Student’s feedback

“I have learned that Yoga compliments my values in life, and that I will now continue to use the teachings of Yoga in all aspects of my future.

This course has taught me more about my body. Despite being very tight and restricted, I can still enjoy the asanas as far as my body will allow.

I learned to communicate with parts of my body, and that in turn, those parts of my body will respond to me.”

— Ant Baines, former Cathay Dragon Captain

Student’s feedback

“This course has made me realize how much I did not know about yoga.

I’ve learned that not only is yoga more about the self-discovery and exploration of one’s spirituality but that this is what yoga is grounded and founded on, only later were asanas introduced.

Mind blown.“

— Kate Josey, Social Worker

Student’s feedback

““This 200 HR Virtual Teacher Training course has changed the way of how I think about yoga in many ways.

It is my pleasure to take the 200HR Yoga training with ChauKei and with all the awesome fellow trainees. Very grateful that there is a virtual course for me to take during this difficult time, it is not easy to create a Yoga training course virtually but it succeeds!

Because of this online course, I can easily take it in my hometown Macau without taking the ferry every day to Hong Kong.”

— Sharon Au Ieong, PHD student, Semi Professional Artistic Swimmer

Student’s feedback

“The course is so student centered.

ChauKei has practiced what she preaches in this course and applied her yogic knowledge in

bite size pieces for everyone and anyone.

She makes everything so accessible to all lifestyles. The pre-recording video is super user friendly,

Its easy to navigate, its clear what each video is talking about and they stay on topic!

I can go back and find the appropriate video so easily! and not have to scan through a

2 hour video for 20minutes of content.”

Student’s feedback

“The YogaUP’s virtual teacher training course gave me an overall introduction of

“what is yoga”. I have gained both textbook-learning knowledge and practical knowledge

of yoga through this course.

Prior to taking this course, yoga to me is an exercise. I used to practice yoga to keep fit and

to get into shape (toning muscles). And I used to only stick to hot classes as I thought they

are the only type of yoga that could give me the effects of a proper workout.

Since the course, I was introduced to other kinds of yoga and I have developed an

appreciation for unheated classes as I realized they are just as beneficial and challenging.

Now, yoga to me is more than just a physical exercise, the mind plays an important part too.”

— Florence C.

Student’s feedback

“I have learnt both physical and mental areas of knowledges in this course.

Although this course is not aa in person course to study but it is a worthy course to spend time on it.

This course is a whole new level to me, it has brought me the much needed mental clarity in this

chaotic world and taught me mindfulness.

I am thankful to all the Yoga teachers in this course, who taught me Yoga is more than a physical exercise.


— Hetiz W.

Student‘s feedback

“This training changed my perception a lot about yoga before this course I thought yoga was just flexibility,

but now my perspective changes, now to me Yoga is about life.

When all these things get together you can see the meaning of yoga and you can add them in your life.

I am really happy that I joined this training and looking forward to and start my teaching thank you ChauKei!”

— Ozlem D.

Student’s feedback

“This training changes how I view Yoga.

It’s not about how others see you, it’s not about simply doing Asana or pranayama, it’s about connecting with yourself, it’s a personal journey for everyone. It should be non- judgement, no competition,

and no matter what your chronological age is. When I step on the mat to practice

regularly, I can see how my body, mind and breath are different each day.

Another important change in my perception to be a Yoga teacher is I should teach students what they need rather than what they want. Alignment is much important than the form of yoga pose.

And we should look at an Asana as a process rather than a final product. “

— Kenix C.

Student’s feedback

“YogaUP creates a genuine community in which everyone dives in and learns in positive vibes.

The content of the training covers al the fundamental knowledge every yoga teacher needs.”

— Sally T.
