“I wanted to explore if yoga practice can help to alleviate the physical symptoms experienced by cancer patients. Stress is one of the most common complaints by many cancer patients. Yoga practice helped these patients to build self-confidence in managing the physical symptoms and thereby improve their overall well-being.” — Andiappan Yoga Community Volunteer Teacher Edward, Wah Gor

Hazel Chan

Originally from Hong Kong & was living in San Francisco as her second home town where she had her first yoga class. Hazel immediately fell in loved with the practice and started taking yoga classes on a regular basis after her return to Hong Kong. She found it was tough to be back after being away from home for a long time and very stressful, also got frustrated adapting to the local working culture & lifestyle again. Going to yoga classes seemed to be her only way out in the beginning and later on she started longing for deeper knowledge in yoga which is actually more than only moving the physical body into postures as the most commonly known nowadays. Under the guidance of different traditional yoga masters from India, with Master Yogananth Andiappan as the main master, she obtained her 200hours Yoga Teacher Certificate in 2013 and completed her 300 hours Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2015 in Hong Kong along with the Intensive Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Chennai, India. Hazel is now a Yoga Alliance registered RYT 500 teacher and recently has completed a Master’s Degree in Yoga & Naturopathy from Tamil Nadu Physical Education & Sports University. As words are not enough to describe how yoga helps her both physically and mentally, she believes by becoming a yoga teacher would be the best way to share her passion, experience and benefits of yoga to the others
