Bringing Mind Body Studies to Singapore; a conversation with Sa Chien Khaw and Simon Wong

Posted by on

An interview by Cydria Schaefer, June 27, 2015

The moment I tune into my body, I’m here.  I’m not in the future, and I'm not in the past. So I think that is one of the key contributions to living more alive.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Sa-Chien--Simon-Pic.jpgSa Chien Khaw and Simon Wong graduated from the Mind Body Studies Academy Foundation Training in 2014.  Both residents of Singapore, they work together offering ATM (Group Classes) at Gallery Helios, where Simon also gives NLP trainings, and teach FI (Individual Lessons) in people’s homes.  They have given a workshop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and plan to do more in Asia.

The Prayer Lesson- A feeling of Peace

Posted by on

Last October, when we completed our Foundation seminar, I couldn't believe that we were already more than halfway through our training! Each seminar is such an enjoyable surprise, and also follows on so naturally from the previous ones. This training builds globally, from the center out, each seminar wrapping around the one before. This time, after experiencing many wonderful ATMs, I felt as though I had so clearly embodied the concepts that I could literally roll along the path home.

Near the end of the series of ATMs was "The Prayer". We started the movement in sitting and in lying and gradually worked our way through many combinations. As we progressed through the variations, the feeling in the room became increasingly quiet and calm. I have witnessed this when I am teaching in my own classes, a wonderful sense of softening, almost like the very air in the room has a different quality. I suppose it does in a way, as everyone begins to deepen their awareness through noticing when they breathe in and when they breathe out and whether they sense any further changes all along themselves in relation to the floor. It is as if they melt further into the floor during the scans between movements. I often have the sense of cracking an egg and watching the whites spread out! You can see and feel the difference as the people in the room let go.


This lesson is particularly profound, a universal movement of prayer. Whether you are religious or not, the movement and the corresponding awareness one brings to it has an impact on the system that is so noticeable, so tangible.
