THIS PROGRAMME IS HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Andiappan Yoga Community partners with the Hong Kong AIDS Foundation to share yoga with people who live with HIV.

“I am very excited to begin this program. You would never know the participants live with a chronic illness. They look more fit and healthier then most people; you can see that they take care of themselves. And I was really impressed with their attitude; you can feel their zest for life and see that they live in the moment.” – Master Yoganath Andiappan

Foster Barnes

Foster Barnes began experimenting with yoga in 1998 as an alternative form of exercise, and readily discovered that the practice also promoted mental and spiritual benefits. He uses the restorative power of yoga to correct imbalances in his body and mind. He practices to improve his posture, balance, and alignment but also to calm his mind, manage anxiety, and open his heart. Learning and exploring various aspects of yoga led Foster to the practice of karma yoga. Today, he serves the Andiappan Yoga Community as volunteer coordinator, assisting a team of volunteers in their efforts to share yoga with others. He also teaches a yoga program for people living with HIV. Foster has completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training course in St. Petersburg, Florida, U.S.A.; 200 hours in Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda; and 200 hours in Advanced Hatha, levels one and two, at Anahata Yoga, Hong Kong.
