IRIS: Your Escape with ManulifeMOVE

25 June 2016

Master Yogananth Andiappan was invited to lead a class of 'Shiva Yoga Meditation' to share the benefits of Yoga with the public. The event was available free to the public and participants were able to enjoy a blissful meditation section outdoor. Through this event, Andiappan Yoga Community successfully brought yoga to the public and promoted the benefits of yoga and meditations to the participants. "This summer we will connect you back to Mother Earth, expanding into all things Health & Wellness. Through yoga, meditation, fitness training, music, arts and a special market place, participants can rid their lives of daily pressures and reinvigorated their souls during this two day journey." - IRIS (organizer)

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.
