Yoga Program for VTC Students

03 October 2017

Volunteers Required
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.

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.

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

Tanny Tang

Tanny started her yoga journey in 2005. After practicing for 8 years, Tanny has decided to deepen her knowledge by joining a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Anahata Yoga that started in December 2013. After finishing the 200-hour course, Tanny started to teach in the Andiappan Yoga Community’s Free Yoga Classes for Overseas Workers (Domestic Helpers) together with a group of teachers, and has continued to do so until this day. Every week, Tanny teaches yoga asana and pranayama to over 100 overseas workers. In early September 2015, Tanny traveled to India to undergo a 100-hour Intensive Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Certificate Course with her teacher Yogananth Andiappan. This was an Intermediate to Advanced course held at the Asana College of Yoga & Research Centre in Tamil Nadu, Chennai. Due to the constant desire to help more people and learn more about yoga, Tanny pursued further studies by joining the 300-hour Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training from September to December 2015 offered by Anahata Yoga in Hong Kong. Tanny is keen on investing more hours in teaching and sharing yoga and its benefits with more people.
