Word on the Street

I enjoyed the session with Su Mei. The session started with some breathwork, yoga therapy which is quite relaxing and then art therapy which I was able to peep into my subconscious mind. The session ended with a sound healing which is soothing and we sat in a circle sharing what has been uncovered. Felt like it was connecting all my body, mind and spirit in one session.. Su Mei also gives off a very calm and chilled vibe. thank you for sharing your energy.


The Renewal Art Retreat was absolutely fantastic. I came away with new knowledge about myself, refreshed after a beautiful relaxing slow paced weekend and met some really lovely people. Su Mei’s art therapy and yoga facilitation skills for group work really shined and Kate’s cooking skills topped off an amazing weekend. I highly recommend anyone interested in doing art and yoga therapy in a group in a beautiful setting with lovely people come and see what beautiful gifts Su Mei has to offer in her groups.

Anonymous Client

I had four yoga therapy sessions with Su Mei, each building on the last. Across the sessions, Su Mei’s empathetic assistance allowed me to identify tensions and imbalances in my body, to stretch without pain and to rest very strategically. After the sessions, I feel mindful of and compassion for my body. Su Mei has a great understanding of the relationship between body and mind and is able to gently reorient this relationship in a way that I have found very therapeutic. I very much recommend her as a yoga therapist. Thanks Su Mei!


It was a relaxing and insightful session with Su Mei when she conducted a yoga therapy with art and sound healing session in KL, Malaysia. We got to connect with our body in a few Yoga poses and had a partner massage. Then moving into art where we connected with our mind and feelings to express ourselves and what’s going on in our lives currently. Followed by soothing sound healing and connecting with each other over tea. Highly recommended for those who would like to have a relaxing time or to slow down in life.


Su Mei is an experienced art and yoga therapist with a calm and reassuring presence. She takes care to ensure the wellbeing of the participants, and modifies poses as needed to cater to any injuries or discomfort. Through the yoga+art therapy session, there is an opening to connect to yourself, express yourself deeper, and find relief in the process.

Su Mei is very passionate about art and tea and she combines these passions in her services. It comes through her work. She is dedicated and compassionate. You will feel a profound difference just after one session of art therapy with her.


Su Mei is really an amazing art therapist. She is calm and in tune with her clients. Art therapy is also a great way to channel out my subconscious thoughts.


Su Mei has a calm, grounding presence. Our cosy art and yoga therapy group session was a relaxing way to connect inwardly with ourselves and with the group.


I enjoyed a very special, inspiring and relaxing yoga therapy and art class with Su Mei at south of Spain!
