|Samantha was born in Hong Kong and came to yoga as a natural progression of exercise from school, the gym, and Pilates. In 2002, she eventually attended her first yoga class and finally found her vocation.|
She began training as a teacher at Yoga Limbs in Hong Kong in 2005 and initially joined the training programme just to deepen her knowledge and understanding of yoga. Sam later discovered to her amazement that she enjoyed the interaction with her students and the ability to share her knowledge with them. Since then, she has become a full-time teacher. One of her specialty areas is Kids Yoga, in which she has completed The Foundations YogaKids Facilitator Training & Certification Program run by the YogaKids from USA. She is currently doing its Advanced Training Practicum and will be a qualified YogaKids teacher thereafter.
Sam is a serious Yogi who works hard to deepen her own practice. She brings this same level of commitment to her teaching by allowing students to progress at their own pace under her careful guidance. Although she believes that yoga is largely for personal development, she also sees it as a way of connecting with other people. This is evident in the way she interacts with her students, who find her very approachable, encouraging and down-to-earth. Her approach is full of enthusiasm and she is not afraid to raise the bar at each class.
For Sam, the practice of yoga is a lifelong journey where there is continuous learning. When not practising, she enjoys photography, reading, hiking, travel and food.
