“There are a lot of benefits of practicing yoga. First visible impact is the physical heath. I have got fitter since I started practicing yoga at YogaUp – especially since March when I started going to YogaUp 5-6 times a week. It has also helped me to improve the strength, flexibility and endurance (very complimentary for running). Practicing yoga also helps me start my day the right way as I often attend the 9am class and I feel so energetic after the class. During yoga class, I have to concentrate on my breathing and poses and I would forget about everything else – so yoga helps me clear my mind which is very hard to do in the hustling bustling Hong Kong and in the social media age. I treasure those 60 / 90 minutes totally devoted to myself.
I like the different classes that YogaUp offers – by different instructors in different styles. I love the hot yoga and has been “addicted” to hot class since I first attended last October. What I like most about YogaUp are, of course, the teachers. ChauKei is amazing. As a world champion, she is extraordinary in teaching the meaning of yoga, encouraging students, and demonstrating. She is also an exemplary entrepreneur running a highly demanding yoga studio with a diverse range of classes / workshops / events. All the teachers are extraordinary – the incredible champion Esak, the sweet Johanna, the attentive Chris, the caring Lynn, the smiling Rhiann, the encouraging Madeleine, and the gentle Rosalie.
Yoga has become part of my life and I am very happy to be part of YogaUp community!”
