Siwen Xi is a certified yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance in Dharma Yoga (a classical Hatha-Raja Yoga), Yin Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga, and Children Yoga. She started her journey of yoga and meditation in 2010 when she was in high school suffering from anxiety due to auditions and exams, as well as distress about the future as a teenager. She found her inner peace from yoga practice and meditation. In 2016, she gained the opportunity to study yoga with Sri Dharma Mittra. Influenced by him, she has a deeper understanding of yoga as a lifestyle, as a path to self-realization. Apart from teaching yoga, she is now pursuing her doctoral degree in Music Teaching and Learning at USC’s Thornton School of Music as well as a Japanese koto performer.
