Yee Leng is a two-time cancer survivor. After being diagnosed at age 24, she began her quest to discover the mind-body-spirit connection. Her very first yoga class was in 2005 that eventually brought her to Frog Pond Yoga Centre in Princeton where she received her 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2011. Her second news of cancer came at age 48 and she was very grateful and thankful to have yoga with her through treatment and recovery. She credits her practice not only for getting her through the rigors and side effects of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, but also the emotional ups and downs of the disease. Because of her experience with cancer, Yee Leng is drawn to the therapeutic and healing aspects of yoga and meditation. She believes that everyone can come “home” to their bodies, in any condition; quietly listening to the wisdom within.
