Teachers > Cinderella Yau
Cinderella came to yoga to escape from a knee surgery and amazingly found the home for her "self". Since 2002, she has been joyfully practising yoga at Pure and being inspired by yoga's ability to reveal the loving kindness of every human soul.
With the realisation that yoga had become the focus of her life, she completed the Teacher Training Programmes at Pure Yoga, Hong Kong and at Yoga Vidya Gurukul in India. Cinderella's strong background in education made her a natural at teaching. Her gentle style reflects her respect for the individual needs and abilities of each student. She emphasises the proper use of breath and alignment to encourage a safe and playful practice.
Cinderella holds heartfelt gratitude to her teachers for their knowledge and love, to her yoga classmates for their sharing and support, and to her students for their receptiveness and love. She remains a humble student and believes that this is her greatest teaching tool. "I feel blessed every moment that what I do is what I love."
