching process is simultaneously objective and subjective.  Students celebrate breakthroughs in their practice, work and life – as truly, all is one.  

I teach new students by referral only.  For more info email:

"Practicing yoga with Hwalan is physically challenging, mentally invigorating and spiritually uplifting. All at once she calms and stimulates the body and mind. She is knowledgeable, articulate, creative, passionate and committed to the advancement of her student’s practice. As an actor and former student of the Meisner Technique, Hwalan is able to see the connection between one's yoga practice and an actor’s ability to be fully present physically and emotionally in their work. I recommend a regular practice with Hwalan to strengthen and deepen the connection to the breath, the body, the spirit and the soul."
