We’re honoured to launch our first episode of She-Hustles with Malvina Kang, the founder of Hom Yoga. We came to know Malvina when she reached out to us about our sheets, and we were blown away by her resume. She’s a young mother of two, a #girlboss of three Singapore yoga studios, and a recent author as well.
“My yoga practice became my spiritual practice, and it is still something I go to on a second to second basis in my daily life - whether it is through managing the yoga studios, mothering my sons, or taking some time alone for myself.”
"But I felt this energy wash over me, and I knew this was the space. I saw it clearly in my mind, and felt it intuitively within my belly.”
"I’m still learning everyday as this journey of learning never ends, which to me - is the most exciting part of having this business."
"I always say there were only two reasons why I opened Hom Yoga. Firstly, I love yoga. I believe in yoga and all of its benefits. Secondly, I really believe that the practice of yoga can make a positive difference in the world - by bringing a certain level of consciousness to the way we see, do, feel and act."
“I try to get my yoga practice in every morning, whether it is a 30 minute session or a 2-hour session - it’s the one thing which I feel offers me the inspiration to have a productive and inspired work day.”
“Of course there are moments where I felt burnt out. Although I don’t look at it as a bad thing. I feel it is good to sometimes challenge yourself, so you learn to understand how to self-regulate and bring yourself back to balance or equilibrium again.”
"It sounds like a cliche, but we spend a lot of time sleeping and healing and growing. Our skin is one of the largest, breathing organs in our bodies, which absorbs everything it is in contact with."
“I feel sustainability has been quite a catchphrase in our modern times. But how I see it is living life the way we should - we have simply forgotten how to.”
"With the level of wastage, toxins, chemicals in our ecosystem, we are heading down a disastrous minefield. Our planet suffers the consequence, and so will our future children. Anything that we can bring back to the pure essence of the natural world, not only brings us back to living a simpler life, but also brings us back into our most natural state of consciousness and awareness. This is something that is so close to home for me - the intention of bringing up my boys in a world that stays true to the natural world."
"When I set the intention to live this finite life fully and with love, the universe aligned itself and like little foot pebbles in a flowing river that I had to cross from one side to the other, I simply had to follow the pebbles one at a time until it led me to where I currently am."
"Sometimes, I look back and can’t quite believe 10 years has passed as I still feel like a baby - some days I am totally unsure as to what I want to be when I “grow up”. However, what I do know is that I have also grown up in this business - in the sense that I have become more empowered as a woman, a mother, a yoga teacher, and a partner in my relationship."
