Yoga Program for VTC Students

Due to Covid- 19 safety precautions, AYC has temporarily suspended all our Projects.  We encourage our Project students  to attend our Free online classes listed in this page. Keeping good health is important during this critical period. AYC has made alternate arrangements to support your yoga practice to maintain good health.  Continue to keep up your yoga practice and stay healthy both physically and mentally. Namaste Please visit this page for ONLINE YOGA CLASS FOR ALL. 
Established in 1982, the Vocational Training Council (VTC) is the largest vocational and professional education and training provider in Hong Kong. VTC provides valuable credentials for some 250 000 students each year through a full range of pre-employment and in-service programmes with internationally recognized qualifications. 職業訓練局(VTC)於1982年成立,是香港最具規模的職業專才教育機構。每年為約25萬名學生提供全面的職前和在職訓練,頒發國際認可的學歷資格

Andiappan Yoga Community is pleased to partner with VTC in providing free yoga classes to VTC students. With the increasing demands of student life, the regular practice of yoga can lead students into well-being and allow them to cope with the day-to-day life of being a student. Dr. Yogananth Andiappan along with AYC Volunteers M/s Louise, M/s Tanny, M/s Shilpa and Master Mahesh gave a lecture demonstration to the VTC students on 3rd October 2017 explaining the benefits of yoga and officially starting the project.
AYC 很高興能與VTC合作,為VTC學生提供免費瑜伽課程。現今社會中作為學生也有一定生活壓力,而常規的瑜伽練習則可促進身心健康減少壓力讓同學們能輕鬆應對日常生活。 Yogananth Andiappan博士與AYC義工導師 Louise、Tanny、Shilpa和Mahesh老師於2017年10月3日為VTC學生進行了一次瑜伽示範課, 正式為此項目揭開序幕。

An energizing sequence of yoga poses combined with invigorating breathing techniques will be taught in the class.
