International Yoga Day 2019 Cyberport, Hong Kong

23 June 2019

Ongoing
Yoga is an ancient physical and mental practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness.
Today it is practiced in various forms in Hong Kong, around the world and continues to grow in popularity. Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21 June as the International Day of Yoga. The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness in Hong Kong and worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.
With this effort, the Andiappan Yoga Community aim to raise money to support its various projects in providing free yoga classes to different groups within Hong Kong – the elderly, breast cancer survivors, overseas domestic workers, the homeless, university students, and low-income families/housewives, among others. The fifth annual International Day of Yoga will be celebrated at the Podium of Cyberport Hong Kong on Sunday, 23 June 2019, with a "Yoga Session with Yoga Masters."
Not only will this event increase the understanding of “yoga for all”, but the event also hopes to honor and celebrate the volunteer leaders and all the volunteers who have tirelessly donated their time and effort in actively teaching within our yoga community.
Let us join hands and share your love of yoga with the ones you love.

Louise Vas

Louise is an advanced Hatha Yoga teacher, having 600 hours of training from the International Yoga Academy (IYA), with Master Yogananth Andiappan as her main teacher. A teacher under Yoga Alliance and IYA, Louise is also the Volunteer Coordinator for the Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC) and project leader of the AYC’s yoga program for overseas workers, organizing and teaching free yoga classes to more than 150 domestic helpers every Saturday and Sunday with a strong team of fellow volunteer teachers.
Louise is constantly amazed at how the human body works especially during a yoga practice, and based on her own experiences, she believes that yoga is for every body, regardless of age, body type, gender, and personal background. Greatly influenced by the teachings of Guruji BKS Iyengar and the Mahabharata, Louise believes that her dharma or life purpose is to promote self-love, share her knowledge and influence more people to practice yoga and enjoy its benefits.
Aside from Hatha Yoga, Louise also teaches pre-natal yoga, restorative classes such as relaxation and de-stress, and other practices like Hatha Flow and power yoga.
Louise is a regular contributor of yoga articles to the Asana International Yoga Journal, breaking down asanas/poses into an accessible step-by-step tutorial.
Currently, Louise teaches at Anahata Yoga in Central, Hong Kong.
